WOW, it is an hour and a half into Sunday, and no show and tell, well I love to start them...expecially when I cannot sleep...got a big slug in the heart by my family today...boy, anyway, at least I got some good beads made or beads that I like anyway - first a couple of "fiesta" colored beads, inspired by my southwest style gym bag, and then an Easter bumpy dot bead - I hope you all have a wonderful Sunday - God Bless you and keep you well - Virginia L.

Nice beads, I really like the colors of the Easter Bumpy, I don't have anything to share I'm To lazy to go get them off the mandrels and clean them up. However like you I couldn't sleep so thought Id check in and see who else was being a night owl,

Wow Greg, those lips are great and I love that you left some open space between the hair and the neck on the right side, very natural look.
Virginia, your Easter bead is so unique, I love it

Thanks everyone - I am going to enter into Corina's bead exchange, I will try to get that one in...........Love everyones work today, the one needed that little "hiny" on it though, LOL, a little to vivid for my Sunday before church, but I will survive...anyway, I posted the pictures below that I am planning to enter in the challenge, I really would like to win that camera, I sure need it, thanks for offering, but I will try to get my 35 mm to take a decent enough picture, I am going to see if I can get a composit picture of the beads below, I will try to get the Easter bummpy photographed in time to go in with them..it is kinda hard, since I don't drive, but I might be able to accomplish it...needles to say I need that camera, the camera, an oxygen concentrator, money to go to the gathering, money to visit my grandson...I think these beads better go out and get jobs and pay for themselves...Oh, ya, that is what eBay is for, I hope - thanks for all the encouragement, it means more to me than you can immagine - God Bles - Virginia L.

Jamn!

I picked up a box of stained glass scrap from a local SG shop (15lb for $8, can't beat that!) - and it had some glass in there that I'm not sure of the name - it's like it has little colored pieces fused into it.

Anyhoo - I decided that it might make nice beads, so, here's a hollow & some spacers, and a sample of the glass.

OK - off to look at everyone elses beads!
(edited to add the "unedited" picture - I've been having fun playing with the background remover tool in PSP and I just can't stop removing backgrounds!)

Lovely beads everyone. I'm going to single out Rachelle and say those are some very very pretty vessels. Love them.

I'm calling this bead SLEEK ORGANIC. It is made with lt murano ivory, dark moretti ivory, intese black and regular black on the ends.

Wonderful Job Jenn!! They turned out lovely!! It is a great technique for those days when you want a floral and don't have the patience to encase them!! :D

Lara, that happens when I try to take pictures too! They could ignore me for hours, but as soon as the camera comes out, they want to be right there to see what I'm doing. Today one of them tried to take off with a strand of beads. Luckily Chris was there to stop him, I've had one cat take off with a nice shiny necklace I was photographing (while I was in on the phone) and I have never found where she hid it.

Enough of my boring cat stories! Besides being addicted2beads, I'm addicted2cats too. Here are a couple new boro sets. I have a customer who wanted to see some bigger sets, so I've been working on it~
