New beads and bronze clay

Mid week I realised I needed to make a start on some new work for a gallery I show in.  I am now thinking about the colours of later Spring and early Summer, even though it is still quite a long way off judging by the state of my own garden.  I have experimented with a wider variety of colours and produced a varied selection of juicy looking beads (let me know what you think?)

I have also begun my first experiments with bronze clay.  I was warned by friends who know I don't like getting messy that I may not enjoy the experience and have to say I didn't like the colour of my hands!  It is not at all like working with art clay silver and I haven't seen the results yet as my first experiments are still in the kiln - and will be for quite a while as the heating schedule is also much longer than the silver.  Here are the first pieces still wet though..... I will just have to wait and see how they fire.
