Ninety Nine Bottles of Beer on the Wall...

Ninety Nine Bottles of Beer.
Take One Down,
Pass it Around

Wait... take one down, pass it around?

That's all good, but then what?

Why, smash it of course! Then pick through the broken bits, smash some pieces a bit more.

Assemble into cool little treasures.

Fire in the kiln, and...

Voila! The coolest Beer Bottle Pendants!

This one has a tiny piece of green on top of a couple layers of brown.

And this one is all sparkly green!

So.... what do you think???

New Pendant Design

I really love this new design! It started with an actual fern from my garden, crafted into a polymer clay mold. I used that mold to texture the metal clay before firing it in a 1650 degree kiln. A little sanding, a little patina, and lots of polishing... and I'm rewarded with a beautiful, organic pendant.

I almost don't want to part with it!

Handmade Comfort

I recently purchased this great tee from Byrdcall's etsy shop for my husband not too long ago. He loves it so much he asked me to find him some more fun etsy t-shirts. I found several great ones and thought I'd share them with you.

Another winner from Byrdcall...

And one from Live Poultry (what a great name!)...

And this one from Monkeyfish Dezigns (another awesome name!)...

Hmmm, he should be very pleased with these choices. I'm guessing he'll want them all. What do you think? Have any others you'd recommend??
