I've been patiently waiting for the date to change, but I realized it already did on the East Coast, so here is my contribution for the night! A trio of beads made with Gaffer that I'm using in a magazine submission (I'll give you all the juicy details if it's accepted!)

Have a great Thursday, everyone!

Ohhh I love that blue! Here's a set I have up on eBay. New Moretti Light lavender blue and ink.

Cole---I love the Gaffer beads.
Jessica---Wonderful beads--purple are my favorite color to work with...I have had to hide my glass to work with other colors. ;)

Here is a rose I made for Tucson. Haven't been able to torch yet this week due to being beaten by this cold :crying:

Have a terrific Thursday. May you create many beautiful beads. :wave:

Gaffer cane makes me sigh... just beautiful!!!

Is that PINK opaline? Bullseye?

I made these yesterday with the new Lauscha pink...

We have a couple of vessels and a couple of sets today. I posted 2 of these pics yesterday, but they got buried in the new way WC shows replies.

The red is Lauscha. The rest is Effetre.

WOW :D what a great S&T. I've haven't posted in a long time so forgive the thread hogging. I got an Oxy. concentrator for Xmas and a minor torch so I am having to relearn everything, especially trying to find the sweet spot for my stringer work.
Ode to Anne is of course for Anne Ricketts fellow Austinite who made this color combo famous :wink2:

01-13-2005, 10:52 AM
WOW!!!! So many beautiful beadies today! Nice work everyone!! :clap:

Here are some new pillow beads. "Amber Galaxy" is amber morretti with Cinnamon Spice frit from Glass Diversions made with my zoozii pillow press. "Elephant Tiles" are etched (you might remember seeing them posted unetched a week or so ago). It's mostly morretti glass with some Lauscha white, made with my zoozii tile press. "Blueberry Mist" is blue translucent Morretti glass with "Blueberries & Cream" frit from Glass Diversions. ~Juliet

Great work everyone. I cant choose a favorite, I like them all :clap: :clap:
I have been playing with my mask beads and grouped them into a "Family Tree" Neckpiece. Have a wonderful day Rosie the wildwoman :wave:

01-13-2005, 01:11 PM
I am posting twice w/in a week! Somebody stop me! I rarely post in S&T...

but I PROMISE...I drool over it every day.

Here is some super simple ones: I can't get the purple set to show color right, but it is just amethyst, with new violet stringer.

BTW, I used Zoozii's groovy dual circletab square tab press.

p.s. Jenn (Foof)...loving that pink, tell me your mixture..... :D

01-13-2005, 01:24 PM
What a great S&T today! Perfect for inspiration...I need to get on the torch today! Rosie, I LOVE your “family tree” necklace! How fun is that going to be to wear to your next family reunion! :p

I am trying to get better about getting things on ebay again and updating my website...that is my new years resolution! So I’ve been making sets again and then I got into focals. Sorry about being a bit of a thread piggy, but I was just having so much fun with this design!
Have a great day!

Judy :cat:

Everyone have a great day...I am gonna crawl back in bed and try and clear my head...after I get my auctions up.
