Well these started as marbles but I went out of control and they had to become paperweights. The purple one almost got too big for my torch(with the sm5 tip). The pics aren't the best as I'm still a little under the weather and not too ambitious.

This one is 1 /14" wide by 1 3/8" tall.


And this one is 2" tall by 1 3/8" wide.

Not only are they gorgeous, but it amazes me how you could save them and turn them into something else!

Love them!!

I really like them both, but the top one is great. In fact, I kind of prefer that shape to the round marble shape.

Thanks guys,

Don't get me wrong, I love compliments ( who doesn't?) but feel free to give some constructive criticism as well, I know I have a long way to go to get where I want to be and any input is helpful.
I know it's hard for me to give constructive criticism because I've only been at this for about a year and half and would never want anyone to take it the wrong way (and just who does he think he is?:) ) so I may not be able to dish it out so to speak but I can definitely take it. Well I gotta get on dat torch, PEACE!

Well Mike - i hope you're feeling better. I don't have any constructive criticism. I think they are gorgeous! I bet black backdrop and halogen lighting would be stunning. i still can't make a simple flower stay intact without melting when I try to encase! i can not imagine how you get the depth and dimension to your petals and stamens... lovely.:D just lovely!
