Future anklets from me.

Ellen - You use such cheery colors. Love 'em!
Here's one from me based on my memory of the historic carousel in Indy. Each year, we would go and see all the fresh painted horses, flying pigs and puprle elephants.

Ellen, cute beads! Lovely colors!
Samma, I like the delicate color.
puck, the deep color is so chic!
Anastasia, I always love your tree bead.
Donni, beautiful sets. I love both of them.

Here is my wisteria bead.

Elen - I always like the variety and cheerfulness of your beads!

Samma - wonderful soft colors, like a dream

Dany Puck- wonderful bicone - mine always look like ice cream cones that have fallen on the sidewalk and are stepped on

Anastasia - have you ever made an ugly bead? Perfectly wonderful, as usual.

Donni - curious about flower set. Do you shape the bead first and then do final flowers. I also have some flatter flower beads below. And the colors and finish in that second set are fantastic!

So here is more of my Foolish stuff - not made this week, but earlier in the spring. But just now getting it all photgraphed since I finally put together a website.

First some basic tiger beads and fish scale beads - tiger beads were my first time using SIS and now I make a huge batch of the stringers every week.

Some flower beads that I spend a long time on, many layers of petals, and then mash the h**; outa'em. I call them Monet's garden

Its 2:30 AM, and time to curl up ;with my spooky novel and some caramels and drift off to sleep! - Michael

Ayako - you snuck in on me.

WONDERFUL wisteria bead!!!!!!
My wisteria is just about finished blooming. It is amazing how well you did the flowers, and even the foliage is remarkably accurate! I am envious of you skills!

Louise - you beads put me in a very moderne mode, like eames era from late 50's. Very fun and stylish!

Samma - I think I saw a flying pig on one of those beads! Very nice
Yea! Dany's back in town with her most-famous bicones!!!!!!!!!!!
Ana - those beads are "hot, hot, hot"
Donni - that second set is wonderful; love 'em both but that second one is "yowza!"
Ayako - I don't know who does flowers better than you; they're fabulous
Michael - after producing such a beautiful group of beads, I guess you deserve a bunch of caramels
Louise - great tubes - wonderful dot placement, you must have a steady hand
