Hi everyone-
I have not posted in a while...have been on the road some, and catching up with orders. I have several shows coming up, and wanted to make some new styles. So here are some of my new beads. Lots are un-strung still. I have been playing with lots of vintage beads, and having lots of fun! I think most of these will end up with vintage lucite and glass beads.

Any feedback or stringing ideas would be greatly appreciated...
or suggestions as to what I should do with these flower beads? I don't normally do flowers, but have been giving them some time at the torch lately....do they need to be alone on a necklace, or should they have some companion glass beads? Any ideas?

Thanks for looking at my thread!

Carter, the beads are amazing! I especially love those starbursts!!! Are they flat disks or ?? Do they have a hole in them? I'd love to see them from another perspective if you've got time. They're really dynamite. :clap: ~Juliet

O wow - all are really great - I also like those starbursts and wonder if a bead or how your supporting them.
Those florals are great - either way alone or with I've seen but they are definetly focals

Just lovely beads

Thanks everyone for your comments!
As for those Starbursts....maybe my favorite beads ever to make...because they are such a surprise when you pull them out of the kiln...I never know what the colors are going to do until they are cooled.
They are pretty flat, off-mandrel pendants.
Here are some more pics from different angles for you Juliet. They have a pendant loop at the top, so they hang down from the center of a necklace like this other pic.
Thanks so much ya'll. Sometimes I just need some commentary to know if I'm on the right track or not!

Those are great. I too love the starburst and like the way have you that one strung. I'm just a big fan of pendants on a plain silver chain or leather cord. Now I think your last bead/pendant there would look best like that.
