Flame Off

Get me 2 posts in 2 days!
Well the weather has been soo lovely today I grabbed the opportunity to take some pics. Here are the bits that I made whilst at Flame Off this weekend. It was my first time attending and we had a fabulous time. My friend and I attended the Sliver Clay workshop with Lesley Messam which was great. I made this oval pendant and the disk earrings which actually look lovely on. It was my first step into the Art Clay world and I loved it. I am now all fired up to start making bits at home with the kit my fabulous Hubby bought me for Christmas.
One a less successful note, the wobbly beads shown are the ones that I made. In my defence it was my very first time at the flame and I am not blessed with the co-ordination required to turn my hand ssslllooowwwwllllyyy and steadily away from me and not over heat the glass (shan't be doing that for a living then !) On a positive note I now have an even deeper respect for Lampwork Artists. Lovely Emma Green helped my friend and I without once yelling "are you deaf or just totally malco-ordinated?"
Have a great week xx

Laura you are a kind and generous Lady, the beads are soooooooooo bad :0) I am happy with the silver clay bits though. You are now elevated from duper duper talented to uber super duper talented to make the beads that you do xxxx

Those are great! I have a box of silver clay that is two years old (wonder if it's still any good?) that I need to play with.

Ooo... nearly missed this post. Glad you are having so much fun with silver clay - it's a great medium and I am sure you will create some amazing jewellery. Love those textured circles!
