Two in a row we are starting! Everybody must be celebrating the end of the summer season.

A series of Rothko-esque beads, colors and look inspired by our marathon viewing of the second season of Mad Men.

Good morning, all! A great start to a great S&T! Great work!

I'm off to my arts & crafts show this weekend. But, before I go, I wanted to show this. This bead is one of my favorites...

Oooh Debby! WOW now that took a lot of skill in many areas! It's amazing :D

Here are some folded beads I've been working on, it's a technique I'm trying to learn.

Thanks, Louise! When you said you were working on folded beads, I imagined the disk beads that are folded down onto themselves. I had no idea this was what you were talking about. I'd love to see how these are made. They're awesome!

Trish ~ very wickedly cool hat! :)

Hugs,

Debby

Beautiful works everyone,

More than a month since I have not touched my torch.
But yesterday was the perfect time :music:

I try to understand more 'How to work with Murrini" and practice very thin stringer.
It seem so simple but the result is not always what I expect... :rolleyes:

Here 3 beads I made

WOWZERS Melodie - I'd like to see those BIGGER!! :D

Lise I really like the flowers you have going there, they look so delicate, like the little wild roses.

Trish you are smart to get working on Halloween beads, I really like the way these turned out.

Louise, that is hysterical! I have been scrabbling trying to figure out how to NOT make my photos so darn huge online!! But this one is for you...

They look like Morning Glories in person...

Thanks Louise for your nice commentary, the flowers suppose to be less delicate. I have to revise the step to do them.

Wow Melodie, your beads are so beautiful, well done.

Thank you Micahel and Brad, It's really a nice reaction.

Unfortunately, the focus is not centered on the Pearl so The picture of the bead is slightly blurry

Good night beautiful dreams
