The Journey of an Owl

Today has flown by! Probably because I have been on the torch most of the day. Β It has been the perfect day for it…..it is 71 here with a brisk breeze, so having the toasty kiln on & sitting by a torch feels good for a change!
(Yes in the Bahamas we consider 71 cool!)
I told you in my last post that I had the pleasure of having Cassie, from Glass Beadle, here to help me with my bead making.
When she came I had a list of beads I wanted to learn how to make. An owl was on that list, but the three days went by so quickly that we never got to it.
I wasn’t worried, since she had taught me some great skills with sculpting so I figured I could figure it out on my own.
That little owl took several tries…..four to be exact….
Just for fun I thought I would share the photos with you.
The very first one broke – after the annealing, while I was cleaning him!! I was devastated!



It took me a few weeks to try again…..so here are Mr Two & Mr Three….
They were better, but still needed some work to get rid of the wonkiness!



And then success today!!! WOOHOO!!
I am pretty proud of this little guy!



Sorry for the terrible photo, but I couldn’t wait to share him with you!
Tomorrow he will become a pendant.
Hope everyone is having a wonderful week!
