The Glass tour (Holdman Studios)

I didn't take as many photos as I wanted to because this is a working studio and some projects are hush hush until they are mounted in place in their prospective buildings.  But it was so neat to see stain glass windows that will placed in LDS temples and other buildings too before they get placed there.  So lovely and so many pieces they are amazing works of art all of them.

Chainmaille bracelets

Remember a while back I went to visit my sister in law and she and I played with chain mail.  While visiting I made a belt for her husband.  She was making some other chainmaille bracelets at that time for her mother-in- law and another sister-in- law.  She said I could post these so I am I think she did a great job and she took pretty good photos too.  She did such a good job I wanted to post these here.  Hard to believe a bunch of jump rings and some crystals can make those but so cool.

Merry Christmas

I had a child Christmas performance to go to last week Friday and during that performance I made "an ornament" at least that is what the author calls the pattern .

But to me unless you have one humongous tree this is way to big for an ornament.  On Sunday two of my daughters had holly berry hair-clip to wear to church.  I didn't have time to finish the third ( it would take several hours) but I saw that triangle /coaster/ doily / ornament/ thing sitting where I had been working on it.  I thought you know might make an interesting hat/headband.
