Come one, come all, and show your Beads! Can't get enough of that shiny (& matte, too) stuff!
Here's a new Garden Tab from me, not too new. I could have made this 2 years ago, eh? Ever think your beads are so similar as your old work? Can't help it, just love botanics. Love, Helen

Super yummy work today you guys!!!! Lots of "autumn" in the showcase air the past few days........it's fun to see the colors, textures and themes transform as the year progresses!!

Here is a very different one for me. This is an auction donation I did for Panda's Unlimited to help raise funds for Mei Lan's first birthday at Zoo Atlanta.
She is a doll of a panda and I wanted to do something that could hopefully bring in a bit of money for them.

The markings in the butterfly wings are little matching pandas. I did a lot of work with frit on this one and am glad it's done. Very tedious.

Have a wonderful Thursday everyone.

Thanks evryone!
Sandra, you don't cease to amaze me w/ your work! I'm sure your Butterfly will score huge for the birthday party!
Tom and Karen, your Shells are the best!
Shari, very colorful Autumnscape!
Anastasia, awesome Lovlies! They look like shards.
Harriet, we much have been on the same wave length, but your colors are so much bolder! And flatter & matter..heehee, just like a painting.
Lisi, you are a Bead Machine with unbelievable consistancy!
Trish, very creative idea realized!
Sam, play on! Love your Chamber. Think we could twist those bleeds into swirls? I'm hungry to learn to make murrini, too...butterflies & such. Know any good books?
Michelle-Marie, Your Hollows so rock! Have you ever used one of those tiny tube mandrels with a hole in it?I have one, but it gets mixed up w/ my regs, so I lose it.:) Bet yours would be so huge w/ it, eh?
Gina, your Encasing is supperb! I see no bubbles. Do yuu flatten it all before you encase? I would have LOVED to encase my garden bead, but it would have a hundred bubbles.
Debi, your chainy bracelets remind me of Pandoras...chunky lovely!
Ellen nice trailing there. I never have learned to do that.:)
Neil, nice grapey looking Hollows! Can I grow grapes on a barbwire fence? You should know.
Sheila, love your bas relief and contrast.
Bernadette, please tell us about liquid silver? It's lovely! & your silverwork, too!
Love, Helen
