What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be careful not to get too close to your piece when firing so you don't disfigure your piece like I did. I remembered what Jenny said in one of her lessons, not an exact quote here but, " There are no mistakes" just new designs" Thank you Jenny because of you I did not give up & throw away my messed up piece, instead I made something "unique" from it, I've made other Charms that came out great!

Awwwm thank you Rosie! It makes me so glad to read that you remembered the "new design direction" comment. We are so hard on ourselves, wanting things to come out a certain way and being hard on ourselves when they don't. It IS important to master the skills (and I'm glad to hear that you have - congrats), but some of the most fun we have making things is when things veer off course somewhere! It looks great - like something ancient and mystical. I'm very fond of the way you combined it with the stones and the wire. Lovely project. Thanks for posting.!

Your Welcome Jenny! Thank You for the nice compliment it means a lot to me :) I tried to post the other charms I made that DID turn out well but for some reason it won't let me same thing happened when I tried to put up a profile photo, so I'll keep trying.

Well, you've inspired me, Rosie. I've been watching the class, and looking at the finished projects. I am feeling really excited, but also a little bit frightened to take the leap. But if this lovely pendant is what a mistake looks like, then I think I can do it;) keep a watch out because I just might dedicate my first project to you. Thanks! Your piece is lovely!!
