Good Morning! :D It's just about bedtime for me, but definately Wednesday! Here are two of my recent bead sets... soon to go up on eBay. The first one is called Urban Jungle - for the Friday casual days when you see a sea of denim and khaki colored pants. ;) The second set is called Amber Elegance. It was my first attempts at playing with silver foil and making silvered ivory stringer. ~Juliet

A quick post before running off to bed. This is ragu frit on Lausha clear, rolled in pixie dust and then stringer clear trail.

Good morning everyone,

It's not quite midnight here yet, but by the time I get around to posting tomorrow it will be afternoon.

Great beads Juliet, your pictures are so crystal clear.

Here is a new design for me that I've been working on for awhile. I am really happy with the way they turned out. :clap:

Juliet, Katharine, and Sheryl: What lovlies!!!
Juliet: I'm especially fond of the amber and black set... fabulous shapes, excellent first try with silvered stringer!

Here's two recent sets... earring/focal sets for "wishes" from a customer... I almost never do finished jewelry other than simple wire-worked pendants, so these are *small* step outside my norm...The turquoise set is a "Talisman" series bead, with crushed aventurine, enamel, and stringer. The green set is all frit... (edit: the photos are a little dark, sorry- they were taken on the fly)Have a great day!

Lovely beads everyone! Here is one set I pulled out the kiln this morning.
It's bullseye ivory, silver leaf and translucent teal, with neo-lavender flowers.

Here is a bracelet that I finished for my Supervisor's 2 year old granddaughter. He liked the jewelry that I made for my Step-mom so much that he had to have one. He hasn't checked yet to see if it is going to be long enough, anyone know the average size of a 2 year old's wrist?

Juliet ~ great job with the silvered ivory!
Catharine ~ I don't know what Ragu frit is (:)) but it sure is nice looking!
Cheryl ~ those are gorgeous!!! It's like a painting leaped off it's canvas and onto your beads!
Margartez ~ always love your beads!
Lorraine ~ those are great!
Tara ~ very cute. Just make sure they are aware of the choking hazard or you could be liable!
RMG ~ nice!
Katie ~ that top one looks like it's got something hidden in that bubble that makes me want to peak!

Here is my current set 'Snozberries'. No matter how hard I tried I couldn't capture the true color of this set. And it's hard to describe as well,
it's a peachy, pinky, salmony color. And I used the Zoozii tile press, which became one of my favorites yesterday!

These aren't today's beads but I haven't had time to post anything for so long I wanted to play. I have been looking but haven't had much time to actually make anything lately. I had a day a bit back where I got back into the eyes and that was really fun. They are all horse eyes and have a horizontal pupil.

Nothing spectacular for me - these are for my girls HeadStart teachers and some of the support staff for Christmas.

The blocks represent the HeadStart logo, and motto Upward and Equal (http://www.heartlandheadstart.org/upward.htm) - and yes, there are chill marks in the blocks. I couldn't get them out without ruining the shape! LOL!

I'm feeling the need to acquire some tangerine glass after seeing all these neat colors today. I love the S&Ts, everyone's beads are so inspirational.

Katie-- Love that orange bead!! Gorgeous!
Mr. Smiley-- Oh my! That marble is stunning!
Amaya-- Beautiful hearts..the first one with the flower is my fave!
Deb-- Love your funky little flower! The colors are gorgeous!
Brad-- Jaw-dropping face beads :D Way cool!!!

Here's a couple of my latest. My hubby was on vacation last week and I had trouble convincing him that I wasn't! LOL! Which, of course, meant I couldn't get on the computer much, but I'm finally back on Ebay as of last night. YEA!

Mr. Smiley, all I can say is WOW! :clap: How did you ever do that? Are those little air bubbles at the end of the spikes? Do you still have the marble?

Oops, I posted these on the wrong day. Here they are again.

I LOVE everyone entries today. What nice beads. May I have them please? LOL

Here are mine....

Mr.Smiley
12-15-2004, 09:51 PM
They are little air bubbles and NO... sadly, I sold it on Ebay a while back. I told PyroArron that it was my first and only of that style. I nailed it the first time and was afraid to make another because I didn't want to be disapointed. - LOL

I did some others kind of along the same line... Poking and then imploding... I'll post more pics of those if I can dig them off my hard drive or an old burned CD. If I get feeling better and the cold wind passes, maybe I'll do some more marbles soon. It's been a while. Thanks for all the compliments. You are too kind. :)

Take care - :wave:

Nice marble for sure! Lots of nice glass today. I've had a second day of dibilitating vertigo, no glass today! Maybe tomorrow.

What a great S&T! I'm very impressed not only with the beautiful glass but also the quality of many of the photos. B-E-U TIFUL (I know, the A is not in there, it's a phonetic thing)
