Have you ever started making something only to get about half way in and suddenly find yourself thinking, "Why the hell did I start this in the first place?"
That was pretty much my thought process on this project. I started to stamp way-passed-its-expiration-date clay with an antique button. It seemed like a good idea - looked pretty cool right away - but as I began to lose feeling in my thumb and forefinger from pressing so hard and my ADHD mind began to think of all of the other things I could be doing... I suddenly hated what I was doing. Not entirely unusual for me. I get bored fast and kind of drive myself crazy with my own impatience. Soooo..... I stuck it out and stamped like a freak until the entire slab was covered.
Then came the part where I could really waste the whole slab by cutting the pattern into something ugly. I figured I couldn't loose with hearts, right? So hearts it is!
I must admit. I totally love these hearts. They are a little chunky, a little funky and whole lot of awesome! (Damn! I have real way with words, don't I ;)
Next up are these large button-inspired pieces. Lots of texture and holes going on.
I'm thinking some wire wrapping, ribbon weaving, clusters of seed beads nestled here and there...
These little links will be sold in matching pairs. Great for earrings or connectors.
This design comes from my own jewelry line. I put a hole in each point to provide you with lots of draping, dripping and dangling opportunities.
Last up are these Deco inspired pieces. I made the mold for this design from a piece I found during my last trip to NYC. It takes the glaze really well and they are big enough to be a focal.
So that's what I have to offer this time around. The update will take place in the shop on Tuesday, June 7th, at noon EST. As always, see the pieces as they go up on my Facebook page.
Hope to see you there!
