A Path Untravelled

There hasn't been much time to do anything for myself lately.  This weekend has been the first days off I've had since January 8th.  Its been a long month.  So its not surprising that I haven't been able to create anything new for my shop.
I had planned on making more heart pendants, and experimenting with some tiny bead embroidery projects. With the new year, I told myself that I would push myself harder than last.  Get more done, explore more creative paths.  So far, I've been lazy.  :P
So when I got an email a week ago for a 10 week flameworking course that I've been trying to get into for easily two years now, I couldn't let it pass by without trying to get in.  I immediately responded and with a change of luck, I got in.  I can't even tell you how thrilled I am to be in this class.  :D
The first class was on Friday last week.  I spent my time that day getting familiar with the torch and the beautiful way the glass would glow and melt.  The way it flowed over the mandrel folding into itself.  It was so completely awesome.

As the weeks pass and I continue on this new path, I hope that it leads to amazing new places.  I can't wait. :)

Something New

Happy New Year everyone! :)  Just thought I would pop in and share something new with everyone.  Here are some pendants I finished and have yet to list in the shop.  I'm debating on finishing them with a cord or ribbon or leaving them as pendants.

blues with wire wrapped top
greens and golds
orange and yellow
Pretty excited to try some new things with this idea and see where it takes me.  Let me know what you think in the comments :)  They should be in the shop in the next few days.
