Bead for the Fair

Lathe turned Bead

I promised I would tell you about my second entry for the San Diego County Fair.  I made a bead that had a beach theme.  It had a big wave, a sand castle, some footprints in the sand and a big sun.  But it did not excite me.  I had initially wanted to enter one of my beads that I turn on the lathe.  So I looked around to see if I had one that was nearly finished.  I found one that I really liked that just needed to be sanded and buffed to a nice shine.  I wanted to add some wire and accent beads to dress it up a bit.  I used some crystals.  Give it a little Bling!  I even created the Bead Stand for it so it can be displayed at the fair.  You can check it out there.  -K

Well I guess I will start with Extrusions!

I have gotten to play with the clay a bit.  I made some extrusions using the Makin’s extruder.  I like to mess with my scraps too, so here is what I came up with.

I have been planning on finishing some beads that I made on the lathe for Sandy Camp.  These are a few I have been working on.  I have lots of items planned.  So now I need to stick myself to my clay desk and get makin! – K

My Plate is Full too!

My plate has been full too, but the biggest problem is I can’t find the tools I want to use.  But I did some cleaning up of my studio area this weekend.  I found my Lathe, that I could not find when someone ask what brand it was.  I needed my Heat gun, but could not find it to do a texture block.  I found that too.   I found all the Supplies for things that I hope to get made for Sandy Camp to sell in the store.  So tomorrow I should have no excuses.  Right?!  So I will keep you all posted of the wonderful things my mind has been coming up with in the last few days!  -K
