View Full Version : Wonky or Cool????

I know the question is silly, but I'm serious. I made this focal today, which started out as a hollow round bead, collapsed and then morphed into this freeform pendant. I vote for cool, i love the way it looks, and feels. Lauscha glass: Base olive green, silvered ivory and purple dots, encased in clear. But my vote doesn't really count since I made it....sooooo, what do you think? Wonky or Cool? And be honest, that's what I'm counting on!


This is another focal I made too, my first barrel!!!! Yipee! Lauscha peach with silver foil and opal white stripes. Reminds me of champagne...

Amber, I like it- I'm rather partial to Lauscha olive, anyway, and the purple and SI really make it look great! It would have made a great hollow, but I REALLY like the ruffly pendant it turned out to be. It just goes to show that no matter what goes wrong, there's probably something right in there anyway :D


Wait a minute.. you were encasing a hollow bead??? Good grief, I wouldn't even think to try that, I'm chicken! You go girl!!

Amber - no doubt! It's cool! And don't you just love that Lauscha peach?!?!? Great barrel bead!

Hmmm....I like the barrel one--nice form and design!

I definitely vote, WAY COOL.

Make a necklace with that as a focal and you'll have to slap hands away from your chest. :p People will want to touch that one.

Your barrel is beautiful too. Pretty colors.

I worship at the altar of random asymmetry - so I think that freeform bead is mighty cool!!!!!

Oh, Amber, that is COOL!http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/18-Mar-2003/15625-jawdrop.gif Now, can you do it on purpose?

Amber, it is definitely cool. In my opinion, for me anyway, freeform is very difficult to do well. You absolutely have it here.

I love the champagne bead as well. Beads the color of champagne are my all time favorite. This one is a hit, too.

thanks so much guys...for all your wonderful comments. i really think i can make it happen on purpose, do you think they would sell well? the hole on the freeform is horizontal about 3/4 of the way up. in other words, it would hang lower on the bottom. i think i'm gonna make more, just cuz i like it so much, and i have to keep that one for myself!
