Week 44 - Rocks!

Yep, just some wrapped rocks. I found these at a local show a couple of weeks ago, the picture doesn't do the colors justice. I'm scrambling to get a few last pieces made for a show this weekend, so I'm actually early, woohoo! I took a picture of the both sides because with several of these they look quite a bit different from either side. These are fun to do!

week 43 - Modern woman

A friend of mine started playing with fusing glass, so I bought a few pieces. This long spear shaped piece really has some great colors in it, the picture doesn't do it justice! I added a wrapped swarovski to the top, and the way the wire swirled (it never is planned, it just kind of happens, lol!) it looks like a modern woman :)

Week 42 - show orders

Isn't this a lovely picture? Not so much... my other half went hunting with a buddy and took the camera, so I had to resort to using the scanner, lol! The piece on the left is one I had actually done awhile ago but the buyer at my open house had an omega with a huge bail, she asked if I would re-wrap it in silver and gold so it would fit on the chain. The piece on the right was a lampwork she brought with her and asked if I would wrap it as well in two tones. Sure, why not! I was rather pleased with the result, the go into the tumbler next and then off in the mail. Orders are just about done, so I can play with some new stuff, woohoo!!

Week 41 - Fall Open House

Well its done and over. Last night was my open house. Absolutely no time to do much else this week other than preparing for this. The turnout wasn't what I had hoped for but the sales were decent so I'm not unhappy! Today I will be breaking down and tomorrow packing up to prepare for another show in a couple of weeks go this week I'm just going to show some pictures of my setup. Did I do some new pieces this week? I did, they are out in this mess somewhere, lol!

Week 40 - More wrapped swars

I did quite a few of these the last few days, trying to fill in so I had a decent amount for my open house - 8 days and counting! I'm rather pleased with the results. Now I'm trying to decide the best way to display. The white beans are 'ok', I'm wondering if a darker bean would make them stand out more?

Week 39 - I'm late!

Yep, I'm late, second time this year. This time its HIS fault, he had the camera!

11 days until my open house, yikes! I did not do any wireworking this week whatsoever. I spent part of the weekend baking for my open house (for those of you who know me, this is unheard of) , rearranging my disaster jewelry room so I can find everything for next week, and doing some lampwork pieces. I still have a huge number of lampwork sets, orphans, etc. to do something with, somehow I don't think its going to happen.

Since I didn't do any wirework, I won't take up space posting what I did do; if you are interested in seeing the lampwork pieces, go to http://www.picturetrail.com/gallery/view?p=999&gid=17763239&uid=596157

if that doesn't work, its www.picturetrail.com/nancyvantassell - the first album. The new pieces this weekend are the first 8.
