Delights from Earth and Sea & "Moonmist"
There were two other items - I'll save them for yet another post, when I've at least got a start on how I'm going to use them.
I forgot to mention that a couple days ago the mail brought to me a purchase I made on Art Fire from glass artist Willow Walker (you can see it here) towards the end of March. The piece is called Moonmist - it's so lovely I can't wait to wear it.
For now, I've put it on a chain made with a 24" length of gold filled hand-made bow link chain from Artbeads that I just added a clasp to, but I think I want to make another chain with some tiny iridescent crystal, faceted bicone beads I have. I've got gold filled eye-pins, and even though they're just an inch and a half long, I'd still be cutting off quite a bit of the pin to make a simple link with just the one 4mm bead - and that cut piece would be too small to use again, I'm afraid. With gold fill being rather pricy, I'm not sure I like the idea of that much scrap left over...I'll probably invest in some gold filled wire and make my own links.
