Here's another batch of small ones for my little nieces to pick from. I'm pretty sure they're going to dig making anklets. I'll take pics.
Oh, I forgot - the "S" is for Sara, the "E" is for Emma and the "A" is for Amanda.

Ellen, Your nieces are going to be thrilled!

Here are a few from me....I have missed the showcases a lot. I look forward to watching this one grow.

Here are a few of mine...

---Ellen - Nice present!!! I have so many sisters, I always take a batch of beads home, and when they least are expecting it I dump them all on the floor and let them scramble for the onees they want! Such an evil brother I am!
---Michelle - Wonderful, excellent flowers!!! Looks like three per bead and three layers of petals each, so around each bead at least 12 tmes! I never would have been able to keep my stringers that organized on the one that has 2 different flowers colors in the same bead!
---Bernadette - just wonderful colors and shapes! Very hand of fortune!
---Samma - your encasing of the beads is always so perfect. Must take great patience, as it would be so terrible to smear the underlying patterns and movement.
---Ari'el - WOW - what is the length of that bead! You and a few others have made me attempt longer beads this week. Stunning!
---Michelle-Marie - wonderful hollows - great colors and look stunning with the discs!

And thanks for the idea of the heat!! That's why I have not been happy with my beads all week! Too hot! It is not supposed to be over 65 here in the summer at night, and even that should be a warm night!

But have made a few that I like and will show. The first bead had an amethyst partner, but of course I dropped it on my marble floors while photographing it and chipped one of the raised dots on the end!

Have to get a better picture of this- made on hot night after watching long news story about all the wildfires. On amber transparent with lots of layers of intense black heated until broken into fine webbing
