Playing with my Beads

I have been having a great time playing with my beads making bracelets. I am using copper wire for linking together the beads and a larger gauge that I bang on with my little hammer and anvil to make the clasps. I also have been using some lovely glass beads that I got in a mix, I think they look nice with my ceramic beads and charms. So this is what I am doing in my evenings after Rakuing all day!

More Raku Pictures

More Raku

Here is Saturdays batch of Raku. Wow it has been so much fun experimenting with the different glazes. I am very pleased with the results and I think this is the direction I am going to go with my ceramics. I am working so many new designs at the moment that I can't wait to get them all out. Right now I am working on more hearts and a some ocean themed beads. I have been hand working all of them so none are the same.
I have more pictures!
