This Goddess is releasing a butterfly...a new beginning kind of thing....

Ellen, great job. I especially like the red one in the middle on the second photo.
Sheila, beautiful as always, what a great gesture on this one!
Bernadette, your hands are so pretty. I love the starfish!
Mary Beth, so pink and sparkly! Love 'em!

I played with Halloween colors. Pretty basic stuff, but I love the little witch hat! Turned many into jewelry tonight.

Gesh, these showcases get better and better each day!

My gf from Florida was visiting and wanted some Godesses so I made these for her. Those are not cracks in the blue but rather swirls. The left is suppose to be Alabaster pink but I burned it terribly, the blue is Bullseye Robin's Egg I believe and the left one is EDP. I wanted all the sheen so it turned out just right!

She's gone back home now with the hopes of selling them and ordering more!

Am, Fern is a beauty! :heart:

I dig the Fall Pantones~ they are a nice balance of organic and bright that offers a versatile palette.

Moretti special yellow is the perfect lemon curry, but Vetrofond Ochre reacts with EDP and Rubino as a close second. The other colors are all pretty obvious in the effetre/vetrofond realm, but I haven't figured out how to achieve the Burnt Ocre shade just yet. Ask Cinnamon is a darker shade if worked high in the flame, but that is as close as I have gotten.

I've pulled Carafe, Stargazer, and Cashmere Rose from Lauscha.

And of course separately Bullseye is great for the Stargazer, Opaque Chili pepper, Lemon Curry, Green Moss, and Dusk shades.

I am going to play with some frit to widen the color values as soon as I get through my special order list. So many toys, not enough time. :p
