I went a little crazy with my layered pendants this week. I took these hearts to the extreme!

Headpins! This little batch of headpins represents about five years of experimentation. I played around with this idea years ago but never found a high temp wire that would hold up and stay flexible after firing to cone six. Not too long ago I was encouraged by some tests run by Marsha Neal and after having a chat with her I found some wire, did some tests and ta-da! It worked! That's not to say that I totally enjoyed making them. To be honest they are a pain in the butt. However, it worked. So there you have it.

Theses are fun, whimsical flower pendants.

 I love these versatile pieces! I had bracelet focals in mind when I created them but I can see them being a very cool connector as well.

I made some more hollow, stacked, REVERSIBLE beads this week! This time the larger ones you see are truly LARGE. They are a show focal, for sure. And reversible. Did I mention that?

Lastly, some of you have asked me to do a pendant featuring this sweet little bird. So I have. I hope you like them. :)
