I want that little message that says I haven't posted in several weeks to go away, so here are my very latest. They are all hollow, blown beads (save for one), done in Reichenbach and Gaffer glass with lots of frits and copper and silver leaf. I finally learned how to do them off the end of a hollow mandrel thanks to Tink while she was here in Maine...thank you Tink!

Very cool! They have an ancient look to them, which I love.

I'm hoping to tomorrow. Funny how while I'm on vacation for 2 months I get less finished than when I am working full time.

OK, I give up! Which one were you in Tink's vessel class and why didn't I realize you were YOU????? I love what you've done. I worry about my vessels looking like Tink knock-offs but yours are yours... they don't remind me of Tinks. Finding your own style already. How cool is that?

Edited to add: AHA!!! Debbie!!!!!! Figured it out! Maybe there is hope for me afterall!
