I hope you all had a nice Easter, even though the weather had changed. I spent a few days in Brixham, we were very lucky and didn't have any rain, so able to go on loads of walks. This is over looking the bay, next to Fishcombe Bay.
It reminds me that we have some lovely coastline in our Country.
Then last weekend I went to Flame Off with a friend, for a couple of days. The best way I can explain it, is a lampworkers convention. So much to see, glass to buy and try, tools and gadgets, frit and stringers, demonstrations and meeting old and new friends. I loved it, even if my bank balance didn't :)
I bought a fantastic pendant by Anouk Jasper, who I have also had the pleasure of doing one of her courses.
Loads of glass and a couple of presses and rollers, all I am sure I really needed !
Fantasic demo by Manda from Mango Beads. Pati Walton from U.S.A, Claudia Trimbur-Pagel from France with amazing stringer work and very different look to her beads.Emma Mackintosh with seahorses.
There was a large area to try out the torches and buy kilns and set ups.
Then it is back home and get down to doing some work.
New items in my Etsy shop.
This set of Ocean Focals, which I really loved making. A new Goddess and a Large BHB cored Pendent.
I will try not to leave it so long to blog, next time. bye for now.
