Great job pandabear! Beading can be so relaxing! emoticon

I turned in all my pendants today, so now I just have to wait for the others to arrive emoticon

Very nice Pandabear . . .

I need to learn how to 'design' beads . . . how to balance the design or make them symmetrical, or whatever.....

give me a hammer or a torch and I'm good to go, but give me a string and beads and I'm all thumbs

so interesting Ladies on your projects. can't wait to see photos when completely done.

Lintpicker...can't wait to see your pendents finished.

Cat-In-CJ...i really like the looks of copper..it seems to be making a come back and i think it looks so rich...got a cheap copper watch from wally world in Feb. i just love the color.

i made 2 sets of necklace, bracelet and earrings for a fund raiser for a local couple facing a hardship. what i have made is not as elegant as you are doing, but just something i like to dabble in and simple to make. pictures of the sets.

so far I am pleased with them, but the firing will reveal how the paints react and if the colors will stay true. I will know by Tues or Wed. if they came out ok. I am looking forward to the results.

so are you pleased with the rest of your pendants???

I'm still working on the copper history display that's going in at the ORegon Caves gift shops.

DH made some awesome poster-type stands from old barn siding (smoothed and sealed) for the display and my 'industrial' copper jewelry . . . how fun.

this is a bigger project than I anticipated . . . and it's taken on it's own identity!

so an update on the pendants....

The first batch - the colors fired horrible! blues were green, reds were brownish..ugggh!

so, my friend got some new glass paint to fuse and I worked on them this weekend. Now to fire the new batch and then grind where needed and then apply the bail and send them all out. In the end I will get 9 different pendants. I can't wait! Then I decided to make 2 sets of nine! then I will get 18 different pendants! Looks like Christmas will be coming early this year!

My photo shows the back side of the water lilies. sorry the paint is still wet, but you get a general idea. The cherries are as is :)

my fellow art teacher has brought in a challenge to create 9 pendants (all the same) and then they will host a pendant exchange. We are working with glass, so it is a little out of my realm! She has shown me how to paint on the glass and then we fire it. I can paint, so this is doable! We will see how well my pendants turn out. I hope to post a picture of the finished work and the pendants I get through the exchange.

I did it! I did it!!! I've been putting off learning to use the propane torch for soldering, etc.

This weekend, I made it a goal . . . and I did it!!!

I soldered several links to make a bracelet . . . they're in the tumbler now. Can't wait to see the finished product!

So, I've been staring at this project for two days now and just cannot get inspired.

I'm wanting to put together a necklace to wear with a new shirt . . . I have some red and black Swarovski beads, bicones, hearts, etc. The colors seem to go with the silver chain and findings but I just cannot get into silver, I love working with copper...... I think I have a mental block.

St Louis Woman, you are welcome on the photo box. I have been working on my weekly work for my blog and some challenges from Facebook groups that I am on. Also I am slowly working on Christmas ornaments. But I have to buckle down and get them done for sure. What about you?

My current project is paperwork . . . inventorying the jewelry I have on hand for the upcoming holiday bazaars (I plan to do 3 or 4)..... the paperwork is my downfall, but I do it! Tho I'd much rather be creating....

I'm thinking about a way to assign inventory numbers at the bench when I complete an item, that way I can get it tagged when it's fresh in my mind . . . . the 'official' label can always come later.

Also I have a plan buzzing around inside my head, of having a structured chart for pricing the jewelry I make, and putting together a quick and easy reference sheet for the commissions which differ for each shop . . . . from 10% to 40%.

I notice I seem to be out-growing my new space already . . . .

Thanks for the tip Tina...... I have a dumb-phone . . . and pay 10 cents a minute/$10 a month . . . so no internet.

I was hoping to work on my photo box today after lunch with the girls, but just learned that DH's daughter's coming over (yesterday was his birthday) . . . . so today's pretty much shot.


Now that DH and I are both retired, I'm afraid we're getting to the point where we resent interruptions to our 'day off'....

Cat-in-CJ one way to make an easy photo box is to get a big cardboard box, cut out 2 adjoining sides, get some white cotton fabric and cover the box with it. get an office lamp with a natural light bulb or very bright bulb that can be aimed into the box. Also if you cant get white fabric you can spray paint the box white, just make sure it is evenly covered. I hope this helps you out.

One thing my Son taught me to do (gotta love the teenagers) is that you can send your pictures from your phone to facebook via messenger. then you can open your messenger up on fb and download to your computer. Works so quick and easy. this might help out. I dont mind posting my pics. Maybe going this route might be easier for everyone else as well

Well, I certainly agree with you both. It is time consuming and SP doesn't make it easy to post pics...... but with that being said, your projects sound so interesting, I really would love to see them.

And that brings me to another item on my TO DO list . . . . to set up a simple 'photo booth' . . .

I don't mind posting the occasional picture though I find it awkward and time consuming to post pictures on sparks (first I have to get my pictures onto my computer, LOL). But I love seeing what other people are working on.

I haven't beaded in what feels like forever, though. My recent craft projects have all been things that are very self contained.

Not sure that this counts, but I am close to finishing some tablet weaving I am doing for my mother (trim, which she now has, and a belt which I have to finish the ends of). Plus I worked on some kumihimo today. But I also realized I can start putting at least some of my beading supplies back in the cabinet where they belong... which makes me that much closer to being able to bead again.

Sorry to hear about the fires, that is scary. But at least you can go and recharge at a bead class. We dont have anything like that here at all. So I am left to my own devices. But I did bead all weekend for my blog post today. Now I just have to get off my butt and post it lol. I am also working on a bracelet from beadwork magazine but I had to put it on hold for the blog work so I am hoping to get back to it this week. Good luck at the dentist and be careful of the smoke

Today my first priority is getting ready for a dental appointment this afternoon.

I've tried to work on some jewelry these past few days but haven't been able to really focus.
With the forest fire across the river from us, and all the smoke, and first one thing then another, I just haven't been able to focus......

Tomorrow is beading class and that's always a shot in the arm for me . . . so many wonderfully talented ladies!!!!

Sadly, I haven't done hardly any beading since I moved last spring (3 moves in 6 months, followed by a massive remodeling job as my husband has been finishing the basement) so almost all of my beading supplies are in boxes *sob* But I have been weaving and braiding, and the basement is getting close to being done so hopefully I'll be able to unpack my beads and have an actual work space!

did you have knee surgery as well? Do you have problems with the scar tissue coming back again and again? What kind of exercise will you be doing?

I am trying to walk on the treadmill about 10 min. but I want to make sure I am bending the knee and walking correctly.

LINTPICKER, I have been working on getting my leg muscles back to normal too. You're right, it is hard work but I'm definitely making progress. The doctor even released ne two weeks ago to start exercising again. It's hard to get back into that too.

LOL this is what I say when it comes to housework, priorities! Beads are calling and the dusting is not lol

I will not allow the tragedies in my life to become a negative influence in the world.

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And wisdom to know the difference.

I know it all boils down to priorities and often our priorities are for other things! I guess that is ok though!

Sorry about your legs. I do understand. I also understand about the desires to do more crafts. Why can't there be more hours in the day to craft lol

I have finished 3 sets of earrings (enameling), but mostly I have been working on getting the movement in my legs back to normal. It is a whole lot of work!! I have also been working on Google classroom, setting up lessons for my next year classes. I have lots of ideas (I do this every year! trying to improve!). I have been wanting to paint as well... so many desires and so little time!

I am working on my usual weekly projects and Just finished 3 three strand necklaces. I am also working on designs for Christmas ornaments and about to start working on a commission piece.

What projects are you or have you been working on?

I am going back to work next week on Wed. That is now my primary project. I already have many of my lessons on Google classroom and I am thinking about how to change things up from what I normally do.

What is your current project? Are you creating, cleaning, or planning? Let us know what you are doing
