Again - great imposion bead!!!
Have not had Wed. night supper yet here. Just finished making some murrinni using a Corina tutorial, and I think they turned out well. Made 2 beads using them, so opening the kiln in the morning will be the proof.

A few more from the Flaming Fools:

Yummy, love the boro.

Hey Samma! Love the big bead, ooo la la and the vessel is way cool. Thinking a wee sponge and wee little flower would be ever so fun.

Michael and Brad, you have some fun things going on in those beads~frits?

Soothing Annie, ever so peaceful.

It began as a background, but I just couldn't mess with it.

Good morning!

Great show...everything is gorgeous!

Another focal from me..."Waterfall":


Have a great day!

Deronda- yes, frits in the first 2 sets, along with heavy reduction flame. Also the red in the last bead is actually a yellow-green glass after being reduced. Actually totally unplanned but ran out of oxygen while making this bead!

Very great beads in this thread.

Here my contribution. 2 beads I made in the Anastasia Class
Anastasia is a great teacher, :clap: I learn a lot with her.
Thank you Anastasia, I really feel lucky to have this opportunity.

Now I have to find time to practice but that it is another story ... :rolleyes:

Have a nice summer day !

Just to compare, 3 beads made just before the class...

Great showcase today already!

Deronda - Holy canoli! That is the most spectacular bead!!! Those trees look like an oil painting - really, I have to ask...did you paint those on there? :D

Debby - Not your best? You know that phrase "beauty is in the eye of the beholder"? Well, the counterpart to that is "flaws are ONLY in the eye of the creator" - because that bead is just as beautiful and flawless as all your beads are! ;)

Paula - Ooooo! Who knew black/white & red would look so yummy etched! Nice!!

Samma - you are the master of heat control! How those big beads don't crack on you is a mystery to me. These are absolutely gorgeous!

I know I missed some of you - I apologize. Today's beads are all so spectacular! :)

Here's a new one from me:

Kevan this is bead is fabulous and I don't usually like this technique but I keep going back and having another look. I can't find it on any of your sites so I assume it is already gone.

What a wonderful showcase to wake up to, thank you all for the wonderful eye candy today. I know I have to move on but my eyes just don't want to leave yet:heart:

It's on Etsy. I just put it up.

And thank you so much for the kind words.
