I've been meaning to post the pictures of the items that I've made from the Rings and Things Bead show, back on the first of May. I haven't gotten there yet and I've just recieved my shipment of items to do resin work. I purchased a starter set for making resin items and a small order of Steampunk inspiring watch parts. The kit has great findings for starters; 42 in all, the resin epoxy mixes, stirring sticks, measuring and mixing cups,resin gloss spray and a great book filled with 50 items you can make with resin. I can't wait to get started. I purchased some black, red, silver and gunmetal E beads as well as some cute buddha faces in red and gold, and have some earrings already made. Pictures are soon to come.
So, suffice it to say it's been a Rings and Things kind of week.
Once I get more organized, pictures will come more frequently.
Now the Two steps forward:
I am embarking on a great adventure with a friend/ex-coworker who recently opened her own Photography studio in Evart, Michigan. Teresa Swift-Ekert is one of the most together women I know. She goes above and beyond to make sure people around her are happy and fulfilled. She's offered me a chance to place items in her studio on consignment and teach classes. We are currently working on a collection to place in her store for the Grand Ribbon cutting of Subtle Impact Photography's Hometown Debute.
