Happy Birthday to Me!!!

This is one of the amazing little letters and cards I got from my children this morning. They all brought tears to my eyes.

This is the present I made for myself!!! I finally stopped blowing up things in my kiln and have had so much fun creating ceramic pendants.

The color is so hard to photograph. The glaze on this pieces has golds, greens, and blues in it with a little crackling to it. It really picks up the colors of what you are wearing.

I fell in love with the Kazuri ceramic beads several years ago and have been wanting to create my own ceramic beads for so long. My husband likes this ideas much better then the 1.5 hour drive to a store in CT that sells the Kazuri beads. It is only a 40 minute drive to the ceramic warehouse for more glazes. They are truly addicting.

They take almost a week to make from beginning to end but so worth it!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, M! I'm so glad to hear that you're back to letting those creative juices flow. I just tried to call you to give you the birthday wishes in person (well, via the phone, anyway) but I didn't even get your voicemail. Hope all is going well in your transition. {{{{{BIG HUGS}}}}}
