I'll start! Here's just a little bit of what I've been doing:

More raku, but these rounds came out a little dark. I know what I have to do next time to get more color to come out! Playing with Gaia again, and some of Val's #00 Raspberry pink! :)

02-24-2007, 12:42 AM

Yummy beads Lisi! So vibrant & colorful! Isn't raku fun? I had mine lying around for a couple years before I even knew how to use it, ha. Now I can't put it down!
Heidi, love those organics! Another favorite of mine...dichro! Ain't it fun?
I only have one focal to show tonight. And it's made of leftovers...

Lisi...perfect (as always)....lovely color combos.
Heidi...love the dichro accents in the beads!
Jayne...very urban...looks like it has windows.
Sheila...great tree...looks like my backyard.

Here's one that I made yesterday...it was like playing with glass crayons. It's Messy 96, that stuff melts like butter.

When my ship comes in - I'm planning on it being loaded with a bazillion dollars - I'm coming to spend a day with each and every one of you, just to watch you work! Amazing art.

Thanks for the nice comments!

Rachelle, lovely, lovely goddess! Love the soft feminine feeling she has.
Anastasia, another terrific butterfly! Does the scope of your imagination ever end? I sure hope not...it's sure fun to take a peek inside your head!

Jenn, I love silver blues too and what you've done with it is great!
Eileen, ooo, lots of organics today! Love yours!
Moon, it does look like you got into the crayon box! Are you one of those that likes to peel off all the paper? So alive with color...great!
Audrey, another great floral! So pretty.

http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/24-Feb-2007/94244-100_1036.jpg Beautiful beads this morning everyone. I really love the tree beads Sheila and the floral is lovely Audrey. I still can't get my florals right even though I try and try. Here are a few focals for me. Have been experimenting with silver.

02-24-2007, 11:24 AM
Here is my fun for the day

02-24-2007, 11:30 AM
Such lovely stuff today. I have some small flowers.


02-24-2007, 01:37 PM
Larkin--you're making me want to get out my silver and play! I love those!
Anastasia--beautiful dragonfly--the dragonfly is special to my DH and me, because we saw tons when we first started dating!

Here's a set where I wanted to see how different glasses would play together...I wasn't too sure about them at first, but they had a lot going on that kept me coming back to them! They won't photo right though, no matter how many things I tried!:confused: There is no "yellow" in them, even though it looks like it.

02-24-2007, 01:45 PM
Rachel those are gorgeous.What colors of glass besides ivory did you use? I 'm trying to do more experimenting with the reactive glasses as well as silver and doing more focals this week than sets.

02-24-2007, 02:05 PM
Good Morning everyone! Here I am looking at your lovely work when I should be cleaning my house! This is more fun! Keep up the great work!

Lovely work everyone!:D

02-24-2007, 08:25 PM
Thank you Larkin....three weeks on no vacumning with wood floors and 3+ dogs, the dust bunnies were taking over! I would like to have just a bit of the "anal house cleaning gene"....I was passed over, I don't have that gene!

02-24-2007, 10:46 PM
Here is a little baby dragon I made today thought he was fun...

02-24-2007, 11:25 PM
Here are some of the ones I did this afternoon with a mix of others.

Upper left is my first attempt at flowers.
Lower right is one of the hearts I made my wife for Valentines

In the back are the skunk beads that Susan had me make today.

Dichroic swirl... Woot! Didn't Break!!


Turquoise'ish Batch

Somehow or another this Dragon appeared... reminds me of an Asia poster :lol:

Michael, great beads. I do like the way that last one looks like dragon. I also really like that purple, white, turquoise one that kinda looks like an eyeball. Lots of reaction. Which purple is that?

02-25-2007, 12:42 AM
Those are great beads, Michael! Love the dragon!


02-25-2007, 01:38 AM
Very neato goodies guys!!!!!

02-25-2007, 06:16 PM

The glass I used were ivory, red copper green, intense black and raku, and then the clear for decoration. I'm doing more experimentation with these colors, and layering them in different orders--I love using them on ivory because you're never quite sure what you're going to get!

02-25-2007, 09:52 PM
I also really like that purple, white, turquoise one that kinda looks like an eyeball. Lots of reaction. Which purple is that?

It is the Moretti Violet 272... I got one rod of it in an assortment pack I bought a while ago.. and I've been using it sparingly until I get some more. :)

02-25-2007, 09:58 PM
Thanks! I think I have some of that, but I don't think I ever used it with ivory. Maybe that's the cause of the mini reaction that was produced.
