I had an excellently productive 4-day weekend! More steampunk-vintage-whatsits (more on those later) as well as a big pile of firepolished glass pendants and earrings. I didn’t take individual photos of the pendants, but here’s a pretty good shot of most of them:
They’re pretty fun to make, lots of organic swirls and such. What I really like about these pendants & the earrings is picking out the colour combos. I’ve got dozens of colours of firepolished glass beads and I can spend hours just picking out fun new ways to put them together. Then of course I have to wrap them but that’s fun too :)
Laird and I bought a new camera on the weekend – a Fuji Finepix HS10. It’s got a 30x zoom! It’s got a 1cm macro! It’s beautiful! While I still need to find the time to do something beyond “auto”, the “auto” setting is doing pretty damn good for me so far. I’ve had to adjust exposure on these, and white balance on some others, but I’m so very happy with it.
