I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who gave me such lovely comments on my bronze work. Not only on here, but by email and on the forums.
I've had a bit of a lightbulb moment today with regards to some future bronze beads, so I'm hoping to go to the studio tomorrow and see if the idea works! Silver beads aren't always viable to make in sets because of the cost, but the bronze and copper clays are much more viable for sets.
I also have to mull over the idea of going to a bead fair. I've never done this before, so the decision is all about confidence, getting enough stock together etc. Also the nightmare of not selling anything! Of course its good advertising for my classes as well. I'll have to sleep on it!
