Although I've offered heart shaped pendants for a while now, I figured I better get a move on and list some on Etsy in time for Valentines Day! The pendant above is in my new pinkish glaze- I'm really tempted to name it "piglet" but not sure if that color label would turn anyone off?! Any opinions?
Then I worked on some cute little heart shaped beads. These have the hole running diagonally across the heart. I think these would be super cute in a bracelet!
The swirly ones below are my "duds". I don't usually have so many failures in a batch but I made those with fairly small holes and the combination of a runny glaze and the hole shrinking during firing meant that I had 9 beads where the wire they were suspended on during firing couldn't slide out. Any one want them for scrapbooking, to put in a little bowl, to carry in your pocket, to put in a fishbowl...? First person who leaves a comment asking for them and telling me what plans you have for them gets them!
Last but not least I finished up some more of my floral link beads- I REALLY love these, especially as a big chunky focal in a bracelet. They're kind of vintagey feeling to me, definitely very feminine but since they're a good chunky size and weight they don't seem frou frou.
I have lots of things planned for today, first I need to get some beads listed on Etsy then I have some new bead ideas to work on. I wish I didn't have to do the listing part today, I'd much rather go play in the clay and make some jewelry!
