More than just bunnies and eggs

A few new beads for looking. I will tell you, the bunny has not been my best friend. She was much harder to make than expected, and I'm still not in love with her. A few bright eggs to add to the Easter theme are also pictured here.

I have also created this cool sculpted glass toggle clasp that I love! It is so versatile, I don't even know which way I like to wear it more. I wish I would have taken more pictures! I sent it off for judging, but I am making more, so more will be posted on this. I was just playing around with an idea and seeing if I could make it and I ended up loving it so much that I sent it away with my other pieces to be judged. Basically its a sculpted lampwork glass toggle clasp and a piece of deer skin leather and is just knotted on the ends to secure your beads. Undo the knot and viola you can change things around..wear it just round, as a dangle or 2 dangles. I still haven't explored all that can be done just by using this toggle. More to come!

There is also this pendant...they are great, just slide them on and off any narrow ended necklace you have or a piece of leather or deer skin suede. I find myself liking these more and more to make. I'm going to work on a few more special ones for Mother's Day, that look like flowers.

And to end the post, my red cardinal. The pictures are not the best..I was in such a hurry to get them packaged that I didn't even think about it till it was almost too late. All of these items have been sent away to Mountain Made in Thomas, WV for artist judging. Crossing my fingers that things go well. If anything, it has been a wonderful journey.
