Hi Trey, That's a lovely set - very soft colors :).

I sure like that we now have a night thread - maybe I can get my act together to post more often.

Here's some from earlier this week that I cleaned. Took the pics on my desk with a one small light so probably gonna look dark.....

first a holiday set that's probably gonna be a gift:

some ivory experiments:

and some little guys:

I'm supposed to be packing for a show tomorrow...guess I'd better get on it. Not feeling terribly enthused cuz it's gonna be a small show, but still, I'm committed (not committable now....).

I like this idea of night owls posting - its too much of a rush in the a.m to get my beads out of kiln clean and try to get pics and rush off to work.

I love those beads they are really intricate - stringer chanllenged
Nice Christmas set - the ivory's look tea stained

Of course you have to remember to charge the battery to your camera too so you can get pics - duh !
So tonight just a few pics - I'll show the others tomorrow
Of course - Sugar beads - seams to be big request and I am no longer lentil chanllenged and I love using the Val Frit (VF)

Beautiful beads girls. I'm holding off using Val's frit until after the holidays. I LOVE the sugar beads. Gwacie, your ivory beads look like pottery and Trey how do you keep an attention span to stay with 2 colors for so many pretty beads. I guess I'm ADD. Here are 2 bracelets I put together. I like to mix glass with mineral and of course silver.
I'm enjoying the late nighter society. lorrie

Trey- great colors, and Wow that's a lot of beads/ I get bored when I do half that many in the same color combos.

Bethany- The Ivory set is my favorite- to die for

Deborah- I have been drooling over your sugar beads, going to figure thoes out one of these days

Lorrie- So Elegant! the sets will definatly sell and for a high price.

Ciao- you make me want to try boro, Ohhh the colors

The Night owl is so much fun!

Whoooooo? Me? Not tonight. But I have some closeup detail shots and a new mountain faerie fern with bird. So, at least that's something. Great beads guys. I'm digging all of them but the ivories seem to stick out as something in a new direction. Tea stained? Sorry for the brevity. I'm a bit taciturn on the keyboard as of late. I'm flying back to the nest to catch a wink or two. Rita:cat:

ohhh awww Rita,

I am digging the close ups. Beautiful! I especially love the webbing on the purple ones. Pic. 2 and 7 I always wonder what the beads look like close up. You can feel these, like I can actually reach out and touch them. It would be fun to post a bunch of beads and then post one close up. See if people can guess what bead it came from. Guess it is getting late, I'm off to make one more fan pull before bed. But it has been a productive day I have 30 beads in the kiln!

Nite Nite,

I've got a kiln full of beads right now, so no new pictures! :(

But... I wanted to say how beautiful all of these beads are,

Deborah, I really love the sugar beads! They just glow so well

Bethany, That Ivory set really jumped out to me! I think they are great, very unique!

Rita, Very cool close ups. I like the swirling with the texture lines!

Amoret, Love the blue and yellow boro! Such great colors!
