I made this little bead last night, its inspired by the kokeshi dolls of Japan. Kokeshi were usually made from wood and laquer paint and were for children to play with. This one is about an inch tall and will be cast in pewter. I'm going to stay up and make a snail charm to go with my mushrooms. I have this fantasy that I'm going to start making my silver pieces into finished jewelry and having 'collections' and be in galleries. Although appealing, and not terribly difficult, I don't I have the energy. Maybe if I had an assistant, to string the designs, then I could do it. I am the slowest stringer, ever. I'll just contemplate it some more, maybe add it to my things to do list. Well, the work is going good, we've been casting like crazy and buffing till dawn.
