Simple, cute earrings heading to @tartscollective on Saturday when I am spending the day in the gallery! Love my days in Adelaide as the shop keeper.
I haven’t made any jewellery with the red collection of beads yet, I think I will wait until the total gets closer to 1000. Luckily I have lots of other beads already made and ready to make jewellery. It was nice to put a few pieces together over the weekend, getting ready for my next @tartscollective shift.
Added another 70 beads to the collection this morning! I now have 250. That is a quarter of my way to my goal of making 1000 glass beads for this @salafestival exhibition! So far it’s has been fun and I still have lots of ideas for beads, phew.
Adding 70 beads to the collection of red beads. Total is now 180 beads made for my @salafestivalexhibition. I like this mix of sparkly silver and gold beads.
Red glass has a long history of being a difficult colour to make, with many experiments to get the different shades, and even the addition of gold to make the colour (and make it one of the most expensive colours of glass). I have been experimenting with red glass from a variety of manufacturers. I now have 110 beads made for my @salafestival exhibition. Aiming for 1000, a long way to go.
