At the moment I totally enjoy to create artwork for my brand new art shop on Etsy!
ok, it will be my brand new art shop in September 2014! (opening date: 1. September)
I have done those "silver pictures" since many years from time to time, and I also love to create jewelry, using similar techniques, but now I decided to offer some of these miniatures here in a separate shop, cause it would not fit my beadwork.
The idea of offering a limited edition of "wall silver" (Wandsilber ! ) here on etsy is something I ´ve thought about for some time, but now the time has come to give it a try ....

Here are some problems with the oxblood tomatoes.
maybe it was not a good idea to try this tomato variety without having lots of tomato experiences.
I grew 4 different tomato varieties this year and no problems at all, except the oxblood.
They are doing well, but the leaves on top began to wither....ok let´s wait and see... my mantra regarding gardening problems...
And now to some beads I got.
They look wonderful and I´m always in search of silver glass beads!
unfortunately they often are not abrasion proof or light resistant.
But these are looking great and first tests are promisingly, so I will make some stress tests
like leaving them on a window sill outside in the sun, for months...and other cruelties..
Of course it can be advisable if beads are eminently interesting, to use more sensitive ones, but I have to know it for giving care instructions.
Crafting a sphere and wearing it for some time on a necklace is also a good testing opportunity.
By the way, one of the beads that passed through a 100% successful stress test are these old red beads above!
after some time I will come back with the results for the silver charlottes.
