Being a Student at Bead & Button, Class 2

On Tuesday I joined 24 other students in Robert Dancik's "Concrete: It's Not Just for Sidewalks Anymore" workshop. Again I got into the sawing groove and did a pierced bird on a branch for the reverse of my folded copper box. I set a hand-painted enameled glass tile into the concrete rectangle, then suspended a mabe pearl in the triangle below. I loved the look of the black iron wire echoing the black enamel, as well as the contrast of the roughed up concrete texture with the smooth glass and pearl. I'm going to do more with this concept.
