Well here we are again 5 weeks away from the cruise ship season. So we have been digging in cupboards and drawers to find findings and molds we have been buying for the last 10 years and saving for when we had time. We made a conscious decision this year to purchase as little as possible and use up what we have on hand. The start of the year works out well no promises for later however.
Have done several new dichroic pieces.A smaller pendant that we will put on a leather cord.
Hopefully they will be good sellers
Had made some dichroic hair clips several years ago and they were popular products. Found a few more findings so will have them on the table as well.
Had lots of beads and memory wire for bracelets and as well found some magnetic hematite
so bracelets it is:
There are more colours but all in the same style. Memory wire now used up but still a few hematite strings left.
Have lots of pieces of sea glass picked over a life time of wandering beaches so am playing with a few ideas. Neither one I am really happy with at the moment. Thought of putting some pieces in a wire cage.
Its kind of okay but doesn’t show up like I hoped it would.
The other I really like the concept but can’t find the right finding. I want our visitors to take home a little bit of Cape Breton with them. So what better than sea glass and sand from Dominion Beach.
Really want an oval hollow glass dome but the domes I can find are solid and made to show or magnify pictures. Will keep looking.
