A quick picture filled post today... I haven't done many of my circle cut out pendants lately so I thought I'd throw a few in my last kiln load. They work great for pendants, connectors or as closures/toggle loops. Most are double sided just for kicks.
I ended up with lots of wackadoo glaze results in my experiments- I don't usually use underglazes but I decided to play around a bit with them. I ended up with all sorts of different colors that I didn't expect from my combinations. So, the moral of the story is to actually keep notes on what you do!
I really like the raised detail on these guys though, definitely something to continue playing with. They're more work but I think they're fun and they have such neat texture to the touch.
I like this checkerboard in theory but the execution wasn't quite what I wanted. So I'll be trying this idea again. This pendant did some wacky warpy things and has a wicked curve to it.
Last but not least, the one I like best of the bunch... This is actually headed to the lucky winner of the Art Bead Scene challenge for May. I think the colors totally fit with the theme of Monet's Waterlilies and it has a really organic (kelp?) feel I think. Now if only I can figure out what combination gave me these gorgeous colors!
