Samma those are cool. I love the matching zebra colors what a great idea.

Trish that focal is cool. I love the way the terra and ivory look so antique like. great bead.

Standing ovation to all the lovely work here today!!!! ...LOL

Gotta say, re: Lisa's Pink Flamingo Bead...Lovely bead by the way..

Seems we are on the same wave length..I have been trying to do one for about a week. My mothers 80th B day is coming up and I am having a party supply place deliver 80 pink flamingos for the front lawn...snort....so I thought I would make her a pink flamingo bead. Not an easy task....so GREAT JOB!!!!!

Hi Guys,
Thanks for the kind remarks about the parrot and flamingo. I have only attempted a parrot about 2 years ago and thought I would give it a try since I have been asked numerous times. It was not easy for me. I am going to have to make them more often to get better. I was excited though that it sold right away.
How cool about that birthday present. 80 flamingos, she is going to be in for some fun!!

My mothers 80th B day is coming up and I am having a party supply place deliver 80 pink flamingos for the front lawn...snort

Diana...be sure to take (and share!) photos of 80 flamingos in one yard. What a riot!

Absolutely stunning showcase, everyone!!:clap: :clap:
