Nothing special; just making some small ones out of the ASK glass I got from Wale last week. They also gave me a baggy with some unlabled glass.

Ellen, you've been busy. That's a nice string of beads you've got there.


07-19-2007, 11:20 PM
I'm with you Ellen! I'm off to hit the sack, too.

Some happy mushroom houses I've been working on. The third one is supposed to be a haunted mushroom house. He needs some work.

They are cute Ellen!
Gorgeous colours Belinda!
OMG cissypissy! Those mushies are too adorable!!

I just have some play beads. Sat down and made one small focal bead for a custom order, then continued playing rather than making anything specific lol

First the custom order, simple silvered ivory and frit bead

Just some gravity swirled frit beads

And a little set, the oval is a hollow bead

I'm trying out non-white backgrounds, what does everyone think?

Ellen you are always working on sets of beads you stay very busy.
Belinda I like the way you flattened clear dots on each side.
Ciissy what great mushroom houses. And the haunted hause look great can not wait to see the revised version.

Here is a organic focal from me,

Belinda...LOVE your beads....the colors are yummy & the design is wonderful....

Cissy...Those are very happy mushroom houses....delightful...

Anne...What fun "play" beads...Is that frit Tutti Frutti?

Mary Beth...GREAT mesh beads! They are all really nice...I especially like the heart...wonderful color & you placed the mesh perfectly.....all great beads...

Belinda - OOOOOh, what a beauty! Love the clear, flat dots on the focal!
CP - The mushroom houses are DELIGHTFUL! So creative!

Bernadette - Yummy! I love B, R, and SIS together!
Mary Beth - LOVE the silver mesh on black beads! I've done two of my bears that way and people just LOVE the mesh!
Kristina - Your white dragon is so cute - love the base bead on the one, too!

T&K - The shell is GORGEOUS!
Lisi - Those last ones are TDF! Very foresty and fall!

Here's a custom order I did based upon a Lady Death comic book cover...I went with the hair texture and used the B,R,W and G colors from the illustration.

Here's the cover:

And here's the beads. :)

07-20-2007, 11:25 AM
Gosh, sorry the cover pic is so big! I'll go back and shrink that down...

It's been so long since I've posted and came to the Show & Tell. I'm such a fool!

All the bead are fantastic. I can't wait to hit the torch again.

I love the mushrooms. The first one reminds me of my kindergarten classroom. It was shaped like a mushroom!

Amber, you are too cool! I love those beads based on the illustration.
