As you can see (well almost) in this picture. They are actually an amazing fuchsia colour and really glitzy. I think with the dichroic glass that I mainly use go great with these new boxes and I am so chuffed to see them on show.
I do get requests for different things and colours and have managed to fulfill most requests, although some are harder than others. When I kiln fire the chosen glass, it quite often changes colour. One thing I do get asked for is the pendants to be hung on silver chain. So, I went away and looked into this idea. What a choice I found, chains of all types, sizes, designs and the cost of these are so expensive for quality I would have to more than double the price of the ten pound they sell for now. As I see it, these are already hung on a beautifully soft velvet type thick cord with nickel free clasps and the addition of a silver chain would only increase the price and would not make them anymore beautiful than they already are. Also, most people have a spare chain in their jewellery box at home and it's quite easy to swap the cord over.
Talking about showing off my designs I just recently took part in the national open farm event at Roots Farm, East Roundton, Northallerton . It was a great day with loads going on from helicopter rides to hog roasts. The sun shone and people kept coming, the craft market was bustling with people from all walks of life. I will definitely support the event again as all the entrance and stall fee's were donated to a charity for orphaned and sick children in Uganda.
