Ceramic pendants WOYWW

Good morning, I nearly forgot it was Wednesday today so I’m sitting here wondering what I have to show you this morning as I’m still working on the porcelain that I started painting last Wednesday( don’t want to bore you with it), it’s nearly done though so I will be moving onto glass fusing next week.

I had a custom order for a ceramic pendant this week, you can’t just make one pendant, you have to make a kiln load which takes a looooooong time. Then you have to glaze enough to make another firing worth while, but I didn’t glaze everything, that would have been an awful lot of copper / green pendants. And finally there was a third firing to add copper lustre, which, (and I hope you agree) makes the pendants sing.

My customer has chosen the one she wants, the rest will find their way into my Etsy shop, and once I have stocked up the gallery I will be glazing more pendants and beads in other colours. It’s a lot of fun and makes me feel like a big kid.

Which one is your favourite?

    Nothing so interesting or clever at my desk! It is a long term way of earning money isn’t it, you have to make and sell a kiln full to satisfy one custom order? It’s definitely about a love for what you do! I love the copper additions, wow. So my faces are 2,7 and 13 . it’s fascinating to know what everyone likes..we have such differences!

    Ohhh, hard to choose from all these wonderful pendants but nr. 6 and 11 really ‘sing to me’… gorgeous colours too! Happy woyww and a warm hug (high temperatures right now overhere) from Holland, Marit #36

    7, 8, 14, 15 but gosh, too hard to choose. I just love that mint color and the detail is lovely. Happy WOYWW (a couple of days late) from Laura #48 [http://bookworm.typepad.com/]

    Wow! They are all gorgeous. I couldn’t really choose one. I like 1, 5 and 15. I love the colour turqoise or teal.
    Thanks for visiting me earlier this week.
    Sorry I’m so late in commenting, but we have been away for a few days.
    Have a good week,
