New Year, New Art Projects

Wow! It has been a long time since I have had time to do any art!

I tore a tendon in my elbow, and have not been able to use my dominant hand, so no art. Plus with the holidays, it gets fairly busy at our house.

I am taking a little break from Encaustics right now. I am working on some new beads, and made a necklace with some of them. I am taking a bracelet class from my friend Lisa in March, and wanted to have some beads ready before class.

It does not show in the pictures well, but these beads are very luminous. They have a matte finish, but can be polished as well. I prefer a matte finish, so I left them alone.
