Hello all!

I have been working on a set that is for me a little bit out of the box....in paddle shapes. I can't decide if I think these are cool, weird, or just not worth pursuing....so I will let you guys help me decide....

Thanks in advance....

I like them! They would be great in a necklace, and they look like they would comfortable. :D I say keep at it!

from what I can see, I like them, kinda retro. I need a closer look, but I'm sure they would only get better closer!!!

They look great to me! Are you letting the glass droop then pressing it?

Those are SWEET!!!! I think they would be lovely in a necklace with beads in between them and just to be sure send them to me and I'll wear them for awhile and let you know what people think. :D I agree they kind of have a retro feel, the colors I mean, but that a good thing, RETRO is in baby! Keep up the artistic work

I have been playing with simmilar shapes, I like em :D Pretty color combo!
I would think other people would like to wear them too, but I might be biased, lol I'll have to keep an eye on this thread.

Keep on making them - I've been doing them for a while too. I just didn't think of calling them paddles.......... They make great necklaces.

Very functional design, and I think one is all that you need. Let the focus be on the bead. I don't know what size mandrel you are using, but you may want to try a mandrel large enough to accomodate leather cording. Your paddle style is very organic, which I think would look great sturng on a simple leather cord. The particular color combination of dark and light blue is something I've seen lots of teenagers and 20-somethings wearing, and can be either female or male. Good job.
