I just spent about 30minutes writing and lost all my info!
This is not a good thing ERR!
Anyways last night I was checking out my blog to see if anyone was looking at it, and I noticed I had a lot more views than normal. I thought this was strange as I only have a few regular followers and they can only checkout my blog so many times.
Then I received an e-mail from Fanciful saying she was adding a link in her blog to mine, okay now I know why I was receiving extra views Lol!
Thanks Fanci for doing that.♥
Anyways came across a couple of old pottery beads I made about 15yrs ago. I guess these beads are almost vintage Lol!
I had this great idea back then that I was going to make jewelry with my own pendants and beads . I have always tried to figure things out on my own and thought making beads will be easy. Well they were not as easy to make as I thought. I also wanted high fired beads with smaller holes so I decided to fire them on a nichrome wire and they would turn out great! to easy! Well my beads were not round like I wanted but I could live with that as I new I would get better at making them in time. But when I opened the kiln and the beads were all stuck to the bottom of the shelf that was a real bummer! Tried a few different things and wasn't having any better results. Back then I had no computer and there wern't any books on high fired beads. I ended up ordering a bead rack from our only supplier in B.C. and when I received it I realized I could only make large hole fired beads so I just put it to the side.
My son wasn't even 2yrs old back then and I had a lot of stuff going on and decided I would just stick to making pots for now and come back to the beads later. ( I think I made the right choice)
Try not to laugh to hard as these beads are really bad!
