Misty stunning sets! I love the Ink Blue one.

My first attempt at Raku & so far I can't get any of the purples....not even on the black! I read through all the threads for tips but it lloks like I'm raku challenged for the moment :crying:
Honey Elf Rocks and Purple Raku Cascade both go up on the bay tonight.
Both are Corina Bead Squeezes

I love the cobalt and lavendar set, very nice. I have been having fun with the raku, base bead of red purple. I put em up on just beads to see what happens.

I made round beads for a change...think I need a 12 step program to help me put my presses down....I love those things !!!! :)

Good morning!

Misty--Cool sets!I like the first set.
Briatha--There was a thread with tips on the Raku? Guess I will have to read it when I have a chance. I really like the set of Honey Elf Rocks.
Sassygirl--Nice lentils
Harriet--I love the bright colors you use.
Beadreamer--Cute stocking stuffers!

I used up all of my Raku on the first day of playing :crying: Here is one eBay set that I made trying to figure out how to coax all of the colors to appear.

Have an awesome day!

Faith ~ What a gorgeous fall set, and that purple one, wow!!!!

Debbie ~ That's a very pretty set! That Raku is dynamite!!!

Harriet ~ It's nice to get back to rounds once in a while, isn't it? I know what you mean about the addiction to presses! Your set is very happy, though! Terrific!

Mary ~ OMG - very cute stocking stuffers!!! I love 'em!!!

Fay ~ Awesome Raku! I'm gonna have to find some of that stuff!!!

Gina ~ Fantastic set, VERY impressive stringer control!!!! I love the way the turquoise outlined itself!

Starlia ~ What a lovely flower... Wish I was brave enough to attempt something like that!

Norma ~ those are incredible, wow!

Annette ~ Those are breathtaking sets, very rich looking!

Onalee ~ yummy yummy yummy!!!

Kelly ~ Awwww... Your Christmas sets are AWESOME!

Nancy ~ very lovely sets and an adorable teddy bear!! So cute!

Dawn ~ those tabs are BEAUTIFUL!!! Yummy!

Oh man, Jeff!!!! LOVE that adorable snail!!! I want one!!!! The rest are fantastic, too!!! Wow!

Well, pardon me, folks, but I'm gonna be a bit of a thread hog this morning... Been saving these up, I guess!

The first set is my Genevieve set, made with transparent lavender blue with silver foil, with turquoise, ivory and ink blue...

This set is My Sweet Baby set, all Moretti except for the pink ones, which are Bullseye. Lotsa bright pastel colors... It was He** getting those letters down - I still needs lots of stringer PPP!

This set is my Denim Blues set, all Moretti in various shades of blues and lavender, just fun... I love doing these, there's a lot of freedom of expression here...

More to come!

Thanks Mary!!! You've been a wonderful inspiration to me! Now if only I could stand mine on end like you do! LOL!

09-21-2004, 12:21 PM
everything is lovely today, great job! It looks like most people have been bit by the Raku bug, lol!

Onalee, I hope you don't mind, but once I played with your picture a bit so that I could see the beads, I wanted everyone else to see how beautiful they were!


09-21-2004, 12:32 PM
Thanks Jenn. They do look better. Onalee

09-21-2004, 02:07 PM
What beauties here today! I never have time to comment on everyone's stuff. About the time I get on the 'puter, my one year old starts calling for me.

So...here's a couple of my latest.

Take care,

Norma, so sparkly!!!!!!

Starlight, so cute, that baby set.

Here is a raked stratified "drag wheelie" bead. All I have to say is raking, raking and more raking. There is an even prettier one in the kiln from today. I can't wait!
