Those are awesome Beth! I like the 3rd set best, I love the colors and the shape of the focal is great.

Beth - I love all of yours, specially blue one. Are you going to have some tutorial for us?

bizzano - Same question here, are these hollow? or blown? Anyway they are awesome.

littlecrow1 - He is so cute.

I have been experimenting silver/frits with a recipe from Corina's book.

I guess it was worth the wait! Beautiful beads to start the day! The colors are wonderful in the middle set.

Love that Xmas ornament! And Santa is too cute with his little red nose. :)

Here's a festive crown shaped bead with some "sugar" beads to go with it...

Deb - that santa's sweet. i like how the hat brim is curved and decorated. also the rosy nose and i love the texture of his beard.

Jennifer - both of those are amazing but i really dig the tabular organic focal, how big is?

Sachiko - those bicones are cool. i think i'll play with some frit today. i really like anything incorporating silver. ;)

Mardi - Ohh... that focal's cool. I like how you hung it in the middle with that little spacer under it.


My pics are actually the same ornament with two different types of lighting. It is hollow/blown. I started with a small tube, 12.7mm and coil potted the sparkly green color around it. Basically coiling the rod around the rim of the 12.7mm tube continuously making a section of green tubing with it. Blew it out in a bubble and trailspun the mint color on it and melted it back down all smooth and blew it back out in a bubble. I think I'll make a handful of them today with different colors as presents for family members.

These are scanned so they are a little blurry. The colbalt blue is my first ever bicone. It's close to 1-1/2". I used silvered transparent colbalt stringer over trans colbalt and encased in light blue. Something went wrong and nothing happened except a little hint of internal silver swirls from forming the bicone with heat. But I like it anyway.

Great work everyone!

Beth, I love the enameled beads!

Jennifer, you continually amaze me.

Great inspiration.

Here's what I was messing around with last night. The green one cracked, but I just wanted to show you what I've been doing with frit lately.

Would you look at all these gorgeous pieces of lampwork! Beautiful and inspirational work everyone!!!!!

I'm finally out of bed (flu/pneumonia) and am putting in some torch time. Here's an unfinished set (more in kiln) that I've been working on for the last three days...it's called "Gingerbread" and I hope to be getting it up on Ebay this weekend. I spent most of my time while I was in bed watching the cooking channel...thus my inspiration for this set.

Lori, those are beautiful. I never would have guessed rubino oro, the pink looks so opaque in the picture. What is 'red' copper green? I've never used any copper green so I'm not sure what you mean.

Thanks for telling, I always feel awkward asking. With beautiful beads like those you might want to keep your recipes as a 'trade secret'! Although as a newbie I find it amazing how two people can use the same color combos and get such diferent results. Thank's for sharing!

Beautiful beads everyone... Jan Harris, you are amazing! So intricate and consistent!
I'll have to add to the Night Owl thread as my beads are cooling, I hate the wait!!

The 'red' copper green was a batch of copper green where the rods actually came out looking red and reacted differently than the normal minty colored copper green. I don't know if there is still more to be ordered or whatever happened with that. Some people were not very happy when they got it. I have both and like them both. The green colored rods of copper green will give you a lighter teal background rather than the turquoise look.

Oh my gosh. I look at everyone's stuff and I am just humbled. I obviously need to ignore my family (and my computer) more and spend more quality time with my torch. Here's mine:

Lori,
That is how I feel. I always have too much anxiety after posting in the show and tell!
Everyones work is soooo amazing!
Lori, I was just thinking about you this morning as I was sitting on the commode. LOL!!!!
I was going through Mary Engelbreit's "Home Companion" magazine for December and saw the most wonderful little "poppet" types of drawing and thought, now Lori Petterson should give these a go in glass.
They just looked like the kind of things you create, but you do it so much better!
I love that magazine, full of great color inspiration too.

Blyneth,
These really do look and feel like velvet. Sort of a sand blasted feel but softer. I leave these in the acid bath longer than I do most beads, I think that is the trick, and leaving lots of plain glass exposed helps offset the colors and details of the frits and enamels. Jennifer, who is the ruler supreme in my book on enamels can conjure up some real magic with her work!

To all you artist......simply beautiful creations today, It seems we are all in a blue green sort of place doesn't it.
Today, amber, green and orange, sounds weird, but I'm seeing something in my minds eye, now if I can just grab it, pull it out and make it in 3D form......smiles!

Happy Weekend,
Beth
