Following on the fun I had with my swirly mugs I tried to take the same technique to this vase. One thing I’m realizing is that the shellac doesn’t form a complete barrier against the underglaze, but I kind of like it that way.
I love the colours – this was inspired by the white sand and blue green colours of the beaches in Maui – a place I have been wanting to return to so I could take up surfing.
Another random thing are these earrings I made on the weekend:
Mom and I saw these at the Swarovski store at the mall on the weekend and decided to make our own versions. I love them, and they’re a far cry from being $120 a pair ;o)
Genuine Swarovski orchids (I love how they look like trilliums) hanging from sterling silver chain.
In other news my sweater is off the needles and blocking – I’ll try it on as soon as it’s dry, make the buttons this weekend and decide what I’m doing with the neckline (possibly a hoodie)
It’s going to be sunny and 8 degrees in Toronto this weekend, welcome April!
