I am slowly ticking things off my to-do list. And it was nice to finally see a collection of beads ready to start making jewellery (Bombay Sapphire Gin). I wish I had made more beads by now, however with everything else that is going on (moving, settling etc), I think I am also lucky to have done as much as I have.
I am grateful for an excellent childcare centre for one day each week, and for Finn still napping solidly in the afternoon.
For my exhibition at Gallery M, I am using 5 different types of recycled glass.
- Peroni Beer – bright green
- Coopers Ale – brown
- Banrock Station Wine Bottle – clear
- Kronenburg 1664 – cobalt
- Bombay Sapphire – bright blue
I have not used a lot of Bombay Sapphire Gin glass in the past, so I am really looking forward to melting some. It’s a great colour, with a bit more blue than a wine bottle.
I’m looking forward to putting all of these collections together.
