I've been very busy getting ready for 2 Events scheduled for the weekend of December 7 and 8th. For many weeks, I have been cutting Glass triangles in various sizes & colors for the 4 different sizes that I create. I arrange & glue 6 triangles into a STAR shape with a temporary glue, which takes about a day to dry. After drying, they are fired for approximately 3 hours, kiln annealed (cooled slowly) for about 6 hours, cleaned and then decorated with complementary beads and wire, and are ready to hang.
While the stars are 'baking', (they are actually being 'fired' as I am typing this blog post) I am working on other details to get ready for the shows. Today, I will be finishing up a few more Fairy Houses, loading a kiln, and then inventorying and pricing Stars, Jewelry and Pottery for the show. After taking a break a few hours to spend time with my family, I will then sit down to wire more stars and working transforming my handmade glass beads into Jewelry. It's so satisfying when I get the stars packaged & ready to go and to put my earrings onto their cards, ready to sell. I'm hoping to find a good movie to watch while I'm working tonight!
