Woah Ellen, I love the feathered one too!
And Lydia, stunning as always. I feel like yours are pulled out of rich tapestries!

I have a finished one today. Copper Green, Ivory, and transparent purple. I combined it with rainbow flourite and sterling silver. The flourite matches much better in person.

Wow great stuff already!
I have to admit, I have lurked lately, haven't posted in a long while.

Here is a set from me, and I am learning wire wrap, so my first pendant. Made with my own lampwork cab.

Thanks everyone. Funny thing about that feathered bead - it gave me fits. The base is, I think, white alabastro and it immediately turned sooty-gray. So obviously, I had to cover it with something so I grabbed my favorite stuff: encased stringer. The stringers got lumpy and I did a lot of pushing around with my brass "pusher" and it still looked creepy so I dragged out my trusty 1/8 mandrel that my shop buddy "pointed" for me.
Ya see? It's true - "every cloud has a silver lining."
Ashton - your beads really are regal looking
LJ - very classy necklace and the matching looks great to me
Am - take two simple ingrediants and put them together = way cool affect
Debby - your bead could be flying through space - love the color combo
Heidi - OMG! The colors and shine are wonderful together
Helen - I'll need to see that pic again come January just to remind that flowers do exist
Lori - I believe you've outdone yourself, my dear. He/she is darling!!!
Ana - are you sure you've never lived in MI? That looks just like the forest outside of town in March.

Been off the torch since December working on music. So glad to be back! I've missed the beautiful showcases.

Ellen - wow, your work seems to have changed a lot since my last visit. I really like the new designs. I like that look of beadwork around the bead...almost like the tiny beads you see in native american woven crafts.
Lydia - great sets, I love the rich colors
Liza - nice combination of glass and natural stones.
Naos!!! - I can still spot your beads before I even read the name. Beautiful as ever.
Debby - Great shape. That green really pops against the black.
Heidi - Very nice colors, creamy and dreamy.
Helen - Amazing florals. Makes me wish I was a girl or a drag queen so I could get away with wearng one of your pieces, LOL.
Lori - Wow! The stringers you made to do that are awesome. The final effect is amazing.
Anastasia - I can also spot your designs without even reading your name. I love this tree focal.
Katie - those blue spacers really pop against the organics. Your silversmithing work makes me jealous!!!
Tom - I love that first piece, though all of them are lovely as usual
Kitty - great sets, love the colors in the blue one
Gina - stunning depth in your set...your encasing rocks
Val - elegant work!
