Gorgeous Kelly,

The stringer work is amazing! would love to see them up close and personal! ;) :evil: :angel:

I was wondering the exact same thing. Where is everyone? I have some beads to show, but hubby has the comp with the scanner. So I'll scan when I get a chance will post later I think. :-)

Hugs from Holland,
Sarah the one on Vacation!

We introduced ourselves a few days ago. This is our first show-and-tell. Here are our newest ebay auctions:

Crystal Hyacinth is a vessel of Lauscha clear with purpley-blue frit.

Royal Plum is a simple set with small hollow.

Spa is purple and green swirled opaque cores, heavily encased in clear.

Guess we were in a purple mood yesterday. :)

They're wonderful though :)

Great work all... Kelly.. I love that set! Nice!

Here's another "dollface"... I'm having fun with these.

Hi guys!

It is taking me longer than I thought to recover from vacation. I let too many things slide!

Here is another custom order. I have to make 25 of these babies plus a tab focal. I am not too good at repeats. I thought the 30 bead exchange was going to kill me in my sleep. ;)

Just a quick stop on my way to work. Some beautiful stuff here today!

Still stuck on gaffer, but trying some opaques now.

Wow nice beads! That snowflake is too cool, and Jen the doll face WOW :clap: .

I have been working on dots inspired by Nicole B's awsome dots beads. So I started with these salmon egg beads.

Great stuff today, everyone! Nothing to post today (posted ladies yesterday), but wanted to stop in...

Kelly- great stringer work- I love the color combo too.
Jacinthe- The snowflake is great... go more in that direction...
Gigi- Fun! I'm sure those are a blast to make- I love the ghosts!
Jen- The doll faces are very neat. A great new variation on your syles. I like them very much!
Toni- Great twistys! :-)

Oooh, nicole, ya snuck in on me- those are great... awesome job on the dot control! Did ya have sushi last night? aahhghahthgh...(whatever the sound that Homer Simpson makes while drooling).... crunch rolls and squid salad....

08-17-2004, 01:04 PM
Wow - great beads today!
Jacinthe - your star beads AMAZE me - gorgeous!
Kelly - you set the bar for stringer control!
Debbie/Scott - love the rich purple colors
Gigi - what can I say - adorable!!
Jennifer - TOTALLY out of the box - LOVE IT!
Moth - Good luck with the repeats - nice colors for fall!
Toni - love the gaffer - beautiful depth
Nicole - great dots! How are you getting the silver?

Here's my offering - preparing for fall - one tiger set (black/white, SIS, Lauscha clear, amber, touch of gold avertine in some). I think the transparent green is moretti light emerald green - over dichro.

08-17-2004, 01:04 PM
Sarah - Cool snowflake, great idea.

Mary - I like those custom order beads, great colors.

Toni - I LOVE those beads, what great color and designs. I just have some of the transparent gaffer and think I would like to opaque more.

I have another purple stone bead.

Beautiful work everyone! I love starting my day looking at all the inspiring lovelies. Today's offering for me are goddesses. The first one is red coppergreen with silvered ivory stringer, etched. The second one is etched black. The third is the fabulous mango coral with a yellow flower on her hip.
Have a great day everyone!

Nice work, everyone! I've been out of it for a few days. Here's my total torchage for the day. I'm on a strong painkiller, and John was kind enough to babysit me long enough for me to make these four beads :clap: There's so much I want to do... I hope I can torch tonight.





08-17-2004, 01:22 PM
Norma, they are fairly simple beads. Make a base of dark (black) add silver marver well and melt in. Dot with white, dot with trans and add the center black dots.

Margaret, no sushi...darn it I have to hunt out a good sushi place here.

Laura I love those pueple rocks :clap: they rock!

Tink you take care of yourself!

Gorgeous work, everyone! Love it!

08-17-2004, 03:43 PM
I just wanted to say - Everyone has such gorgeous beads today! WOW! I love the S&T thread. Today was one of those especially good days, though. I just have to say this though....
Christy - the godesses are wonderful! Man, they are giant up top! Maybe they should be the x-rated godesses! Still, just fantastic ! (Lmbo - I misspelled fantastic - I by accident replaced the "c" with a "t" while I was typing -- just a tiny freudian slip, huh? Must be so spellbound by the beads! :) )

08-17-2004, 03:43 PM
All are great offerings! Tink- I love the #3 bead!

Hi, I haven't been making beads this summer with the kids off school and vacations but the new Raku Jitterbug made me turn the torch on! Looking forward to Sept. ( :evil: ) and more torch time!! It's been cool to look at how everyone has progressed since last time I was here and see all the new lampworkers!!

Clear Gaffer and Jitterbug focal.....(hope i can remember how to post a photo)
