I Adore Halloween

Tonight I have a little studio open house, it's a monthly event called 'First Fridays.'
The building I work in opens up to the public and all the artist's throw open their doors and let people see that witchcraft we do.
























Since it's almost, almost Halloween I decided to make some holiday earrings to sell at the event.
Here's the kiln fully loaded with spooky headpins.

I used only basic black, two shades of orange glass (orange and creamsicle) and some intense black frit.
The wires are 19gauge blackened steel.
























I even, neurotically, made some special earring cards.
All this for $10 earrings?
Oh, why not.

If you're here in Rochester - this fun event is tonight from 6-9 at the Hungerford Building. 1115 East Main Street. Use door #2 and ask the elevator operator to take you to the 4th floor, I am in studio 402 (rhymes with boo).

P.S. if there are any leftovers from tonight's madness I am going to bring them with me to Java's at the Public Market tomorrow morning. I should drift in around 10:30.
