I promised an update this week of my current projects and this is it! I have incorporated hammering, wire wrapping, stringing, and using a dapping block into these items. I don't have them posted to Artfire yet, but hope to soon. Please post a comment and let me know what you think of my newest creations! The glass beads were made by my friend, Jeanne (AKA gammiebrat) and I love the color of the beads with the copper. Thanks, Jeanne! Jeanne and I also invested our dollars together to purchase a kiln and are hoping to make some good use of this learning to use PMC (precious metal clay) and perhaps some other glass items. Thanks for looking!
