The photo shows a little cookie tray/dessert plate, a tea bag holder and pie server. We are still working on the matching tea pot. The good news is that after paying for lessons for five years, they are now free for me! I do love that!
This is the photo of the necklace and bracelet and earring set for the auction. The silver is clean and in real life it sparkles, which really sets off the pieces. I use Italian glass (called effetre) that comes in sticks about the width of a pencil. I melt the glass over a specially designed glass torch (I use a Bobcat from Glass Torch Technolgies) and wind the glass into whatever shapes I want. For this set I used black and white as the color scheme as it is likely to be attractive to a large percentage of women and can be worn with pretty much whatever. The necklace is 18 inches.
So far today is a better day. The kids are still at school, and I have snacks to feed the hungry beasts when they come home. I still need to go to the grocery though and see what jumps into my cart for dinner.
