This little bowl is about 2 inches high. The glaze is black and white acrylic mixed with the Kato liquid. It was so experimental that I didn't really even try with the imprints and texture, but when I was realizing just how much of the kato I would need I wish I'd made it a lot better. I've got a shorter, wider bowl ready to glaze next, so I've been trying to think of something really cool.
Here's another bracelet--I almost kept this one. It is probably my favorite bracelet I've made in that it's the one that most reflects my own jewelry wearing style. It also reminds me of something I had way back in high school that I can't quite remember, and it had snakes on it. There's something about the curve of the hook clasp and the snakeskin design on the button along with the gold and black.
This is one of those instances in which the context of photography allows me to see things that were unnoticed before. I had NO IDEA there were paisleys and the little snakeskin patter on the button before I saw the photos! How could it be? I picked the button out of about 25 similarly sized and shaped ones and of course worked up close with it for a couple hours while making the bracelet. Yet I apparently didn't really 'see' its true self. So odd!
