So, winter is officially here now on Kangaroo Island and there is that chill in the air when I get up in the mornings. I fight the urge to stay snuggled in bed under the warm layers, cuddled up with the cats……but I also have this really strong urge to get out into the studio and make MORE beads…..these days, even with the torch going and the kiln behind me, it still feels cold in the studio!

Yesterday, I was looking for an owl bead to take a piccie and send off to a friend……couldn’t find one which means they have all gone to new homes… it seemed it was a really good excuse for me to make some owls on the torch and these are the results of yesterday afternoon’s session.

Lampworked Owl Beads

Lots of Owls straight out of the kiln this morning

Now I just have to get them off their mandrels, clean them up and put them on silver wire ready to go to new homes from my Etsy store….. 🙂


Hope you are having a great Sunday and it’s not too cold nor hot wherever you are <3
