Hi everyone!! I've been lurking around here for awhile now and I've posted a couple of times here and there, so I thought I'd say hello to everyone offically. I really like this forum so much more than another I won't mention. The attitude is so positive here!! I just love that. :D Everyone is so helpful and supportive!

Anyway, here's a blowup of my tinyhead pic so you can see what I'm currently working on. I've been experimenting alot with silver foil and fuming and I'm just loving it. What do you think? I would love some feedback! :)

Happy torchin'

Welcome Paulette... and nice bead ! :clap:

Paulette, what a pretty bead! I love the color contrast between the transparent turquoises with silver foil and the coral color! I'm happy you posted a larger version of the tinyhead- you couldn't see this gorgeous detail otherwise!

Paulette, Welcome!:cat:

Glad you joined us, and gave us an enlarged detail of that gorgeous bead. Wow... what depth! I love your control of the colors too, very nice.

More photos, please!

Best, Valorie

Hiya, Paulette, glad to see you over here! Great bead, too - lots of depth in that one. And the colors are terrific! Thanks for the larger picture, and please do post more pix!

07-10-2002, 02:31 PM
Your wish is my command Valorie! :D I've got tons of pictures, so here's another one. Thanks everyone for the warm welcome and all of the wonderful compliments!!

OK- so if you need a home for either bead, Paulette, call me. I'll happily adopt them! The second bead is just as pretty! Great job!

Here's one of my black lace beads. I just love this technique!!!

I'm in LOVE with your second one....they're all nice, but the second one made me catch my breath.... beautiful!!
And welcome!

Here's one of my most recent encased florals. I just love how this one turned out. My best encased floral yet, I think. I'm going to have a hard time letting this one go.

Margaret....All of the other beads I posted already have homes, but this floral is in need of one. It's on Ebay right now. ;)

Here's one more pic. Another black lace bead. This one is one of my fave color combos, soft violet and lime. I could post more, but I should probably get back to the torch before it just gets unbearably hot in my studio.

Thanks again for all of the compliments! :D Jennifer, that second one was especially hard to let go of. Especially since I've had hard a hard time duplicating that exact same effect. I just gotta make another one like that to keep for myself!;)

Beautiful beads Paulette...I'm lusting after that third one...the black webbed one, gorgeous!

Margaretz your floral bead is also beautiful..thanks for sharing!

Thanks so much Kathy! I love the lace effect on transparent glass. It gives the bead such depth! BTW, the floral one is actually mine too.

Thanks again

P.S. Couldn't resist posting one more pic :D

Welcome to the light :D Your first bead was very nice and then they just got better. Your lace is my pick if I had to pick. Good work on the floral, I hope to get up to Heidi's island this year and have her help me on my florals.
Mike, getting over another boards blues/rules, E

Thanks Mike!! I know what you mean about getting over another boards blues ;)

07-10-2002, 03:09 PM
Oh boy!...we love seeing your beads.

Wow, that 'soft violet with lime, and black lace' is stunning...they are all great! Fantastic beads Paulette, and great photos to boot!

Yeah, you better get back to the torch so we can see more treasures out of the kiln.

Best, Valorie:cat:

:o Oops..sorry! It's still a beautiful bead...I'm sure Margaretz would love to claim it!


07-10-2002, 03:40 PM

Wow, beautiful beads! I think my fave are the lace ones though! Welcome to WC! :clap:

All of your work is exceptional...the third one would be a very nice addition to my collection.;)

Okay Paulette, now that I've lifted my jaw up off the floor, I'll say welcome and thanks for those lovely pics. Glad you "delurked."
