I learned all about the different glass patterns that I use when I recently visited my glass guru with a bag of little swatches for him to identify. He obviously had more important things to do and a business to run but I insisted that he give me his attention as I tried to explain the Nana project.
Knowing the names of the patterns is going to help classify the different textures I use in Nana Glasses and be a valuable marketing tool for me. Soon I will be releasing "Sparkle Nana", and "Medium Hammered Nana" on an unsuspecting marketplace. It would have been nice to do this releasing thing on Friday 13th Oct (Nana's 72nd b-day- shivers went up my spine as I was BORN in 1972!) but I couldn't get my packaging sorted out in time. In this day and age who would have thought it would be so difficult to get recycled cardboard boxes made? And with Mr Accordian on the computer 24-7 making his WOFO (Wayne's Orchestra of Found Objects) how does one find the time to put stuff for sale online, fiddle with photoshop and dreamweaver and deal with the clamouring of customers DESPERATE to own some Rebecca Ward jewellery!? Well, most of that is true.
I felt a bit bad buying the last perfect piece of antique blue florentine to break up into jewellery but it tones so well with Bombay sapphire and I wouldn't want it to end up in someone's horrible suburban leadlighting project so I probably did the right thing.
