Show & Tell Saturday Aug 28

Hey, can this be right? No S&T today? This is my first time ever starting one! How fun!

OK, here is another new thing. I am having so much fun with these buttons and I am getting really excited about sewing. I am researching sewing machines, I have found some great funky jacket patterns, and I am starting to drool over fabric. All in order to use these handmade buttons! Here are the rest of the pictures of new designs from my new little button catalog.

These are lovely! I particularly like the dragonfly and the left hand face.

Re: Show & Tell Saturday Aug 28

Melanie, I love them all. I just can't pick a favorite! I think the color also enhances the earthy feeling. Great job

Mary, not only do I like the use of frit, I also love the shape. The angular lines give it an added dimension.

Here's one from me. I just can't get myself in the fall color mood yet. Lampwork created by WC's GinaJ (I love her stuff).

Re: Show & Tell Saturday Aug 28

Well, I've been in a big creative funk for weeks.
I made a couple of pieces for the Women Soaring Pilots Assn. Their logo is a glider and the pair-of-birds "W" (for women). I also made a really fugly reversible pendant of Brazilian agate and peridot. I don't know why I"m posting it. Must be the bourbon talkin'. (The photo even stinks. You can't see the bands in the agate or the green of the peridot!) Oh well, I had fun!

Re: Show & Tell Saturday Aug 28

Hi everyone!

Mary I love that plate/bowl/thing!!!! great shape and design with the frit!

Kit, which one were you saying was ugly? I hope it was the first one because that is the one I like the best - I think it would look really great on a black leather cord. Hope your block is lifting or lifted. Blocks suck.

gb-beads - very pretty necklace of your daughters!

Andee, you can't have run out of ideas!!! Join my freeform challenge then before you get bored.

Melanie, I love all your beads - they are all great.

Nothing from me AGAIN... maybe soon...

Pam

Genie - your DD made a gorgeous necklace!

Kit - nice stuff!

Pam - don't worry, I spent some time at the torch so I could be productive again today! As for your challenge - freeform isn't really my cup of tea, soz... Otherwise I would join, of course!
