Happy Easter Everyone!! I am so glad I woke up in the middle of the night! What a disaster that would have been! :D

Briatha Very pretty lentils!! Yours are always so feminine!
Fay I love the colors in your organic! Especially the top blue section!

These are part of an orphan auction I am running on the bay now. The one in the middle is one of my latest 24K gold fumed focals well upside down anyways.. Its really transparent! I just got a new camera and well I have to take the kinks out of this one! :) Hmm I also tried a few silver fumed but will get a photo up later! :)

Faith......I love your lentils....I wish I could get that shape!!

Fay....that is to die for...gorgeous!!

Heidi.............Lovely beads!! Lots of fun shapes and designs!

I had the most incredible week...........incredible in a bad way......not only did I NOT get to torch much....but nearly everything I torched......came out of the kiln and went straight to the trash :( I also then lost my port for downloading pics...........finally got that fixed........this is one that was spared from the trash............a few out of the kiln this morning that might make it......maybe more pics later :)

The second picture is some commissioned work by Dog Star Designs.....I was checking out the website of one of my customers and so I emailed her and sent one of my beads for her to make into this incredible necklace.......it isn't the best picture.....but ....WOW...it is gorgeous!!

Faith, I absolutely love that light blue, gorgeous set!
Fay, breathtaking focal! I love it!
Heidi, way cool set of beads!!
Diane, I love all those colors - you have nothing to be shy about!
Katie, sorry for your rough week! I am speechless about that necklace! Do you still have the focal that is like that one on your website for sale? If so, I must have it!
Here is a boro focal I made yesterday, I could not focus on a set so played around with focals. Happy Easter everyone! Jill

Happy Easter everyone. Here is I put together yesterday and it reminds me of the Laura Ashley fabrics.

Colors are a bit off but it's still dark outside for photographing.

Wow Katie, That necklace is just perfect for that bead. It is just amazing!

Here's something new from me:

Delicious! wonderful array of goodies this Easter morning!

Okay, okay, more gingham. This time it's black, daisies have pink and red centers.


I'm still going to keep you guessing on the precise method; I'll just say that the secret is DOTS. :evil:


04-11-2004, 10:00 AM
Wow, you guys those are amazing! :) Katie that necklace is just PERFECT! Tanares, I adore, adore, adore those beads, very nice! Rose, you're right, L. Ashley, all the way :) Jill, if I don't get my hands on some boro soon I'm going to go completely nucking futs on everyone :) Gorgeous work! (and a piss poor memory on me, but I loved them all!)

These are the first beads I did on my Cheetah. I love 'em, even if the ends are a little rough :) Unfortunately, without the flash you lose some of the darker colors but with the flash the ivory gets washed out, so I'm showing both. The focal (I guess it's a focal, it's in the middle!) would've been great, but apparently ivory likes to pretend it's white when it's encased, so it's not quite as cool as the others. The shapes are all wonky here, but that's because the glass works so fast on the Cheetah!

At any rate, I'm happy with 'em :)

Blessings this Easter morning everyone, cannot type much, kibby cat is on my tummy, so this is a hard postion to type in...Thank God she is on my tummy, she has been sitting at the front door all night, waiting for Mieshka to come home since he died...This morning I found her in her kitty condo, and now she is on my tummy. What a relief, I was afraid she was not gonna make it thru loosing her huge buddy. It is so funny cause the first day I brought him home she swiped his nose and drew blood and went in the bedroom for a month, but gradually they ended up on the bed at the same time, and then together on the bed, and then eventually snuggling, kinda hard to play with the size difference, but he was a sight hound who loved to chase, and she LOVED to be chased, so it all worked out GREAT for 6 years...So quiet around here now, but at least I feel like Ms. Kibby Cat is gonna make it....Beautiful work, have a wonderful Easter Sunday - God Bless - Virginia L.

Tink, sorry about your headaches, boy do I understand, a migraine and cluster head suffer myself. Hugs to you hon, Hoe they go away soon!

I am impressed everyday when I look at everyones stuff , It's so amazing what glass can do. Ok here's some of my beads that actually made it into jewelry. The first one has the greatest bubble in it . It makes it really sparkley. I know some people strive for no bubbles but I dunno , I just love the way it looks. The second one has the coolest swirl in it , it's a shame that the colors don't photo very well , it's bunch of really cool greens and purples. Thats all for today Thanks. :)

It's kinda funny when I posted these I didn't realize that the first one looks lopsided ,I am hoping it's just the picture ! :evil:
