I've been crashing early lately so I'm starting tomorrow's showcase now. :D
The first group will become a "fun" bracelet for a friend.

Now here's my first attempt at "fake" shard. Yuck. One for the fugly bowl.

Here's my second attempt. Slightly less yucky. Ah well, it was fun.

Ellen, I just happen to like that "fugly" one! I guess one woman's trash is another woman's treasure :lol:

Here's a small set of encased raku spirals...

Ellen, I like the "fugly" one too! And the second attempt.
Jayne, I love all your raku. I was just outbid on the spiral ones you had on the bay. :crying:

Well, for me, I guess I am showing 2 finished peices, as I forgot to take photos before they were strung. Both are already sold, but have earrings to make to match the coral and turquoise. I'm also working on a rosary, complete with lampwork crucifix. I'm still working on beads for that one.

Turquoise and Coral

French Blue CIM and black (I thought it was intense black, but even with a lot of heat, it never spidered. Maybe IB doesn't react that way with CIM or maybe it wasn't IB as I thought?)

Thanks for starting early, maybe I can get to bed at a decent time tonight too!

Thanks Lizajayne! I saw your bid and knew it was you; I'm sorry you got outbid :crying:
Anyway, I like your blue bead; it sort of glows!

Wonderful stuff so far!

Here's a couple of mine... My first hollow fish, too simple, really ~ should have challenged myself more....

Wow what an awesome showcase so far. I'm so impressed. Here are mine:

http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/11-Apr-2007/38536-BREATHOFSRINGFOCAL.jpg

I'm so dissappointed in the second focal. After doing a test run of this bead, I made several to make a set. Some of them cracked, but not right away. I believe it was due the fact the Reichenbach and Rocio Kandinsky not liking each other. Eventhough I used very little Rocio K. I tried another focal using the same colors tonight minus the Rocio K because I love these colors together. Hopefully it will turn out. I used mostly Reichenbach with Moretti this time.

I have finally found some time to take some pictures this week and get some auctions happening.

These ones are a lauscha tri colour, and the pink is a bullseye oddlot...

Ayako, so beautiful. I am just starting to make marbles. I will show a few here also...and a bead. These are in boro. I am having the hardest time photographing the marbles that have the design inside. It seems my camera just can't get that depth. Any suggestions??

Wow you guys!!! Beautiful work today! I have been so busy redoing all my garden beds this spring that this is the first chance I've had to drop in and say HI!

I'm anxious to get back to my glass work full time and hopefully will have something to show by the end of the week. I've missed you all!!!!!

WOW! What a wonderful showcase!

I've been having fun with fish. A friend wanted a fish to hang in her window so I hung from fishing line :) and added some seed beads to look like bubbles.
http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/11-Apr-2007/11262-1652_Renee_mother_fish.jpg Then I decided that she needed a baby fishie to go with the Mom fish
