Welcome to the studio of Cindy Gimbrone and Studio Saturday!
Here at Studio Saturday, the editors of the Art Bead Scene have talked alot about re-fueling and re-energizing. Like my cohorts, I've spent the summer learning new techniques such as mold making,
bronze metal clay
(pppsssstttt! That's the back of a new pendant and connector series I'll unveil on my blog next week)
and I even drove to Corning to take a week long glass beadmaking class.
Since then, I've been in the studio making sure I'm ready for fall when jewelry designers and crafters start to make their holiday gifts and frost forms on the still green grass.
Reminiscent of that morning frost, I've made the Frost Links. I work to create a "green studio" so the frost on the links is created using a tumbler rather than a chemical etch.
In addition to the colors above, the Frost Links come in a lovely green pear color and a white frost. I love the feel of these so much so, I can't stop making them in every transparent color I can get my hands on!
So, tell me, have you spent time re-newing and re-energizing? Do you create with an eye on making your studio green? Do you feel fall coming? Leave a comment and tell me about what you've been up to and you'll win one of White Frost Links. I look forward to reading your comments!
