So excited!



I have not been this excited about something I've made for a long time. These are two of the bowls I completed at MISSA last week. I love them, LOVE LOVE LOVE them! They took quite a bit of work, who knew rounding out a bowl was "so much work". Cryse (instructor) and the students kept laughing at me as I'd often pause and say "boy this is a LOT of work!" I may need a t shirt that says that! 

Figuring out how to rivet on the lily pads so the glass flowers didn't break was a real challenge, but I think I have it figured out now and am really happy with them. I have two more bowls ready for fish and lily pads but my goal this time is to raise up the lily pads!

Your bowls are really pretty! Good job on the rivets. I know it's delicate work setting those rivets without breaking the glass. I made some earrings with riveted carnelian slices and I was a bundle of nerves each time I tapped a rivet!

These are so cool Nicole! I can't wait to see what else you do with them. I love the shirt idea! LOL!

They look worth the effort to me. Very pretty patina.
