HotPot weekend workshop in Ee

Once a year a group of friends is having a weekend in Ee (Friesland, The Netherland). Ee, Friesland, The Netherland - holiday house

There is a very old farmer house which is converted to ‘holiday house’ – with a swimming pool, sauna, place to play for children, horses, etc.
I was there few times with them – years ago, and this time I was invited to join them again.

I was so enthusiasts that I was already week earlier – I put incorrect date in my agenda Emoticon met brede lach  When I arrived it was dark, silent and empty. The owner opened the door – surprise even more then me – asking who am I looking for? I looked inside recognising the place but there was no-one. At first I though they all are swimming or went for some play in nearby city… no. I was one weekend too early.

During the stained glass workshop my friends were so inspired that we agreed to have a HotPot workshop to make a jewellery in Ee.

So next week I will pack (again) all pieces of glass, a microwave, all needed tool and other things and head north.
Knowing my friends I expect a lot of creativity and fun. I will place few photos after this workshop.

Meanwhile I am fusing more and more items. It is fun but I feel I am missing sewing. I have to find a balance.

Herewith my last creations – all on Etsy Knipogende emoticon

Something in emerald green… following the trends for 2013. I have glass in this colour – I will make more necklaces and earrings. I like this colour.

HotPot adventure follow up

So today I was planning to finish my jacket and dress – but guess what – I was fusing the glass Knipogende emoticon .

Besides for my dress I needed a buckle so I was thinking of making one from the glass.

The first one I have made was a little too big and my fabric did not went through…

Some of the pendant will have silver-plated bails so it will be possible to hang them on a cord or a chain.

The below set of glass beads will be joined in one necklace.
