Studio Tour Sunday: Busy Busy

 Busy day today...very productive!  I glazed, loaded and fired a kiln, did some shopping, and had a wonderful work session with resin.  I will have some really great PURPLE keys coming to EarthenOxide soon, similar to the amber Collage Key above. I hope to have things to show you this week, but for now I shall leave you with this week's Studio Blog Links: Jewelry Making
Celebrate National Craft Month with jewelry and all kinds of other interesting crafts to try.
