Pardon me for having a senior moment, I put these in yesterday's Nite Owl so I'm doing it over. Yesterday's thread is quickly going down the pipe anyway. :p

bead measures 20mm X 22mm.

Rita, you made that many beads in one night? That is impressive! I like the flowers, especially the white and green and from the top, I am wishing for a closer look. Especially the patterned blue. The color combo of red and pink really grabs the eye.

BabsW- beautiful florals and the way they are wired and strung really shows them off.

Trey - I love them! Makes me think of snakeskin (which is probably why it was titled thusly.) Very lovely set of beads!

Here's mine from last night and only have a picture because he's off to the show. What if someone adopts him? I will never see him again......sniff. Moretti and peculiar.
And snowflakes - same stuff. Lots of clear and lots of dots and LOTS of time.

Thanks for looking and I am liking this night-time Snow & Tell idea!

Now, back to work before the whip-cracking man catches me on the computer.....

I wanted to comment on everybody's beads

Rita- my dear sweet Rita, you must have been in my mind last night for I swear it is my beads you have pic of. Now Now you naughty girl, how did you get my beads out of your kiln?

Trey- Love the colors. Are you willing to share?

Barbara- Glad you posted them again, I must have missed them yesterday. Beautiful Heart, but the first one is to die for the flowers actually seem to float.

Booger- scarry as usual. Snowflakes are very unique.. I really like them..trying to figure out how you did that. But then again I can't figure out how you do many things.

Catnie- I am guessing it is dicro. They are beautiful! and the neat thing is you can tell that in person in good lighting they are amazing, the colors are so vivid.

Beautful Beads everyone, I love this nightowl post,

Rita, lots of terrific beads, but I'm really liking the flowers.

Traci, very nice set.

Very pretty flowers, Barbara. I especally like the white bead.

Ms. Booger, the faces you do are so amazing, sometimes frightening, but always unique.

Linnea, sparkly is always good. :)

Shawn, beautiful colors.

Here are a couple of characters and a cross. All made with Bullseye glass. I love heating the black till it spreads, like on the cross. It's great to watch the effect.

My first Night Owl S&T!! What a great idea.
Ms Booger, wow those eyes! And I agree with you on Rita's production and I love the flowers.
Linnea, beautiful, is that dichroic(spelling?)?
Barbara, great heart!
Shawn, what vibrant color!!
Tracy, cool penguin (no pun!)
Here are some lentil shaped beads I've been working on...

I love your cross, how it's all elongated and tall... very dignified... and yes, I love the black and colors... very nice cross! :)

Okay, total roundup here..

Rita - LOVE 'em... the long, the fat, the organic, the flowers... all... I really like how you do your flowers. :)

Trey - very nice set...what colors did you use? I'm guessing maybe ivory and mosaic green of some sort, but I've been known to be wrong! Reduction frit? *shrugs* anyway, very nice

Barbara - Quite lovely... your two beads remind me of a painting, particularly the bottom one... oil or watercolor, slightly abstract but very identifiable.

Booger - I'll go run and hide under my bed now. ;) Very good face though, and I LOVE the snowflakes... you did a magnif job on 'em.

Cathie - Gorgeous dichro! I love the little flecks on this and everything, and the shape looks perfect. great job!

Shawn - Top notch! I love the colors, which is really weird 'cause I usually don't like pinks... very pretty flower and good dots.

Tracy - I love your critters! Very expressive eyes and everything on them. I was particularly admiring the penguins scarf, because I really like how you did the fringe on it. And see previous post for commentary on the cross. :)

Lisa - I love your colors here... are you using moretti? I'd love to know how you are doing that last bead there! I particularly like the last one, and the swirl of colors in the middle of the middle one. something about the blues...

Whew... I'm going to try to do these commentaries more often... time consuming, but I love it when people comment on my beads, so I better pay back! :)

I love this nite owl s&t. Rita, I am in serious bead lust here. The one to the right of the big orange one, with the black background. OMG.
I have friends at work, husband and wife, who also farm, and raise sheep, just because they love it, not because they think they're going to raise money. What they really want is an Old Macdonald Farm, with some of everything.
I was looking at Sharon Peters web site, and I shamelessly took this idea straight off it. I will never sell one, but this is a gift for my friends....
So with apologies to Sharon for stealing the name too...

Joensey...I wanna be Sharon Peters when I grow up.

12-04-2003, 11:53 PM
Whoa, that's a decent good job, Joensey!
Your next assignment is to figure out how to do 'Sheep Dip'... BWA Haa haaaaaa!

12-04-2003, 11:55 PM
I likie night thread! great beads, I'm going to try and post this again,

12-05-2003, 12:00 AM
Joensey - I LOVE that sheep! I can see why you wanted to make one... that is a most adorable name for it, too! Sharon Peters is great. :)

Amoret - Third time's the charm?

12-05-2003, 12:03 AM
Ok, Sharon, what's scary is- I had a visual. Check back here over the weekend. LOL!!!
And thanks for being kind!

12-05-2003, 02:39 AM
wow!! every ones beads are so beautiful,I can't talk about each one but all are terrific:clap: Did not think there would be so many on this late here are my poor attempts at elephants -- thought you could use a laugh. Gerry


12-05-2003, 05:44 AM
this night-time thread is great! (it's now noon here!) can't post as have no camera but just have to remark on those elephants! they're great!- especially bottom left - flying dumbo!!!

12-05-2003, 12:08 PM
I LOVE those elephants! Lots of other gorgeous beads on here too . . . too many to comment on them all.


12-05-2003, 12:38 PM
I just wrote a long commentary on every post and then the darn thing disappeared!

ran out of time now, but just wanted to comment on what great beads I'm seeing---

quickly gotta say --

Artaholic - I love the elephants! and they did make me laugh in a cartoony, happy kind of way--they're great!

And Tracy I liked your penguin so much I went and placed a bid--love the black effects too on the cross

sorry for the lost comments - I gotta go!

12-05-2003, 03:21 PM
I think I actually ended up trying to get this picture up about 5 times last night!! Last chance.

I think the first step is NOT growing up.
