Back in the Saddle

I was in a bit of a funk last week and got absolutely nothing done. Wahhhh. Okay. Those are enough tears. Especially since it's only mid morning and I've finished one necklace and am 3/4 through another one. Maybe I'll have some new things for the Contemporary Crafts Market in November after all.

Blue chalcedony, quartz and aquamarine on the chain and pearls to come. Gotta take a trip downtown.

Black star sapphire and pearls. Might have to keep this one. There's a small flaw on the stone.

I might have been in that funk because my beloved kiln is in sad shape. I might need a new muffle. Must get off the computer and call Paragon. They were so nice when I called with my problem. I sent off a million (or maybe only 10) pictures and Paragon will research it and tell me if there's something I can do on my end or if the kiln will have to be sent back to the factory. And if that's the case - do I do it or simply buy a new kiln (which I can ill afford). After the new part charge, the labor charge and the shipping charge it might run to around $400-500 bucks!!! Damn thing is only 4 years old. Say a little prayer for me won't you?

Praying for you....
beautiful things...
and for the record?
I would love that last piece precisely because there is a flaw in it...
Enjoy the day, Lora!

Hope your Kiln gets better soon!
Keep the beautiful pendant, not because it has a flaw, but because it's gorgeous :)

I love both the pendants. What gauge wire is that where the pearls will go?

If it will cost that much to fix the old kiln, I say get a new one.

Just my 2¢
