Well, I don't know what button I just pushed, but I am getting two titles for the price of one! Anyway, I thought I would tell everyone about this cool experimental class I am taking with Sylvie Landsdowne. She is a great lampworker that I meet when we both took a lampworking class with Leah Fairbanks and Kim Obisin back in 92 or 93...maybe even 94.. somewhere around then. Anyway, she went on to do lampworking and after a friend of mine tried to torch off my hair, I decided to stay with seed bead work.
Sylvie has designed a series of 8 assignments that we know nothing about until Monday afternoon, and then we have one week to make a bead or centerpiece in metal clay and then post a photo of it to discuss with the other artists in the group. I am way excited about my assignment and if it comes out great, then I may post the photo....until then, here are some photos of my experimental pieces. See if you can figure out what I did! I hope you like them, Kelly
