Hi everyone, I have been mia due to surgery and just now getting back into torching again.

On August 1 2007, a disaster happened in Minneapolis Minnesota, my hometown. A major bridge 35W collapsed.

We are still receiving reports daily and at current the death toll is at 7, Many many were severely injured, one still remains in critical condition. Our hearts and prayers go out to the victims and the families and friends of the victums. I have made 9 sets of beads which the winnings being donated to a special fund that has been set up for them. Thank you so very very much

Ellen, Good to see you start the show again even if it is with one little old bead. Looks kind of Halloweenish to me.

Jayne, One of these days I'm going to have one of your keys.

Wilma, What a wonderful gesture, that bridge accident was such a tragedy and I keep reading about them finding more bodies. You can't go back, but it could have been prevented. Gorgeous sets, love the second one.

Diana, I like your one little bead too. Very refreshing.

Wilma, THere you are again with more pretties for a great cause. Hope they do well.

Bernadette, What a great set of friends!

Speaking of little beads, here are some pretty little black shells I've been working on. 13 mm.

Ellen - Your bead is staring at me with those big green eyes! :eek: ;) :D
Jayne - Beautiful key and bead! Noce color in that one!
Wilma - Glad to know the surgery went well. The links in your signature are not working right now. Love that last set in the first group and the green with silver mesh!
Diana - Whirpool is great! Is that a silver droplet?
Bernadette - Very cute - love the contrast between the Blonde and the Redhead! :)
Maggie - I like your style - subtle and not overly holiday!
Annie - Ooooh, I love this bead. The slight glow to the background underneath the "moon" - it's pretty realistic!
Moon - You have green staring eyes in your beads, too! :)

Here's a new Tree Totem...let me know what you think since it's different from the others...

Jayne - you're certainly on a role, chica. Love the color.
Wilma - glad you're back making beads again; it must feel wonderful. Your beads are great - good luck raising some $$$$ for the bridge victims.
Diana - I think whirlpool is a perfect name for that very coolio bead
Bernadette - OMG!!! That is the coolest ever!!! I love it! "Friends"
Maggie - I love the black shells - what a neat idea to do them in black!
Annie - you can stay in your moon phase forever as far as I concerned - they're wonderful.
Moon - I could spot your beads across a crowded room - soooo distinctive!
Am - "Pure" is a perfect name - that's just what it looks like
Jackie - what a fun froggie - makes me smile
Natty - I don't care what you call those "thingies", they're great, nice work
Harriet - OMG, OMG, OMG!!! I am IN LOVE with that floral. Stay on that path for a while, eh? I want to see more.
Mary - love the whale bead; the colors are a perfect match for the ocean

Have a great day.

Thanks for the compilments everyone, sure does a girl good to hear.

WOW, all the new lovelies listed and me with no time to comment on each.

SPECTACULAR!!!! Everyone....Loving it all.

Amber that is one dot of silverwire, yes. I don't know why that happened as I had actually put the silver dots under the encasing of blue trans. For some reason one dot made its way to the surface and poked out just a bit....funny thing...trying to escape i suppose...LOL

Wonderful work everyone! If I had to pick a favorite...hmmmm Love the Tree Amber and the Whale and the Ruffles...ah hell I love them all.

TGIF.....
