Pearl Flowers and Orange Tigers

Have finshed a long stem pearl flower pendant.  Just have the gorgeous pealrls left to set.

My friend Tracy brought back four amazing handmade glass pieces from Venice.  The technique is a series of layers with multiple firings and then an abstract faceting of the surfaces.  I've almost never seen glass like this before.  They're like paintings that you can look into.  I'm really looking forward to designing the settings for three of them.

Fine polishing mostly done.  I'll be working on the black silver and it's very subtle polishing next.  Have also completely finished a group of bird pendants and pearl and siver necklaces.

And I figured out how to make my bronze tiger orange!

Mood:  Working way too much.
