New bezels. The heart shape was made by Candace Wakumoto - my job is to fill it with something nice. Its still in progress. The bird girl and centaur lady just need resin to protect them. The centaur is for Jean, because she is so good at making my day. So far that means one new one for the show in Philadelphia this weekend. I can't believe how slow I am- these tiny things take a long time make.
I made this polymer baby turtle bead for Azalea, she loves them and was deeply saddened when I told her how few survive to adulthood. She is pleased with her prize. I have so much to do tomorrow! Yet I feel like baking madeleines and reading my books ( treehouse manuals, Jane Austin's complete works and The Alchemyst). I have no desire to pack up the van and get things ready to go. I'm in nesting mode and haven't left the house in days, except to walk the dog or plant toad lillies. I for one am happy that way, Azalea on the hand gets cabin fever and can't wait to go on a walk and talk to people. She is so outgoing and I'm almost a hermit, what a pair we are! Thankfully, both of us love to be in the studio making things and spend hours working (she on her paintings and clay roller and me on my small things) its happiness.
