Bead and Jewelry Link Love

For your appreciation (applause, please), the Short One's first ceramic plate. Well, okay, I rolled out and cut the clay for him and we consulted on the octopus in the corner (it was supposed to be a frog, but the SO made the artistic decision not to stop with four legs), but the SO did the stamping on this own and chose the color glazes on his own. Although I had to touch up the painting to ensure coverage over the plate, placement of the colors was also pretty much the SO's decision. Not bad for a first try, eh? He's awfully proud of it. He carries it around to show everyone who visits (which makes me nervous, as he has no concept that it will break if dropped and that the pieces could cut him - I am one step behind him when he runs to pick it up each time).

I hope everyone had a great weekend. We did, despite the cold weather around these parts. I just took a kiln-load out, so I hope to have a couple new pieces to show off this week. In the meantime, here are your intriguine bead and jewelry links for the week:
