I made these pendants in the soldering class I took at Dava Beads.  I actually made about 9 pendants in total, but for some reason I haven’t taken pictures of the other pendants yet.  The pendant in the middle went to my kiln partner who owns the Funky Door Cafe.  The pendant on the left went to my mom and the pendant on the right went to a very good friend.  For those, I hand drew the Celtic knots on shrinky...

Etsy Store Update!


Posted on Jan 15, 2008

Finally our Etsy store has been updated! If you look over to the right hand side of my blog, you will see some new pendants.  I put up 24 pendants for sale.  The hardest thing about updating our site was getting pictures taken.    For Christmas, my husband bought me this portable studio setup.  Sunday was the first time that I used it.  It was super easy to set up.  I will definitely need practice to...

My mom used to make Russian Tea when I was a kid.  It’s a warm citrus drink that is great in the winter.  Having fond memories of this, I figured it would make a good Christmas gift for my cousin.  It’s very easy to make.  The batch was big enough to have a present for my cousin, father-in-law and for my husband.  I had forgotten how tasty this stuff...
