What Do These Earrings Have In Common?

My “Quadra Play” Geometric Triangle Drop Earrings share many of the same colors and design patterns…all are geometric beadwoven triangles, and the silver hoops upon which they twirl, swing, and sway are all the same size.  Have you guessed what else...

It’s Been Ages, But…

Now that I’ve finished my latest beading project and tutorial I finally have time to replenish my stash of bronze metal clay “Urchins” and “Ammonites” (a special order for these was the impetus). This photo shows the bronze metal clay components in the pre-firing...
