Yes, I have committed the ultimate blog sin: not updating for nearly a month. Mea maxima culpa. It was that whole Real Life thing--you know, having a full-time job that has seasonal busy spots--combined with not planning ahead appropriately for those busy spots. I'm sorry!
What I am doing: spending Christmas at my sister's house and spending more time in her studio than she is--the poor kid is barking like a seal with a cough and sleeping every second she isn't at work.
Here are some of the experiments: I was playing around with Frogsong's wonderful tutorial. Frogsong does some lovely beads, and created a technique-based tutorial. Since I like to do structured organics, I was all over that one! So I have been playing with placement and color, as you can see. I like the layered look!
Here are some more.
Over the next couple of weeks I will be listing these on Etsy (as focals) or on 1000Markets (as pendants). Stop by either place and check them out!
