Am I there yet? Not anywhere near finished exploring, lol
For photos and more read on...
A flowery bouquet of tiles waiting to be turned into pendants, earrings and mirror compact...
This one is quite dark, but has a lot of depth and colors shift when held at different angles...The one above on the right hand side was rolled flat, but I like that effect also.
I've been getting some nice emails and reviews. Thank you for the kind words, they've been brightening this whole week, even with the warmth of plenty of sunshine. Some people have the best sense of humor and thought I'd share this email (with permission of course):
"Tina, I need to find a 12 step meeting to help me stop doing the shimmering batik thing. Not even sure where I could go to look for one. I made some things out of it yesterday and the day before. I took a couple to my knit and crochet club this morning. One of the ladies grabbed my favorite piece and wouldn't let it go. I finally asked her if she was going to give it up and she said no. I told her it needed a couple more coats of Magic-Glos. She asked if I could put something on it so she could hang it from a chain but she didn't want me to wire wrap it, she just wanted it like it was. You created a monster or two. Thank you."
Here are a few more things I finished today...ok...have to admit...red, black and white are not my ideal color choices and I tend to avoid them, but this is part of a challenge that I took on, to see if I could make it work. I actually like them in person, lol. With all these bracelets happening...perhaps I should change my blog to "A bracelet or two a day". Various sizes and I'm going to play with some other shapes, but they are all strung on elastic, and so easy to put on.
And here are some tiles by B-Lee Kreations...you can visit her blog at http://bleekreations.blogspot.com/
Aren't these beautiful, you can even see the mica shimmer...

Have a great weekend!
