Hi everybody!

After two unproductive days here's new stuff. First one: My lampwork, faceted glas, Swarowski bicones, green freshwater pearls and seedbeads. Second one: glass beads, Swarowski bicones, freshwater pearls. Maybe more later! :)

Here's a piece I did for a charity auction. Centerpiece is PMC (used a piece of old lace for a mold).

Andee - lovely pearl combo as usual and I like your lampwork focal. The other necklace with the rectangular beads is very pretty. I like that shape strung with small beads between. It is simple and easy to wear. What kind of glass are the rectangular beads? I couldn't really tell from the picture.

Jean - what a great idea for a focal piece. That PMC is just great stuff. I have to get some to play with. The other beads set it off so well.

Thanks, Barbara and Mary! :)

Jean - wow, I love the necklace, and your centerpiece! :clap:

Barbara - what type of glass? I really don't know, they're "Böhmische Glasperlen". I alternated etched and shiny ones...

Here's another one - I love this chaotic stringing of small beads...

Soz, it was too late to edit my last posting - I just decided to add dangles to the necklace, so here's the new version:

Jean ! it's great! I love looking at all the PMC here lately - it will definitely get me to pull mine out and try it.

Andee! All great http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/13-Sep-2004/27814-faintthud.gif but I love the last one, especially with the dangles!



This is all I have - a fun day at the torch yesterday - nothing great but lots of firsts - first pumpkins, first face (it cracked) first twisties, first whatever it is those little glass flowers you put in... love the colors in the big ones :)

Pam - hey, where does that thuddy-icon come from? :wave: Great stuff for firsties, I especially like the pumpkins and the big one that looks as if you set leaves on it (4th from the left), and do you by any chance mean mille fiori? ;)

Andee!! I love all of your necklaces, but especially that second one from your first post. Wow!! I dig it. ;)

Pam, bead making looks fun... :) I like the third one over, very pretty!

Very nice piece, Em! I thought that lace focal was a hand for a minute. :D One of those really ornate buddhist ones.

Nothing from me, of course--moving is sucking the marrow out of my bones!

Andee, beautiful work on the necklaces, but the one with the dangles is drop-dead gorgeous. Love the colors and variety in it.

Jean, how clever of you to use lace as a mold! It's really beauteous!

Pam, love the effect of the frit! I remember when I first started buying lampwork beads, I liked all of them to be neat & clean looking, very regimented. Now, I'm in love with the unconstructed raku look and feel more comfortable using those in my designs. I think they unleash creativity or something...

Finished the spiral part of my necklace, now just need to do some stringing. I'm LOVING that spiral technique; planning to start another one this afternoon.

In English that would be Bohemian Glass, and then I think the translation is Pearls, but we only call the things from oysters (or clams) or their glass copies pearls. Maybe the translation I'm looking for is pearlescent, which means with a pearl like lustre.

I like the chaotic stringing too and the dangles you added to the necklace with the leaf just really looks good.

Barbara - right, duh to me, of course I know that term... But no, I wouldn't say pearls, I know in English these are called beads... But these Bohemian glass beads don't have any lustre, so I'm kinda lost here... Anyway, thanks! :)

I just looked up a translation of perlen and it said beads or pearlies. I imagine that this German word for bead was derived from the word for pearls. I though Drücken was the word for bead. Shows how much I know. :)

Or maybe it was the other way around? ;)

I can imagine where you got that from - there are such things as "Druckperlen" in German, which means pressed beads, and "drücken" comes from "Druck"... Funny, tho! :)

Hmmm... possible but I would think that pearls came before glass beads but maybe not before clay or bone beads so I guess either is possible. The evolution of words has always interested me.
