The weather here in NC during the month of August is always hot and humid and often times, my bead production is slower than usual. I run an ogygen concentrator rather than pure oxygen and the humidity in my studio seems to effect the oxy output in a negative manner. I guess if I’m to go through a big mess, right now is the best time. My studio is MISERABLE a place to be anyway.
I wanted to make a set of peacock beads for ebay but most of the ones I’ve made in the past few days really aren’t so pleasing. This is related to my oxyconn issue. I’m using silvered glass by Double Helix and it’s not so crazy about my sad output of oxygen. I did yield two very nice beads though, so instead of keeping them for a set, I made a bangle and mini pendant. This is especially good for my soul right now, because it allows me to spend some of my creative energy that would otherwise be bottled up and spewed in a volcanic emotional outburst.
This piece is one of my most recent favorites, because I love the soft aquatic blues and shimmering gold.
Alrightythen! Now that I’ve spent half my day photographing and listing three measly little pieces of work, I’m going to retire to my dungeon to make more beads. Hope it’s cooler where you are!!!
