I'm sure you have all been anxiously awaiting the debut of the beads made from last Friday's challenge. Well, wait no more. Here are the LaraBeads resulting from her color entry of transparent purple, transparent lime, periwinkle and gray. :D

And...and close up of Jiley's focal. This is what is possible when your coffee is 1/2 decaf. I absolutly cannot relate to that. What's the point if it isn't REAL coffee? I don't do dots, BTW.

Nice! Great job Lara for coming up with that 'special' color combination, and Lauri and Jiley for executing it so well:clap:

They're beautiful!

Geez Lauri - you did that standing on a bicycle? Way to go!

Seriously, a truly FINE set of beads! :clap:

Beautiful beads...did I mention I was thinking of changing my name to Larabeads?

My color combos are so boring...rarely more than two colors..this set is awesome.

Thanks for sharing,

Yowza wowza! Those turned out fabulous! Maybe we should do a Project everyone is to make a set of 5 beads, each unique, in a particular set of colors. We could also expand it to other art forms (just remove the 5 bead part for them...) What do ya think? I'd love to see a multimedia project...

There ya go, B2 - start a new project! Sounds like fun. Maybe we should try that gawd-awful combo that Renee suggested... :D

07-10-2002, 04:42 PM
Shirley - I did consider that...very briefly! I bet if we pick 3 nice colors and allowed black, white and clear, the variations in what everyone did would be amazing...


07-10-2002, 04:46 PM
Post a project!!! It sounds like a fun challenge!

07-10-2002, 04:53 PM
OK, I'll come up with a project and write it up this afternoon...

Go ahead Shirls. Razzle us-dazzle us with your amazing ability to combine never attempted color combos. It may be the beginning of a new trend.

Lauri, Beautiful beads!!! As always!

B2, the bead project sounds like fun!

Oh gasp! A personal challenge - how will I sleep tonight? :eek:

OK, Lauri, but I won't be able to get to it for awhile - you know, the house guest thing. (great excuse, eh?) :D

Nice color combo. Lauri, you and Jiley are lean, mean (not), beadmaking machines!!:clap:

07-10-2002, 09:14 PM
Beautiful Beads. I also love all of your Boro beads.

07-10-2002, 09:45 PM
Absolutely glorious! What a great job.

07-10-2002, 11:21 PM
JUST WONDERFUL. Gee, who would think that I would like them?!? Hee hee!

Jiley and Lauri, beautiful as usual.

:D :clap: :D - love those smilies


PS - I get to be LaraBeads:p

Hi all. This week I received the beautiful beads from Lauri and Jiley. I LOVE THEM. Below is a picture. Aren't they wonderful?! I'm glad that they liked my color combo and I love what you two did with it. I guess I'll have to try it now. Thanks again for this beautiful set. The colors don't like quite right, my scanner usually does a better job, oh well. Hope this will give you a good idea.
