New findings and a little Majma Dance break.

It's been a couple of weeks and quite a lot has happened as always!
Firstly my Ebay test didn't go to plan and my lovely comb didn't sell although it did get some watchers. So I think I'll stick to my steady stream of word of mouth/event tactics.
I had a little break from making wedding accessories and jewellery last week and decided to make some costume jewellery earrings. Recently it seems that antique brass and black gunmetal have become quite popular so I ordered some new goodies and made the costume earrings below using black gunmetal findings.

So I had a long weekend off and went to the spiritual den of Glastonbury for 3 nights with some of my close girl friends. We attended the Majma Dance Festival which is an annual event held by bellydancer Raheesha and the Desert Divas. It is a great place to learn some new dancing skills as they hold all sorts of workshops over the weekend. I tried Zambra, Tribal and Rajastan Gypsie dancing to name a few.I also drank rather a lot of wine so climbing the Tor Monday morning was quite painful!
Below is a picture of Nikki and I at the Friday night show.

Having a break always sets your creative juices going again so I am back and have lots of ideas. So many I had to draw a spider diagram to get my head straight! Glass club always adds in more ideas. Last night I was trying to do an implosion pendant - (You Tube it they look awesome!) and also remembered that I get my new kiln next week! How exciting! In light of my new arrival I ordered some yummy fusing glass today, Warm Glass have a 30% off sale so it would have been rude not to. So watch out for even wackier creations :)
So it is almost the weekend again and I'm going to have dinner with friends then crack on with some lovely comissions I have to make. Have a lovely weekend and lets hope the sun shines - I need to get and tidy the garden a bit as well! E x
