Cone Six Eggs & Spring Pendants

The Cone Six Glaze Adventure Continues.  As I mentioned in my previous post, I purchased one of the Coyote Glaze 12 Packs, and had a chance to stir them up this weekend and see how they look on my tan speckled clay.  A customer placed a special order for some Easter pins recently, so I thought it would be fun to try out some of these glazes on some of my eggs as well as some of my new spring pendants.

These are the glazed pieces prior to the firing ~~
I purchased the Glaze Sample Pack 3 from BigCeramicsStore.com.  Pansy Purple is not in that sample pack, I purchased it separately.  Oasis Blue and Gun Metal Green are in the Sample Pack, but are not shown here because I purchased them separately and they are in my previous post if you would like to see what they look like.


Here's the pre-fired and post-fired photos of each of the colors in this latest batch.



Yes, I know, Desert, not Dessert.
I used this very cool bead rack that I won from Marla James, and alternated some of the small bead rods I purchased from her with some 14 gauge nichrome wire rods I made for the smaller hole pendants with the wire I purchased from Jacobs Online ebay store.

I love this bead rack because of the way the holes are alternated which gives you lots of choices and flexibility.

I leave you with Pansy Purple.......

  4. Thanks Dee and Wendy - they really are great colors. I'm so glad you like the designs. :) I think that's an excellent idea Cait - I don't think you can go wrong with the pansy purple. It's a very blue purple, and Very pretty.
