First Firing in 2012

Here is where the magic happens,
Into the fire!

Bead rack in the can.

Spring is in the air and our thought have turned to thought of FIRE! We were able to do our first firing since last fall today. Hopefully the weather will stay nice and we can get back into a regular production schedule.

Beads, Beads, Beads

With firing, the waiting is the hardest part. Even with Raku. So I made a few things while waiting with the hopes that the beads and pendants will turn out they way I expected.

Coiled wire earings with newly fired Red Raku beads.

  1. All beautiful stuff! Gorgeous reds on those beads. And I especially like your necklace design!

  2. The red beads were used in a jewelry how to book that is being released next month.I wanted to make sure I had plenty on hand in case people want the exact same bead.
