I have been having a lot of fun playing with new frit colors, and all of these I got from Valorie Cox. :D

I love them all! This bunch is on Uroboros white:

From top to bottom is: Wild Roses, Gypsy Skirt, Groovy Swirl, Georgia Peach, Violet Fire.

These two mixes she does not have a name for them yet. I think the raspberry and blue ones look like Mixed Berries! Yummy colors!

Val sure has some beautiful frit! I think that last one, the yellowish one looks like sunshine to me. Nice!

They are gorgeous gorgeous colours. But can I ask, how come you made seven in each set? Just curious to know your logic.

Lisi, they are beautiful. I love your frit beads, 'cause they are always just perfect!

I am also a frit-aholic. I am sure there is a support group for it. I have about 40 jars of frit, from everywhere!

Here is my latest set made with Spiral Glass Design's "Umbria". It's a mix of green and orange glass and green adventurine for sparkle. But let me tell you, I didn't get anything like what they had on their website. Oh, and mine are on a base of clear uroboros.

Oh wait, I do have another one. Also made with frit from SGD. I forgot about these because my sister (whom has been living with me for 2 months now) has already claimed them for herself. :)

SGD color "Cracked Ice" (also not the same results as their web photo, but still love 'em!) Again, about 4 layers of frit on Uroboros clear.

Most people use 7 in a bracelet, and I have no clue how many people use in a necklace. I don't make jewelry, but I have done polls to get the preferred numbers from jewelry designers.

Ebay is a fickle market, and you have to be careful or your stuff isn't going to sell. People are always looking for a bargain, and the bigger sets never sell as well as the small sets, IMHO. :)

Thanks for the tip Lisi! I've had my humble HH for two years now, and i'm only just about to batch anneal my first lot of beads! How cowardly am I?! I'm lucky enough to also have learnt silversmithing, so I'll be trying to sell a bit of both on ebay. I can't share any pictures yet coz my camera isn't good enough and it'll be another three 'til i get the one i put on lay by. You guys call it lay away???
