Thank goodness I save my garbage!

Don’t panic, I don’t save my actual gross kitchen garbage – but I do save for a bit the garbage pieces of glass that occur when I’m cutting a particular shape out of a bigger size piece.

This happened a lot while I was working on the pendants and there was quite a large garbage pile being generated on the table.  My husband is a bit of a neat freak, and though he tries to leave my workroom alone, he made some comments about the mess and noted that it had been there for some time.  I ignored the comments, politely of course, and thank goodness I did – otherwise I wouldn’t have come up with this:

Peach and Black Triangle

I really love it, yes it is uber simple, but that craggy little slightly curved bit of the peachy color fit just right in the bezel and the black around it set it off perfect.  It reminds me of a line from an old Prince song – “color you peach and black, color me taken aback”, because that’s how I felt after seeing it come to life, a little taken aback!  The husband really liked this one too – after getting some oohs and ahhs, I told him it was born from the garbage pile and said if I’d listened to his request to clean it up, such beauty never would have been created.  😉   He was slightly saddened to know that my desire to save random bits of stuff was reinforced that day.

In all seriousness though – I really was happy I’d not cleaned up the garbage pieces, it wasn’t just this little peach/black one that came out of the garbage but several others pictured below too.  Sometimes inspiration comes from bits that didn’t seem to be worth much at one point, they’re just waiting for their moment I guess.

    These are all so beautiful. When are you going to price them, and where can we purchase them?
    I am glad you saved your garbage, too!
