The Wait Is Over

I meant to post these yesterday when they got out of the kiln but I never got a chance.

So here they are ... the beads that were in the kiln from my last blog post. 

I got to see my granddaughter briefly yesterday. She's just started her 4th week of life. The last three weeks have flown by.  Soon, before I can take a good deep breath, she will be half grown then full grown. 

That's how it is with children.  Suddenly it seems as though they skipped childhood and went straight to adulthood ... even though there were times when they were little that I thought I'd never have a spare moment all to myself unless I was using the potty (and sometimes not even then), lol.

But I digress ... um, back to the beads ... I did have a lot of fun making them, but I don't foresee myself making more of these unless I go on another trip. Each one takes a lot to make and I have to let my hands rest in-between.

I'll be putting these in my etsy store this week sometime (in-between seeing the grandbaby and all of that yummy grandparent stuff).  I'm going to put them in there as sets of 1, 2s, 3s, and so on.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. They are beautiful. I must say the glaze really improved them. I couldn't imagine them finished when you posted them unglazed, but they are gorgeous. I like...

  2. Thank you, Jean! They are a bit odd. An unglazed bead is like a human skeleton without the skin and muscles. ;)
