Channeling My Work

by Libby on September 10, 2008

Sorry, I can’t resist the bad pun.  Here is a selection of Channel Pendants I’ve made recently in my Bead Bazaar production frenzy.  Click the pictures for a full view.

These channel pendants are 2 inches long and approximately 0.25 inch wide.  They are lightweight and fun to wear.  And they are quick and fun to make as well.  I bought a forming block a while ago which has square channels in it as well as the more common round ones, and it takes me just a few minutes to make the metal channels.

I had to take yesterday off from the studio.  I was more than a little burned out and I felt like I was getting sloppy.  The designs were all looking the same and all I was feeling was frazzled.  I’m better today.  The fact that it’s a lovely sunny Fall day might also have something to do with it.

Puns are the stuff of life, honest.

The pendants are simple and elegant, two good combinations. And I hear you about having to sometimes just leave stuff alone before you make a mess of it. It’s a lesson I need to work on more!

I just love those! You should consider selling the empty channels, too. I know at least one person (ahem) who would buy a shorter, fatter version of them.

Libby, they’re beautiful! I love all the new things you’ve been doing. This is one of my favorite pendant shapes. If you want to send me an empty channel, I have something here I’d like to fill it with just for you.
