Color!





These are the finished ornaments! They seemed to be well received and added a punch of color to my display! They are now over at the Made In Ojai store!

The new hand torch arrived on Friday but I haven't had a chance to bust it out of the box and take it for a test drive! Any words of wisdom on the mini butane torches would be greatly appreciated! I don't want to have a "You'll put your eye out!" moment here! I did of course read the instructions and safety information...



I also had the room to fire up some newish beads in a newish color. They look very mermaidy to me. I'm all about the made up words today. Go right brain! Go right brain!

Thank you SueBeads! Every year we have a new ornament for our family and friends. This year I had them done fast enough to offer at the local craft fair!

I could definitely see those ornaments on a chain to wear as a necklace... Love the new beads- remind me of the ocean..

I so love the beads! They make me sad that I am SO far away from Ojai - I would love some of the Joy ornaments/beads :o)

Love the last heart - the glaze colour on the clay body is great. The beads are really lovely and I am even further away from Ojai!

I love the ornaments, but I'm seeing them as jewelry components!

I would tell you how much I love those ornaments but I died from the beauty.

Gaea said...

Joelle! That is no bueno! You simply can not enjoy an ornament when you are dead! XO2U

Hi Carol B,
I may have to rethink these as smaller. They feel too large (4ish inches) for jewelry. Or, hey! Go bold!

The "Joy" ornaments are very cute and colorful, lovely work!
