Nice Char! I like the first necklace and the greens a lot!

Here's a honeycomb pendant I made recently. It really has a lot of depth, you can see better in the BIGGER PICS (http://www.glassartists.org/Gallery.asp?GalleryID=5380)

Jeremy!! WOW...love what you have going on there. Love it so much I went to your auction and went through the whole registration thing just so I could bid on your gold implosion. I gotta have it!! I know...it's not a honecomb, but it just nabbed me.

Char, great work and thanks for the bead PORN!!! :clap: :clap: :clap:

Little Crow, Superb!! I knew I had seen it already, but it was worth the second look for sher!!!

Nilaya...no...actually I can't tell from the picture how comfy it is. I think you need to send it to me so I can try it on and then I will send it back to you. Sometime next month. Maybe. ;)

I don't have anything new, but I am up and can't go back to sleep because we moved my daughter into her own room for the first time and I miss her being right next to my bed. :(

Here are some tigers from last week.

Char - Love the necklaces- especially the first! What a debut!!! :clap:

Jeremy - Awesome pendant - love the side view picture!!

Deb - Is that just the cutest bear, or what! Your sculptural work is amazing!

Nilaya - great bracelet - you sure coaxed wonderful colors out of the glass!

Mary - oooooooo, love the tiger beads!!

More gingham! These are a little smaller than I started with, 6x10 to 7x12mm on 1/16" mandrels. I'm thinking that gingham might make for a good demo at the MI cabin retreat; I can have someone take pics so I can post a tutorial when I get back.

What a great start and it's not yet morning! I love the teddy bear, very cute. Nilaya, that bracelet is georgous! Great job with the beads and the design. I love it and it looks comfy. You have convinced me I need to add the Carnelian to my next glass order... Here are a couple things from me. Top set is Val's Frit Lime Green and Violet Blue and the second set is Opal yellow with Val's Frit in Butter Cream and Cashmere.

Wowza amazing S&T today. Some fabulous colors. I am finally on an earlier schedule (how long it will last who knows) so I hope to make S&T more often. Here's our showing for the day. Alas there is no pink, but purple makes a nice substitute :D LOL...We don't usually do many hearts but I have become just obsessed with doing these, I like them cause you can make them big but they are still very light-weight. I came up with a water-colour like affect with the stringer on the one heart, I really like the way it looks...well off to start my day (that means I need java)....Have a good one....

Wow, great stuff everyone! Jeremy, I have serious boro envy myself now and Sarah, what great ducks, all those little duckies made me feel a bit psychotic this morning, like I ought to be screaming, "get these ducks off meeeeee!" :D Everything this morning is GORGEOUS!

Here's a couple of sets I've made over the past few nights :)

The first one is kind of plain and not all that matched since my gray beads came out alllll wrong, but at least the sizes and shapes are nice :)

The second one I did last night and while it was cooling it had FABULOUS colors in it, but now it looks like someone preserved their puke after a night of drinking in bead form. :D

I apologize for the picture quality - it was taken by an uncaffinated hussy. :)

Good Tuesday morning, I hope your day is going well...Just two beads from me, one I am very happy with, 4 1/2 inches long, and one I am heartbroken over, 4 1/4 inches long, NOT ANY MORE!!!! :crying: ...All that work and poof, it is gone...I worked so incredibly long just getting the main bead, with all kinds of colors for a canvas for the flowers. This was going to be my entry into the Corina Challenge this month and now I have to do it all over again..I have had bead disasters before, but nothing quite so heartbreaking as this one - I Love everything that you all have shown today, but that teddy, well it grabbed my heart right away - Have a wonderful Tuesday - God Bless - Virginia L.

And a goofy experiment. It's a hollow vessel that evolved into a vase. I'm going to reheat it today to work on the mouth and see if I can make it a little less wonky. But gee, it was fun! It's about 2" tall and 1" at the widest part.

Nice Char! I like the first necklace and the greens a lot!

Thanks Jeremy (and everyone else) for the compliments. The green beads are pale yellow green base, a thin layer of nile green opalino and little streaks of ink blue and periwinkle.

It's actually a SOB I rescued from the water bucket. I was trying to double encase, but got the silly thing too hot and it tried to drip off the mandrel. I mushed and squished, heated the tool marks out, and stuck it in the kiln. I liked it so much I made it two little buddies at the following torch session. The ink streak is much bluer than the photo shows.

Hey, great work everyone (as usual!),
Is there a larger diamond press available now? I saw it on zooziis post - looks great!

Virginia - not surprised you are sad about that bead breaking - it was lovely! I love that style of floral. And I'd love to be able to make long beads - I am thinking of trying two hotheads next to each other. (it was mnetioned in another post smewhere)I dont have anything to show at the moment - the only beads I have made for weeks are recreations of medieval viking beads, which while great for recreationists, aren't all that exciting to look at!

But I love coming to look at all the eye candy - Thanks everyone!

Thank you Mary! I'd be honored for you to own one of my pieces! :cool:
