These cabachons were made for a custom order. The lady in question has chosen 2 cabs...with one of the bigger ones and the tubes being 'grabbed' by a dear friend! I was planning to make earring with the tubes...so shall be making some more.
I have been thinking about making lots of different cabs and stocking them on my website (my SADLY neglected website)...will see!
I made this necklace using 3 of my mokume gane pendants...thought it was a good idea!
BUT...i am not liking the way it is sitting. I posted a photo on Flickr...and some of my lovely and very talented contacts gave me some feeback. The general consensus from these ladies...is to use each pendant individually...and I think they are right...there is just too much necklace. Will post some more pics when i get round to making 3 necklaces...LOL!

It is the Sweet home blogger Award for sharing beauty, love and joy. A very talented lady gave me this award...and i am so very honoured to call Sharon of Mana Moon Studios a new friend. Thank you so much for honouring me with this award dear lady.
Soooooooo...now i get to bestow this award on to 5 people.
I am new to blogging...so dont have alot of regular blogs as yet...and i cant give it back to Sharon...so that limits me even more...LOL!!
In no particular order...i bestow this award on:
France Chevalier of A Canuck in Oz
France is an extremely talented and versatile artist. She never ceases to amaze me. Not only that, she is an extremely witty and giving person, whom i now call a friend.
Kathi Gose- Dragonglass
Kathi is such a generous person, with so much knowledge. She is always prepared to help out a fellow clayer. She also shares me love of Tim Tams!!!
Wendy Hearn of Guru Creations
Wendy is a talented glass artist in Australia. I have recently had the honour of working with some of her beautiful cabachons...wow!!! I greatly admire her work.
Melanie Dilday of Clay Happenings
I admire Mel immensely! I admire her commitment to promoting polymer clay in Australia, her generous giving of information and support to all fellow clayers, her wisdom and her beautiful soul.
My very very dear friend Ms Anonymous!!!
She 'gets' me! She makes me laugh and cry...often!!! I love her wit and her passion! I love her happy beads...they never cease to make me smile. She hasnt been around of late...life gets in the way...and i have missed her more than i realised. Perhaps she will pop in more often now...to liven up my days with her witty writing about our profession...teaching!
There...i have bestowed my awards! Thank you to all these wonderful people...for enriching my life!!

Apparently i have to tell 6 things that you dont know about me...hmmm...gawd!!! Could be boring!
Ok here goes:
- I always wanted to study Agriculture...and become a farmer...like my Dad. Instead I became a hairdresser and then a teacher.
- I think always knew i should never have married my now ex-husband.
- I love horses...and rode for years.
- I always have to do the right thing...what is with that??? And beat myself up when i actually dont!!!
- I am a home body...i like staying at home! If i had my way...i would never go out!
- I am not good at relationships. I stuff 'em up...perhaps it comes down to having no faith in myself...not being confident. It that bad that i constantly stress about stuffing up my relationship with the love of my Life!!!
See told ya it would be boring!!! Im not sure who i am tagging! Make it France !!
