Doing Wheelies

Things have been pretty quite at the Penguin Colony....colony - what a poor name for a group of amazing birds.  After all, there are very imaginative names given to groups of birds. Murders of Crows, Parliament of Owls, Unkindness of Ravens, Ostentation of Peacocks, Convocations of Eagles....why even a group of ducks has the interesting identification of being refered to as a Paddling when in the water.  I am thinking that a group of Penguins needs a more festive name, after all they are always well dressed. What about a Tuxedo of Penguins, or a Parade of Penguins ... when the the water they could be a Flight of Penguins.

But I digress... I have not had much time to create lately.  Summer is finally here and spending time outside is taking precedence over clay.  Sunshine is rare here and I want to savor every moment of it I can.

I did get a chance to experiment a little with an idea I had. They did not turn out to match exactly what I had in mind, but I was not too unhappy with them.  Still working out exactly how to turn them into jewelery.

Big dots on right, smaller dots on left. Not sure yet which I like best.

Prototype of an earring type I am working on using my wheelie beads.

  1. I just love these and the earring design is great. How will you decide on holes for the top two beads or will they be earrings as well? I think you should make quite a few of each size dot myself.
