Hi Guys!

It's not quite Saturday in California yet, but..... :D

Mary -- pretty colors, well-made eclectic set! :cool:

Faith -- Sweet beadies. :)

Okay, so because of the encouragement from Beth, Vikki, Val, Holly, and Toni, in that order :D (in Beth/Dr.Mungo's challenge thread), I'm posting the progress of the goddess vessels. (I'll probably be making them on an almost daily basis until I get them figured out :p )

The first one is supposed to be a flame, but looks more like "I'm the inventor of the candy corn bead" -- LOL -- with a nod to Beth :evil: . Heh heh heh....

And then there's another one, just because I like BE cranberry.

They are both little essential oil/perfume vessels, approximately two-and-a-half inches from top to bottom with the stoppers in place.

I love show and tell - all the creations are beautiful! The hearts are really classy and romantic, just have that elegant feel to them and

Moth - your bead set is to die for!!

Terri - your vessel is gorgeous, I love the flaming top!

I had some fun with etching Moretti and doing a bit of boro.

Oh Boy! I love the start today's show and tell! I can tell veryone is gearing up for a hot beading weekend!

Well I had a different kind of request from my daughter who does some special effects work for movies. This is a different kind of "eye" candy!
They are for some 4 minute horror flick.

Have fun!

Creepy eyeballs!! Cute pumpkin girl!! Love the vessels (I haven't ventured that far yet)!

Well, I got a shipment from Frantz yesterday. It had the new Light plum silver, dark plum silver, and trans lavender blue!!!!! I preordered them and thought they weren't due in until Sept!! I bet Mike got the stuff just in time to take it to the Gathering and unload it!

I just played a little last night to see what the stuff looked like. The plums reduced naturally I guess. The lt plum is really nice, the dark plum is so dark it is almost black, the trans lav blue is really pretty. Take a look.

Good Morning!
Well, all I have to say is....The "EYES" have it.... :evil: Great beads everybody!
I am adding a vessel....fun hollow form with components.....
Ok...first pull all the component petals and 2 butterfly wings from the ends of the glass rod...stick in the front of the kiln to keep warm....make a hollow bead vessel....neck first..shape...little bead at the end of mandrel...build hollow..shape..add enamel..add flower petals..shape, make sure adhered well....add butterfly wings....add glass loop....this all takes time..as after each component you need to go back and reheat everything...neck...hollow..etc....I love making them...hugs....j. :D

Hi everyone. Great stuff, as always.

Here's one I'm in love with, it's a BIG lentil! 1.5 inches. Unfortunately it has a knick around one of the holes so it won't be going on eBay, but on the good side, I get to keep it and fondle it.

Transparent base, enamels, dots...not much to tell.

Great beads everyone! Those eyeballs are too cool, Lydia--I think you should definitely make more, in bead form. They'd make wonderful pendants for optometrists. Love 'em!
Here's a set of Moretti lentils (with Val's frits) I just listed on the 'Bay with my boros:

Eye agree the EYEs are great.
Great beads everyone.
Here are more of the petroleum green with stringers
Also more alchemy with copper and silvered stringers on different colors.
Just wanted to experiment. Sorry the second scan is dark but I wanted the true colors to show. Sam

Great works everyone. Mary, I've really enjoyed watching your skills with glass grow. You're doing such a wonderful job!

Great work today . .. . good one Lydia, eye candy, LOL!!!!!

Here's a new set using copper green and a 5-color cane (red, coral, orange,yellow and purple red). I'm definitely going to pursue this technique and think I can improve on it . . . I like how the white dots funnel into the bead, kinda 3-D :)

And a new pendant . . .the base is periwinkle with silver leaf, flowers and lauscha encased:

Wonderful! Such pretties today. I was going to post my first show and tell after my beads got out of the kiln (I batch anneal). However I forgot to put the temperature guage in the kiln.... so it ended up on high for 2 hours! Needless to say I have puddles instead of pretty beads to show. :D

Ginny, I am dying to know what you strung that beautiful pendant on also. Is it clear plastic covering a chain? Too cool looking!!!!!

Gerry & Fran - from what I can tell it's a clear, soft rubber cord with a very thin ribbon of yellow in the middle, and the cord is twisted. It's attached to a lobster clasp on the end. I have other colors, and the tags just say "made in china" :rolleyes: . . . . . I buy them at an import store here in Dallas called Sam Moon. I'll stop by there next week and see if I can get more info from the manager about them.

Thanks for the answer Ginny. Please let me know here or pm me if there is someplace to order the neck-cords. I am getting ready to make some jewelry for our "Relay for Life" team fundraiser and that might be something I could use for some projects.
Thanks again.

Sorry all - I posted and left. Anne - I didn't make it to the meeting last night - went to Dallas for my grand nephew's christening! I didn't get to see everyone else's creations until today. I am glad you all liked the "eye" candy. My daughter was thrilled. Our nephew wants me to make some eyes as drink stirrers for him! I love everyone's creations. What a neat bead Laurie - sorry it chipped.
