Toot, toot!

Nicely coinciding with me FINALLY getting some clay under my nails again last night, I received a message via Etsy today from a woman working on a book on jewelry details that wants to include some of my work!!! This is very exciting news!

Got a few pieces started and going last night. One, a custom "Om" pendant for my yoga instructor, who saw one in my Etsy shop and liked it enough to request one with silver accents (the one already in the shop, shown here, is gold) as well as another Om with silver accents to keep on hand for the next silver-Om-lover. Finally began work on a project (two versions so far) which I have been thinking about for ages which also involves yoga/Eastern philosophy, but I'm not ready to talk about it - top secret for now, until I can get it done and list it, which should be soon! Very soon, since I have to get pix to this woman asap for the book!

Last night was my first foray into using Future floor polish as a finish. LOVE IT! Instead of having to wait (and wait, and wait-and-wait-and-wait) for each coat to get good and dry and hard, I can just pop it in the oven and it's done SO FAST! VERY useful in this humid Delaware summer, when nothing wants to dry, ever. I'm still waiting to see how it works if I glaze over the paint and put it in the oven, but it's fine over the baked, transferred clay. My only complaint is its sickeningly sweet, chemical odor. Eeeew. It reminds me of something bad. Like the cherry air freshener they use in the basement of the hospital to mask the morgue.
