I had a lot of fun making necklaces for the Murray Bridge Show. I will be taking them to T’Arts in a couple of weeks.
Happy days! I promise to take a better photo when I collect my work from the Murray Bridge Show later today. Happy to see the pink necklace got First Prize 🏆 My segmented necklaces got Second Prize. The blue/green recycled glass bead necklace was still a winner in my eyes!
Entry number 3 for the Murray Bridge Show. I like how you can wear this one a few different ways, depending on what beads you want to feature. So which one was your favourite? Entry 1 was the pink necklace. Entry 2 was the blue/green necklace. Entry 3 is this necklace.
Murray Bridge Show entry #2. A mixture of beads made from recycled glass objects like gin, wine and vodka bottles!
Fresh out the kiln! The beads are so pretty. The glass melted beautifully. The colour is even paler than Green Depression glass. Very happy.
Getting ready to make beads with these old preserving jars. I will try a mix of shapes and see how they turn out when I open the kiln tomorrow.
Working on some new necklaces to enter in the Murray Bridge Show. This is the first of 3 entries I am making. Featuring a mix of pink beads I have to say this one is a firm favourite.
Some very old Fowlers Jars sparkling in the spring sunshine! Some of these jars date back to around 100 years ago. They were given to me by someone who wanted them to go to a place where they would be used. I am looking forward to smashing one and melting it soon.
