I would love to find a larger lobster clasp that is not so fiddly to do up. Not sure if I have developed 'fumble fingers' or I don't have the patience. Would love to know what everyone else uses.

I honour the determination and 'stickivity' of Jess, the faith of her sponsors and the courage of her parents in allowing her to follow her dream bravo all!

“Listen to the mustn'ts, child.

Listen to the don'ts.

Listen to the shouldn'ts, the impossibles, the won'ts. 

Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me... 

Anything can happen, child. Anything can be.”

Flash Ya Stash!

Hasn't been a lot of stashing at the Macca household of late. Tight budget and some nasty 10 year old legal stuff happening in the background means I can look but can't touch.

 Then  I see
and the Winner is
What me? - can't be I never win anything.

Mary Ann Carol from Artisan Beads Plus had a giveaway and she picked MEEEEEEE!

Lookie what I got!

Photos do not do these beads justice. They are so smooth to touch and every way you turn them there is a variation in the glaze. She also sent me these . . . 

Some wood fired cubes. These instantly transported me back to the early 70's when I did a bit of pottering around with clay (get it? pottering around?) Everything was stoneware and amazing glazes full of texture and visual interest.
These beads are gorgeous! Smooth and glossy with all kinds of interesting glaze effects going on and in some areas the wood firing has added raku effects.
