View Full Version : Sunday - Lickables! Show us it ALL!

Good morning sleepy heads! Here is what I played with last night.

First the commissioned pieces:

Then I made this goddess for a trade with ChrisF2 and then I started playing with silver and my frits:

Finally some bicone focals with silver, frit, ruby gold, 2 encased 2 not:

Lets see those lickable beauties! I wanna see stained glass, rings, marbles, glasses, goblets, beads, everything! If its made of glass and you made it SHOW IT! Not to make anyone feel left out, all beads are welcome... ;-) porcelein, clay... you get the idea I'm sure...

Hugs from Holland,

Sarah - Beautiful! I love what you're doing with the frit on the bicone! Goddess is gorgeous like always! Is the top left a 'heart of fire', that's really cool! How did you do that?

Here's the puppies I'm so proud of! These sets are my first eBay listings, and the top one got a bid already!! Yay!!! I didn't expect that it would be that quick, or at all, since eBay had been so slow! Believe me, I was a lot more concerned about doing the listing right, I have Inkfrog, and it's great!! Easier than I thought!

Jacinthe - love your goddesses and those bicones
stefanibeads - oooo reds and greens

I received my Corina - Spotlight issue and spent time reading those and then tried some of the things - especially like the effect of the clear base with adventurine chips, covered with silver foil to get this green effect !


11-23-2003, 10:04 AM

[email protected]! Those are my kind of beads - organics! Really pretty! But, you gotta send them to me, I really want to check out the detail more closely, like real close eye level! :evil:

11-23-2003, 10:05 AM
Wow!!!! Today is going to be a great show and tell!

Sarah: You always surprise me with something new! Thos hearts are great, and as usual, your godess is divine. I especially like your bicones though!!

Stefani: I love that green set! I said it in your auction thread, but I'll say it again, I hope your first auctions do wonderfully. Your pictures are nice, and the beads are so terrific. I like how you didn't do the whole green set in one hue. Nice!

Deborah: Wow!! Those are so nice and earthy! Thanks for explaining how you got that fantastic green.

Kenchunk: Great effect!! They look so rich and dreamy! I also admire anyone who makes sets. I'm just not that patient yet! ha ha

I guess this is a bicone day... I got bit by the bicone bug yesterday, and was just tickled that I could get the shape. These are my first real bicones. I used a little silver leaf in the red one...need to experiment more with silver.

11-23-2003, 10:06 AM
Sarah - lovely goddess!
Lisa - I saw you got bids on them. Great start!
dread - I love your bicone. I have the same book and tried same bicone but mine didn't come out like yours. I don't know what went wrong....

I tried Allison Turner's thread "Tutorial:Ruby Gold & Silver Beads" last night and here they are-

Here is an ink blue/black bracelet and earring set I made. The trick is, I finally learned to make small flower beads!! I usually make huge ones and I've got to say, the smaller ones are a lot harder for me!

Great eye candy today!!

Sarah...what can I say, Your goddesses always look so curvy. OooLaLa! And the pendants look great. all the beads are wonderful but my favorite in your collection today is that black and green bicone with the ruby stripe!!! WOW!!
Lisa... That red set is HOT and the green/blue set looks Groovy! :D
Deborah..Yumm. LOVE them!!
Rachel... your bicone shapes are looking good!! That red one is cool! Sorta like sun spots!
kenchunk!!! Great job! Very Medieval!

Here's my tower of beads.

Boy do I need a new camera.

11-23-2003, 11:57 AM
Dread, I really like the organics! Especially the bi-cone one, great shape!

And Allison, cool, cool, cool tower of beads!!!!!

Here's a set by my DH Chris. Another set of his "secret frit" beads. I hope he's writing these recipes down. He keeps a folder with his bead pictures in it, so hopefully he keeps notes on the frits he mixes. This is my favorite combination so far (acutally, it's a tie with another set of secret frit beads he made awhile back)


11-23-2003, 11:59 AM

11-23-2003, 12:08 PM

Here's a blue dot bead I like a lot. ;-)



11-23-2003, 06:05 PM
Wow, just so scrummy each and every.....

Since I am not good at the details on commenting on each and every post really a collective wow, as individual as each entry.... is sent from my heart.... I CAN get detailed with my camera... love that macro function!


and this bead uses opaque orange bullseye, rolled in a couple of layers of silver, opaque orange stringer dots, then melted in.... where's the orange? Really love this effect, so cool....


11-23-2003, 07:37 PM
Great S&T today, everyone!
Thanks :)

11-23-2003, 08:17 PM
....out the WAZOO yesterday. I had two orders, and figured I'd keep going while I was "in the groove".


11-23-2003, 08:44 PM
As always, I want every bead I see on the show and tell threads. You guys are so talented and creative. Laurie

My kids came in this weekend to free me up for some bead time. They also cooked me a wonderful meal! DH is looking a little better. To have skin graft tomorrow. All doctors have agreed they we need to find a doc in the US who is treating this disease agressively. Looking for experts. There has to be one somewhere.

11-23-2003, 09:00 PM
I want to thank everyone for the great comments about my beads. And to tell everyone else who has posted today.
WOWZERS! This ended up being a Show and Tell full of exactly what the title says! Lickables!

LOVELY and AMAZING work everyone!

Hugs from Impressed Holland,

Gorgeous beads today!

Here's a christmas lentil set I finished - debating whether to keep it for myself! It's just perfect for a bracelet, and the transparent green looks much more like a Christmas green once it's wrapped around a wrist. I used some of Val's frits for the silver look.


11-23-2003, 09:31 PM
I am with Sarah Excellent show and tell:clap: :clap: :clap:
And I would like to Thank all comments..
Have A Graet Night!!!!!!!!!!
