I just want to show these off! I was "tickled pink" when I pulled these out of the kiln! Rubino centers encased in pale lavender makes such a yummy pink!

I saw those on eBay earlier, Gina, and nearly swooned. Thanks for letting us in on the pink secret!

This set is made with clear and Iris Gold shards (thanks Val!).... the pic doesn't capture the luster, but still is kinda pretty.

Holy Geez! Those snowflake beads are incredible! And Teri, those beads remind me of amber, which is my favorite!

Thought I'd take a peek in the show and tell before I go to sleep. I actually got two vessels in the kiln tonight before I had to give up. Knee and toe were too owie to keep working. And I get to (try to) blow glass tomorrow! Yay!

Thanks so much ladies! I think these are the skinniest stringer lines I've done yet so far. I probably looked pretty silly......in my nightie, hair sticking out in every direction, bending over the kiln doing this goofy happy dance 1st thing in the morning......good thing there are no windows near the kiln..... :p

...and Briatha!!!!!! I LOOOOOVE those colors in the Rustic Canyons set!!!! :clap: Mind if I ask what you used?

Briatha

Thanks Gina. Rustic Canyons were made with Evil Purple and R106 Frit #1.

Fabulous beads!

Here's a boro vessel and some smaller hearts I've been working on. Two of them in the group shot are my normal size... but my wife thought there should be some more dainty ones too. Two are pretty tiny and will look great with seed beads. The boro vessel is naked on the back side so the little balls won't poke at your chest if it is worn.

Have a fantastic day every body! :D

Good morning everbuddy! :D Hope all is well with everyone today!
Gina I just LOVE those snowflakes!!!
Terri just yummy!!
Briatha I can't pick a fav today!! They are all gorgeous!!
Smilely you are definatly putting a smile on my face this morning! Love all of them hearts and the vessel is really pretty! I'm sure the person who will own that will appreciate not having little balls poking their chest! :evil: !!
These I did a couple of days ago. I'm not a brown person but I really like how this first set turned out and I love this second set so much I'm going to have to make me a set with these colors one of these days! :D

Great work everyone :clap: Have been playing around with hearts for awhile, usually on the mandrel. Just tried some boro ones that will get pulled out of the kiln this morning. I guess a new project is born. Flaming Hearts Project. I try to create my work so each side can be the dominant giving you two pieces in one. Going to try some soft work today with custom frit that I made. Its a Bullseye day today :D

WOW!! This is one of the best S& T's I've ever seen! A few quick comments:
Gina- a fantastic start to the thread... those snowflakes are fabulous. you're one meticulous gal! :)
Mr. Smiley- I love those hearts. The shape is wonderful, and you've made great color choices!
Mz. Tink: As always, lovely vessels. The one with flaming handles is particularly lovely!

Here's a recent 'Talisman' bead... (crushed aventurine over enamel). This one's on the large side... 44mm tall... Happy Sunday, everyone!

WOW....absolutely stunning beads today. Gina, did you use an optic mold for the center star...if you tell me you did it by hand I'm going to throw my torch away :)
Mr. Smiley those hearts are so beautiful....and Katie I love your flowers. To all of the rest of you, I am continually inspired by the show and tell I see here. My contribution today pales in comparison.

No mold to make the star, but PLEASE do not throw your torch away!! :p
I love these colors and designs you used here!!!
If you look very closely, the points on the centers of some of the snowflakes that look like stars are made when the SECOND row of dots are applied - when they spread out, they push the first dots into points! Ta-da!

....and Tink!!!! That Flame vessel is AWSOME!!!!!!! :clap:

Thanks Gina. Rustic Canyons were made with Evil Purple and R106 Frit #1.
Thank you!! I NEVER would have guessed that was EDP! Now, where do I get some of that R106 frit? Is it like working with the raku frit?

Gina.. I've been playing with snowflakes, and when I saw yours, I just wanted to throw mine away.... they are BEAUTIFUL.

Mr. Smiley.... your work is just getting better and better and better... I love the color combination!

Wonderful EVERYONE!
