And when Monsieur Hibou was done, I had a few beads to embellish his hanging cord. I needed to put them somewhere so they could "dry" after I had glazed them.
There are grapefruit in abundance and so I cut one in half and used the thick skin and pith as a support for the beads to dry. I can still eat the grapefruit as the glaze didn't touch the fruity part. Some of you probably recognize the leaf cane that's on one of the beads, and on the branch that the owl is perched upon. Those canes turn up just at the right moment even if they are 8 or 9 years old!!!!
