Astrid I love all the colours, it's kind of like a modern art version of a stained glass window and I'm wondering how you do that!

Anastasia - when I look at your beads now I think 'aha! I know how she did this, or that'! It doesn't make me any less in awe of them though ;)

The shape is wonky on this one but I liked the pattern, I'm having a tough time figuring out what's enough/too much design on this style.

Thanks Louise,

I put down the black stringers first and color in with stringers, bit time consumming! Work well with transparent colors too to give a more stained glass effect.

Regards Astrid

Smiling here too Paula! ;o)

Debby that is lovely!! I have to try your tut when I get some quiet time.

Annie I like your philosophy - there's never too much - thinking that could apply to all kinds of things in life - including chocolate!

Thanks for the nice comments about my bead :D

Astrid, thank you for explaining how you made yours:wave:

Here's one from me called "NAPA" after Napa Valley, CA, (see the little grape cluster?) ;) :

Just checking in to see what beauties you've added :)

Louise, I like that bead it has a nice leaf design at the bottom of the scroll.
Teresa, Your Cameleon is so cute.
Debby, keep them comming, they are great!
Paual, The lions roars tonight, wow!
Chrisy, I like the way the colors complement each other, Grey is an under used color!
And Hello to Annie, come on where are you hiding your beads?
