Here’s the mokume gane tiles I made for a beach challenge.
ok, maybe I need a big push! I started remodeling my website in January. I bet you can tell where I’m going with this already. Yes, it’s now June and I’m no farther along that I was in January. I actually got quite a bit done when I first started, … Continue reading
I admit to being somewhat ADD. I will make a set of beads in a certain design/style (maybe even two), then I move on to something totally different. So, I’ve surprised myself with my desire to keep working with mokume gane techniques. It’s not like I haven’t tried it before, … Continue reading
Taking a little break from flowers and decided to play with mokume gane techniques. I haven’t really made tile beads until just recently. I like the fact that I can build a scene on them better than round beads. Here’s what I came up with. I have some cool water … Continue reading
How many of you use Karen Hill Tribe Silver in your jewelry designs? Did you know that the Karen people are enduring an ethnic cleansing in eastern Burma? The result is between 500,000 to 1 million people living in hiding within Burma. In addition, a series of nine refugee camps … Continue reading
Well, DH hit a deer this morning, so the debate over keeping the tile beads is over. LOL! DH is fine, but unfortunately the car and deer are not. They are currently listed on ebay. You can check them out here
I very seldom make tile beads, but am really happy with the way these turned out. They were inspired by my purse (yes, I can find inspiration almost anywhere). I’m debating whether or not to list them for sale or keep them.
I got all my painting and remodeling done in time for graduation. We had a little rain and ended up having the party inside, but all went well. I was reading some of my daughter’s cards today and thought I’d share the message on one of them. It’s something to … Continue reading
Ok, I have not fallen off of the face of the earth even though it may seem like it. My daughter’s graduation is less than three weeks away and there are way too many things I want to get done. It’s kinda funny how the list grows. It started with … Continue reading
Here’s a couple of pics of an experiment in progress. The first pic shows the Kato medium clear right after baking. The second pic is the same piece after using a heat gun on it. It takes quite a bit more heat to get the Kato clear vs. the FIMO … Continue reading
Spring is my favorite season! I’m not even sure what kind of trees they are, but they have gorgeous pink blooms on them. When the blooms are almost spent and the wind blows, it looks like it’s snowing flower petals. Mother Nature really does put on quite a show. On … Continue reading
Hubby and I have been painting all week. This is a corner of the dining room. Only one wall is green (Swallow’s Nest). The other walls are Neutral Ground. The trim is Ottertail and the door is Suave Mauve. Don’t they have fun names for paint? I know you are … Continue reading
I have a confession to make. Not everything I make turns out how I planned. Ok not a big deal, happens to everyone right? Here’s a pic of some recent experiments. I do have to say, that I always learn something from my experiments. For example, I learned that it’s … Continue reading
Still working on custom orders, so I haven’t had much time to play. I did manage to get these fun tiles made. Have a great day!
