So Many Ideas, So Little Metal Clay

My new order of Goldie Bronze Clay arrived last week, thank heavens.  And just in time as I had used up the last of my Art Clay Silver and still have so many designs I want to make.

I have 3 or 4 empty jewelry trays and they hold little pictures like these, some with gemstones, and when I have time and metal clay I choose a couple.

My youngest daughter's birthday is coming up, so I made something for her with the last of my Art Clay Silver.

Recently I was asked to donate to the local library's fundraiser.  Some of you know that I have a weak spot for libraries and have donated pieces to others. While I have pieces already made that I could give them, this seemed like a good opportunity to create a new one, just for them.

And as one thing led to another, one piece led to the creation of another, and I've been in my workshop off and on since last Thursday.

On Tuesday I dropped off the finished piece at the Tilton Library.  I think it looks pretty good.  I hope they make a lot of money off of it at auction.  If you're interested, the auction/fundraiser takes place at Chandler's Tavern (Yankee Candle restaurant) on Wednesday, March 6.  It's an evening of wine tasting and micro brews.  Only $25 at the door or $20 if you purchase tickets in advance.  I'm sure they'll have lots of great items to bid on.

As for the birthday gift? I'm pretty happy with it as well.  I hope she likes it.
