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 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

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!

Hugs,

Debby

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!
