The :cat: jumped on the keyboppard and my post was posted before I even got past the title!

It is almost 4 pm over here in the land down under! Here's a couple of bead sets... one with turquoise, opaque pale violet colour and that tequila coral... and another with tequila, brown and turquoise!

happy weekend y'all... and don't forget the aeroguard!

I can't believe I'm awake! It's midnight here, I've been struggling to get this custom order ready for tomorrow. My DH built a new photo box for me and I've been having some fun. Here is one of my favorite floral beads. This one is going to be a gift to a fellow WC member for our bead exchange. I doubt she'll be awake! (Though Murphy's law always applies to me!)
Donni: I'm a big fan of tequila (coral that is!)
CorriDawn: I love the shape of your vessel!
Briatha: Those raku lentils are breath taking!

Take care all! Thanks for looking!

Hey, I am finally getting the hang of my "Zoom" to some extent, I wish the sun would come out so I can get some good light behind this :D

Happy days! it is really a breath of fresh air coming into the thread and seeing all the fun stuff. I've got two more hearts to show today. I haven't had one go for any where close to $400, but I figure if I keep at it long enough... maybe... just maybe- LOL :D

Anyway, the bluish one is Blue moon and moss green. The other piece isn't that yellow in real life. My camera doesn't want to capture the tan color right.

I hope you all have a fantaaaaaaaabulous day! :wave:

Donni, I love those colors together!

I got to torch this MORNING which I've never done before! I got up at 3 and just got going! I was a little sleepy so I stuck to basics, I'll have picture tonight when I get home from work!

Donni ~ what a luscious color combo! Like the designs too!
Corri ~ that shape is so sensuos, It reminds me almost of a goddess.
Faith ~ Raku rocks is so earthen looking
Kim ~ wow, that looks like a masterpiece!
Retta ~ reminds me of space
Mr. Smiley ~ That yellow mult colored one would make my sister a happy gal, must go find it!

I love this set, but it is very southwestern. The Kokopelli is a Native American symbol, but he's sooo much fun!!!! Base of Lauscha cocoa, size zero raku, design in either light turquoise, coral or cocoa and then sprinkled with goldenrod enamel.

Tom- I've been admiring your bracelts for a while now. How do you make them?
Shadesongs - Wow! That's stunning.

Thanks for sharing the photos everyone! Today there's nothing new from me. I've got a few bead sets in the queue but nothing ready for the camera yet. Have a great weekend everyone! ~Juliet

Loving this S&T...
Here's my contribution,

Nancy B in IL

The base for the kitty is a lovely purple.....handmixed amethyst and ink blue, layered over white.

The cane used for roses was White center, then streaky pink then rubino.

Wow, Love the beads today. Love the first set. Very unique, and the southwestern set, and Mr Smiley your hearts are so neat. Keep up the work everybody. I'm off the torch for a few days getting ready to do some entertaining. Have to discipline myself or I wouldn't get anything done. Onalee

The holiday season has been keeping me SO busy! I haven't been able to spend near as much time here as I like to lately. But, BOY, am I glad I picked today to post the photo of our local guilds monthly auction. What a great show & tell already! I'm not usually shy about picking out a few favorites... but I'm totally stumped today... they're ALL so beautiful! You guys are just plain GOOD! :clap:

We have a really cool auction this month... just in time for the holidays too. An ebay search for LL757 will take you right to it. The talent in this little guild really blows me away. Here's the photo, enjoy!

I haven't been to S&T in a LONG time and OMG you guys (and gals) are amazing! Beautiful beads everyone.

Jenn (Foo!) What bead press is that? Is that a Corina or a Zoozii's?? I love that shape!

Uuugh, I'm just drooling over Mr Smiley's colorful heart -- I peeked on eBay already and it's out of my price range already (with Christmas coming, my budget is tighter than ever).

Sorry my memory span is too short to mention everyone personally but I loved it all. I finally have something fun to show (lately I'd been doing a lot of production work and nothing fun to show) Both are simple beads but I loved the results...

Time Flies and Cup o' Joe....
(sure hope I chose the right pictures...lol)

I'm fighting the urge to end that one heart auction up to $71 already and just declare them the winner. Why do I feel guilt over things going high? My Dad talked me out of it. I need to practice accepting praise in any form. Thanks for the kind words about my work. I really do appreciate them. I think you guys are amazing every day I come in here and see what you are doing. I am just more comfortable with some one else getting a lot of money for their work... it just feels weird being me. I guess maybe I'm just making up for some of the ones that went way low in the past... The universe is finding a balance.

Take care! :wave:

Thank you everybody. My mind is more at ease. Deb, I don't take things the wrong way most of the time. I find it so funny how we all walk on egg shells around here so we don't accidentally offend any body. I'm thick skinned and read things with a happy tone to the voice in my head- LOL

Take care all. I can't wait til tomorrows show and tell. Amaya said she would have something for us again! :clap: :clap: :clap:

PS- Deb, I will have some of your work as well. I am blown away at what you do. :wave:

Jessie(?) I love your cool sweet snow and ice beads... quiet beads ... I find that inspiring... I am writing an article at the moment called "Dare to be Simple" it's not that I don't love all the adventurous beads, it's just that beads like yours can make such easily wearable jewelry...

I have to agree with Kate, sometime less is more. I love that set. Made up into jewelry it would go with just about anything a person could wear.

Thanks so much for the compliments on my beads. Sometimes I wonder if I'm heading in the right direction..it seems I am. I really like making jewelry with my beads, and since I get so little time to make them, they are usually small and simple. :D

Mr Smiley- just wanted to also add my 2 cents worth about your hearts- they are beautiful! Almost bid on the blue one I admired the other day but had to stop myself...too many Christmas gifts yet to buy :( .

(But I do have a birthday coming up soon! :evil: ) Maybe I'll hint to hubby :wink2:
