Pictured to the right is another owl, this one done with a combination of Double Helix Aion 2, over a dark transparent teal. Very shimmery in real life, though I do think I captured a bit of it rather well in the photograph. He needs a name, so I'll have to put on my thinking cap.
The owl names will have to wait until I finish with my latest article for Soda Lime Times, September 2012 issue, due to be published August 15th. You're in for a treat I'm sure, Diane Woodall has put out a fabulous issue every month since the magazine began.
Finally new pictures, after being without a camera for what seems like forever. And mighty nice pictures might I be so humble to say. Thanks to a nice photography tutorial by Kevan Moran Aponte, available on her Etsy page, Dancing Star Beads. While these are my first few photographs following the tutorial, I only expect my skills to improve as I learn my camera's own nuances. Pictured left is one of the owls I have been addicted to making as of late. He is made with Double Helix silver glass, with murrini from Hayley Tsang Slather. I felt he needed a name, and Nigel seems to suit him. Whatdaya think?
Pictured left is an example bead from one of the tutorials I review. A little dark, but I was waiting patiently for Kish to bring home my gradient background for my photo set-up (which he forgot anyways, haha!).
I'm pushing it close on the deadline, and I hate doing that. With some personal health issues and trying to prepare for my demo THIS Friday, I've been a smidge frazzled. That's right, I'm doing a demo for the first time in over a year.
Any questions, feel free to drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I hope to see you Friday!
