It's so nice to hold the long one in my hand, almost like a worry stone. I'm itching to get at least one done before the weekend's over, crossing my fingers it won't be crazy again like the last.

Had an unfortunate accident w/ my diamond shaped number 9 pendant while polishing- it is somewhere in the dark abyss of my studio.. Which reminds me of a joke:
Why is 6 afraid of 7?
Because 7 ate 9!
Maybe it will show up in the light of day tomorrow. One can always hope.

The numbers were free-handed w/ pencil onto the copper clay, this was pretty fun and relaxing..as long as you don't mess up, lol.
Another thing I'm wondering is whether it's a little easier to carve the pieces when the clay has just dried instead of these pieces that have been waiting for weeks to be fired? Hope to get around to testing my theory this afternoon if I have time.
Not sure what it is about using odd numbers, they seem to look better to me for some reason.

There is still lots of finishing to be done, hope to get one piece completed by the weekend.

The beadcaps are 9 mm, Copprclay daps like butta! I'm going to put a couple on a bead and see how the hole corresponds to a 3/32" mandrel. I tried to get a good pic of the bracelet on, but my camera died after only getting one shot..gotta find some more batteries.
