Trish! I LOVE long beads...
Ginny-those dot beads are great! POP POP!
Ellen-YOU are on to something. Those looked etched too. the one on the right is my fav!
Mixed Nut- You have a mix going! That is a great torso! You are a sculptor.
I can see you making some amazing work! Keep at it.

It is inspired by the oldest Venis known to man...

Ginny - Gorgeous combination - so classy and elegant!
Ellen - FUN beads - love the etched transparents!
Cecilia - Great beads - love the male torso!
Sheila - She's downright FABULOUS!
Patsy - Another beauty! Have you thought of selectively etching some of the panels?

Here's a mini-set of larger donuts made from Translucent Ivory...

No I haven't, but that's a good idea. Should have known you'd mention something like that you're the "etching queen". lol

Well, I can't take credit for this, but I wanted to post it here to share with you - this is a vessel that was made by Lisa Rippee. This guy has so much character I can't stand it!!! Hope this doesn't break the WC rules, but I thought he was worth sharing.


06-20-2007, 08:27 AM
Whoo - that tongue just woke me up...lol Cool!

Beautiful show as always!

Always a beautiful way to start my day; looking and getting inspired by the daily showcase!

Val, did you use enamel over the base bead? It really makes your flowers stand out!

Sheila M
06-20-2007, 11:49 AM
Naos! I LOVE Those beads! Translucent ivory! I have never seen that...
Anastasia! Those a re great. The beads you make with the random shapes; very nice.

You all always knock my socks off with your wonderful beads! I love looking and lurking...

I've been trying for the last two days to post a photo... no luck. I use the uploader.... find photo.... the photo shows up, click to add..... NO photo :(

06-20-2007, 02:21 PM
Trying again to post a bead picture. Sorry for the focus. Still a total newbie at posting pics and making beads. I lurk a lot and I am in awe of what I see here.

Thanks Barbara. No, there's no enamel in the beads. They have a coral base, silver, and then clear frit, which all turned a dark brown with silver veins.

06-20-2007, 03:08 PM
A beautiful show and tell today, all around.

Ellen, I am so happy to see this new style and design of yours, it's a bit lighter and more transparent based. Great work...keep going with it!


06-20-2007, 06:09 PM
What a great showcase today! I can't wait for the next generation of computers that will project the images in a way that I can touch and feel all this wonderful art. So much of the joy in this craft is also in the handling of the glass!

Trish - wonderful bead! I would pass out holding my breath when removing that one from the mandrel.
Ginny - love those geometric patterns
Ellen - love the soft red color in the first one
Cecilia - great sculptures. BTW, your Etsy banner is GREAT
Sheila - wonderful interpretation of that Venus!
Patsy - your beads and finished works are always so stunning!
Naos - the pictures make me want to touch and feel those beauties
Anastasia - GREAT shapes and color combination
Pinarhakim - I really like that color combination used. Does not look evil to me!
Sylvie - now that's more evil! how totally and wonderfully strange!
Val - if they still had empresses in China, you would be the court jeweler!
Annie - very magical!
Ajere - great little shell! Post more of your work!

06-20-2007, 06:22 PM
Wonderful beads everyone!!:clap: :clap: Anastasia, wow, absolutely breath-taking!
I've these to share;

06-20-2007, 07:24 PM
Beautiful beads everyone. I hadn't been torching for awhile but have gotten back to it. Here's a couple mandela style beads from me.

06-20-2007, 11:05 PM
VERY impressive guys! I am in awe!

06-20-2007, 11:55 PM
Well, at least it's not shockinawe! LOL! Sorry, I just couldn't help it.:lol:

06-21-2007, 04:30 AM
Judy, Sheila, Michael, Rachelle...thanks a lot!
OMG, Judy...that tongue is scary...lo


06-21-2007, 06:21 PM
Thanks Micheal I am pretty darned proud of that little banner. Seems like it takes forever to do those things. Maybe it is because I am not so great with computers.
