I got my confirmation last night, did you?
I'm super excited, being my second year participating. Not sure what to send in the mail as yet though despite having a massive range of beads and findings to hand.
Can't wait to receive the address of who I'm sending to.
Watch this space for more pretties...
I was asked last week to make a tree of life pendant with birthstones of amethyst, pearl, ruby, peridot and diamond. As I can't sort diamond beads I have substituted with diamantes after checking with the buyer.
The pictures really don't do it justice as it sparkles so much from them. I included one large at the top where I created the bail and attached a piece of sparkling cup chain at the base of the roots. I just need to box it, wrap it and include a card explaining all the stones and their birth months :)

We also had a visitor who had bought some clay previously and showed us a manga character he had made using it which was put on display in the window. Doesn't he look cool!
Whilst looking in the window I also saw these adorable little fairies made by a lovely lady named Louise, to match the fairy doors I made for the shop, the pink one even glows in the dark!
To top off the day we even had some delicious hot chocolate of which mine was very happy as the bubbles were multi-coloured :)

Here are the pieces they made. One student didn't finish but I hope they show us when they do...
I had a gentleman on the class who returned Sunday to complete his pendant as he needed to leave early on the Saturday. Here is his piece before he added the bail, I think he did excellently with the spiralling technique. The last picture is the piece I completed as the demo during the class which now sits in the window on display.

Creating this little happy Robin for the Christmas tree. Even though I only had one student due to the flu and such keeping everyone in bed, it was a fun afternoon and the end result was two little robins.
