Good morning!

Think Iīm going to apply for the position of the official thread starter here...lol;-)...

A focal from me (yes, thatīs one single bead, not 2):


And I cleaned out my bead bowl and listed a bunch of orphans:


Have a great weekend!

Wow, those fish are wonderful! What a wild bead!! Love the orphans too, I'm chuckling at your orphan box compared to mine...

Here are my two best beads of the day, first beads since getting swine flu (not really, but who the heck knows, I have been SO sick!) Just happy to feel human and melt some glass again :)

I think there is something fishy going on here:lol:
I used dichroic glass in the middle, pity photo doesn't show it up!

Ana - Oh, Queen of the Showcase Thread, your "double your pleasure" fish bead is amazing.
Pam - sorry to hear you've been sick but it doesn't look like the illness affected your bead making ability - at all.
Astrid - your fish is fantastic and I love the design of the slide on the cord as well. Great idea.

Pam I'm glad to see you are melting glass again and feeling better!

Anastasia, your orphans are lovely but your fish are my favourite, they are wonderful! How perfect for a Pisces!

Astrid, you and Anastasia must have been talking! Thank you for inspiring me to get downstairs and get the torch lit!! What a fun bead.

Pam , sorry I just scanned through and didn't read that you were so sick!
I hope you are feeling a lot better as we did miss your beads here! :)

Hugs Astrid

P.S Can't see your pic Louise!

Anastasia - that is some orphan bead bowl - wow! Just a little boro for you....

Wow!!!! Just when I think you guys couldn't impress me more, you go ahead and do!

Love the fishes, Ana and Astrid. Incredible work, the both of them. Astrid, it appears that your fish was done off mandrel? How the heck did you do that???

I haven't made beads in so long, I miss it. Sigh!

Sandy loooooove those boro colours!!

Astrid, I didn't have a bead - but you and Anastasia made me get up and go and make some! :D

Hi Louise, it must be in your signature then as I see a little red cross :)
I want to see your beads tomorrow:)

Debby, the fish was made on the end of the mandrel so that I could fit a tail ;)

Regards Astrid
Thanks for the compliments!
