Seashore Soup

A few years ago when on vacation in Florida, I spent some time making some tile molds, which I did use to make some tiles, but haven't had a chance to glaze yet.   From out of nowhere a couple weeks ago I had a thought that I should use them to make some pendants.  Ahh!  Brilliant!  Why didn't I think of that before?  Probably because they're a bit larger than what I'm used to making, but hey, some people probably prefer larger focal beads.

Here's a few bisque pendants I made from white low fire clay. 
And a few made from stoneware clay that haven't been fired yet.
Upcoming Event~
Lori Anderson of Pretty Things hosts a Cup of Bead Soup ~ where every month a different artist sends her a sight unseen batch of beads, and Lori blogs about the process of using those beads to create finished jewelry pieces.  I'm very excited to say I'll be featured in July, and it will be really fun to see what Lori creates with the soup ingredients I send her.  

I'm in the process of painting some of my new beads and pendants to send Lori, and don't even know myself which ones I'll choose.  I'd like to send her some stoneware as well as some low fire white clay pieces. You'll need to check out Lori's July Cup of Bead Soup creations to find out more.
