Here are some really happy beads, hollow blown ones, from me with the beautiful vetrofond poppy and sherbet...http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/03-Aug-2007/56435-IMG_2492.JPG
And a bigger blown bead of cobalt and vetrofond crystal green with Aion all over it:http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/03-Aug-2007/56435-IMG_2450.JPG http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/03-Aug-2007/56435-IMG_2466.JPG I like the dark mystery of the first shot but the bead is actually a little brighter, like the second photo. Aion is really a cool glass. I made a blown bead with it and it cracked, so I melted it and pulled it into stringer. It went from ambers to pale champagnes with electric blue streaks...who knew?

Great showcase! Did Jayne ever answer yesterday's question about where she finds all those old keys? Or is it a secret?!

Me Jayne

I'm sorry, Nalynn :o ...my bad! I get them from antique shops, rummage & garage sales, friends, ebay, etc. I'm always on the lookout! :heart:

08-05-2007, 08:13 PM
Thanks, Jayne! Of course I would NEVER dream of copying your idea. I was mainly curious as to how you found all of those keys.
