I signed up with my friend Susan for a fall bead show. That's what the calamity of work is about - all those bits and pieces. I think I told you this. Anyhoo, so I'm making these hearts on a hanging wire. Love them - they are smallish and could even be used for earrings, uh, if there is a matched set in the batch. Although my favorite use for them is at the end of a stack of beads. The last drop, the dangle - the finish. TAHDAH! Take a bow.
So I have all these little hearts and I'm working on more but I wanted something to put them in at the show. I guess I could just go to the dollar store and get a little something. That might actually be the prudent thing to do. Hah, prudent - nope, not working for me - yet - instead I did a pinch pot bowl. I tried really hard not to make it too big. This isn't a huge bead show and although hearts are my thing they aren't everyone's so I didn't want to have to make like a hundred of these hearts so the bowl looks full. LOL, and then sell three. Oh Gosh, I hope I can sell more than three. So far there are 24 of then and that's not enough to fill the bowl. What if I only sell one?
Need to stop that before I hyperventilate or freak out or something.
This is my little bowl - it's still pretty rough. And I've added little ball feet to the bottom. I'm thinking a bright yellow interior and maybe some hearts on the outside but I might leave them the natural color of the bowl and paint around them. But, it needs to be a simple design - it's smallish and I'd like people to notice the hearts and not the bowl. Maybe that dollar store bowl wouldn't be all that bad - NOT!
