Well, tonights offerings to the beady Gods is still in the kiln....so how about last night stuff.
Fish Dance. I found that many coastal tribes would dance with the fishes and nets to insure a good winters harvest of smoked fish. And there they were on my beads.

[email protected]! Nice work, everyone! :D

Here's something a little different coming from me. I've made these shapes before, like with my "raku splash" beads, but these are rounds that got..well..squished.


08-14-2007, 01:25 AM
WOW you guys are fast!

Such a beautiful sight to see just before bed! I will be having nice dreams tonight. Wonderful work everyone!

Sorry no time to comment on each, just too tired and my eyes and fingers just are not co-operating...LOL

Mine, a looong bead, my first on my little HH. Just shy of 2 INCHES long...woohoo


Sleep tight everyone and Good Morning to those that are just waking up!

08-14-2007, 02:01 AM
Feeling a little shy today cause I'm pretty impressed with everything above me.
Trish - Your fish looks real. Wet looking. If I come to your house will you teach me how?
For today a 2 piece flower. Rubino & cream. Did I tell you I have a love hate relationship with rubino????? That colour does my head in.
Oh that photo looks a little grainy. never mind.
Have a bright day & I hope the glass fairies look upon everyone today.
