I used to post a lot of pictures of my work and when I moved, I quit. SO, my title of my thread I'm Back is just that. I'll show more of my work now that I have nothing else to do! So here you go, my very own thread hogging!:D And around 8:45 pm ET I'll also be back on the bay again. Said I wasn't going to, but how can I resist? LOL!

Which camera do you use? Do you have any sort of special lighting set-up...I keep trying..but my macro will only go down to 8"...and I have to be fruegal.

Your beads are awesome...I love the applied florals...you are so much better than me.....you are wonderful. :clap: :clap: :clap:

Great work Lenda!! I will be watching for more. I am glad to finally see some more of your work. Good luck on the bay. It is treating me pretty good right now. I am sure you will be happy your back.

Hi Mary Jo! Thank you, you almost made me blush girl!:D I bought a Sony DSC S85. Unfortunately I think it's been discontinued, but it's a fabulous camera and I usually take pics about 6" from my subject and then zoom. You might try focusing it when you're 8" from your object, then just move the object closer to the camera. It usually stays in focus to a point I've found. PPh, there's a new Nikon with exchangable lenses that I'm eyeing! But it will be a long time before I need a new one, I'm really happy with mine. You might check Ebay or something for it though.:D

Hi Kaye. And thank you too. Nope, that's not dichro. Just ivory and silver. It did get very metallic down at the bottom of the bead, don't ask how cause I don't remember!:D

My goodness, Lenda, your beads are absolutely beautiful! I can't wait to see more!!

Hey Paul, I was just over laughing my butt off over your newest auction!!!:D Thanks, I know I've got a building block again with Ebay, I've been off for a year and it's a struggle to get back on and be consistant! :D

Gigi, thank you. :D

So you will be showing your stuff in the S&T more often now?? Good! I've missed that! Love the beads!

Oh, and I especially love the floral beads you make that have a cobalt base! Gotta get me one of those some day! ;) :D
