Gee, it's 11:55, does this count for Wednesday??? ;)

Anyway, I'm gonna start...
I found this cone end of the darkest transparent green the other day. It's emerald or the darkest teal green I ever saw, and is a wonderful color!!<P>I also usually make big, big beads and have been trying to go smaller, you know, bracelet bead size!? Well, the largest bead in this set is the heart which is just a bit under 1/2" wide and 1/2" tall!!! They are sooo cute and tiny and a bear to make... [for me, the queen of humongo beads!!]


http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/02-Dec-2003/10000-grn4b.jpg I need a name suggestion for these before they go on the "bay" 'Cause I'm running out of name ideas!
Hugs.. let's see your goodies for today!

Jacqui,
Your beads are always so beautiful! Can't help you out with the name though - I'm fresh out - used my last Christmas name for this set:

Both Christmas sets are lovely!!!
But onto the name game! :evil:
Apologies up front - I have been in a good mood for no particular reason today, and it might show:
Pining for these beads?
Holly Jolly Glass-mas?
Decorate Your Wrist (or Neck) This Christmas?
Have Yourself a Little Beady Christmas?
Honey, these beads are on my christmas list?

Ok, I might just be getting silly here... But kudos again to both of you for having enough patience to do sets. Wow.

Ohhhhh, you guys! The Christmas beauties just make me itch to go Christmas shopping. Hmmm, maybe that's because there's only 22 more days and I'm nervous. LOL!
I've been playing with frit, as usual.:p
This set is on a core of avocado with loads of frit.

Christmas beads! Yeah! Love your work guys :>

I seem to have gotten hooked on stripeys and silvered ivory this week lol. I'm still pretty new at this - getting the hang of my new Minor and I keep burning things :evil: I still can't really get the plunged flowers down either :<

Here is my contribution:

Oh my all the Christmas Goodies!!!!

Jacqui great Christmas set, I love it!
Marybeth nice holiday colors, I love the abstraction of using the colors like that.
Jennifer OMG!!! Those fish and that sun are to die for....
Tracy, coolio, what colors are those?
Jenna I love the color combo on the stripe beads.
Lampburke excellent frit fun, for the Corina challenge by chance?
OMG Amy that bead looks LONG, nice job.
Jamie :D I love those boros, nice colors, great organic flow of the lines.

Well I have an offering for the day, it's actually a smaller set for me, mostly basic stuff, but the center bead I really liked....I'm going to be a hoggy and include a pretty close up shot of the middle bead too...

*sigh* Another wonderful S&T today!

The hearts and smileys are for party favors for my DD's birthday party on Sunday. Hearts will be pendants and hung on ribbon, but I'm at a loss for what to do with the smileys..... They are for the boys (ages 3, 4 and 5) . Any ideas???

And a handful of Christmas gifts...probably ornaments.

How about zipper pulls?
Just wire wrap them to a lobster claw clasp.

Amazoo - those are so gorgeous. And I love the party favor beads and little Xmas tree beads. And Kaye - everytime I see your copper green/ink and silver beads I fall in love.

I'm in a blue/green/violet twisted dots mode right now, after taking some time off to go to Vancouver and play:

Ahhhh . . . the Christmas pictures are wonderful!

Josie: those sure look like chocolate. I wouldn't leave them lying around on the table too long.

jellibean: those are GREAT silvered ivories and floral. Nice casing jobs too.

Lampburke: wo-ho. those frits turned out GREAT. Even a metallic shine.

mardi: BEAUTIFUL use of gold leaf.

Amy -- the first set is a wonderful color fest. The oblong is GORGEOUS. You used snow for the core. ;)


macbeads: cool plate. Can't tell from the pic whether those stripes are shiney metallic or a green/lavendar watercolor effect.

Jami: fantastic boros.

Jennifer: Yours blow me away. They are too incredible! I'll be checking eBay for these . . . Isn't there a fish called a clownfish?


Thom: that's a beautiful set, and I love the pinks.

Sarah: all beautiful!

Jennifer: zipper pulls is a great idea!

koregon: the "duded up" one is beautiful. Are those silver dots I see? The ink/copper green/silver combo worked really well.

Amozoo: . . . getting up off the floor. my chair fell over too.

Wired Woman: I love those twisted dots.

Well after all this beauty, here is my incredibly humble haul from this am's kiln:

Yummy goodies everybody!!
Dustin, I have been trying to snag a bead of yours off your site for a while. Every one I pick (same style as in S&T today) is sold.:(
I'm still holding out hope though.:p
