My Creative World…


From our random pottery and glass shards, I am trying to craft a memory of an ancient place and time, combined with a bit of my imagination. What these simple shards lack in beauty, they make up for with their history. Thinking of the people who made and used them, and what event caused them to be shattered adds a mystery to be explored.

Some of the beads in this one were from Israel also and some were lampworked by me and the unglazed clay ones were made by my friend Steph (aka Vladthebat.)

    Love them! You should make more lampwork beads…
    I drilled a small shard last week, it’s on my necklace now, I found out that if you soak the shards in water, it’s easier to drill them…

    I am so envious of your trip to the archaeological dig… I’m actually currently reading a book on that very subject. While I’m sure it’s a lot of hard work and very little “glamour” involved, I’d still love to be a part of such an experience.

    • Hi Jessie,
      It means a lot to me that you like my blog. I value your comments because you are one of my favorite people. The dig was dirty and hard, but amazingly fun! We didn’t find anything earth shaking, but many lifelong friendships were made. I highly recommend it if you ever get the chance. There are hundreds of digs that are accepting volunteers. Actually, I think they told us there were about 30,000 current digs in Israel. It is a place of the most interesting history in the world.
      Blessings to you!
