Saturday beads


Ahhh the school week is over. It's been a long haul in Artville, getting lots of students on task, working projects, learning the art room rules. This year has been especially interesting since we have over 100 new students in our school. Where did they come from?
So there's been a bit of stress involved with finding seats, making seating charts, and setting up lessons for larger classes. My goal is to make the class a learning experience that will help kids enjoy art as a lifetime skill.
In the meantime, making beads has taken a back seat for about a week or so. I had an order to match some beads in the turquoise and ivory set that was listed in my Etsy shop. So there are many extras, since I just kept making beads with the same glass. Kind of a Zen like state and it does totally make me relax, staring into the flame (with special glasses on!) and just thinking of shaping the glass and melting to the optimal state.
So here is another set with my favorite glass combination. in my Etsy shop!
Have a great weekend!
