OMG! I don't think I've ever started a showcase thread before - well, maybe a long time ago but . . . yowza!
I got my shards from Avenue Beads yesterday and had a ball. Here are a few.
I'm in love, in LOVE with shards. :D

Ok, so I was so excited I screwed up the date. Oops, it's the 24th.

Wow, Ellen! I can see why! You really did a great job with them, too. Some of them have that "torn paper" look, especially the amber one in the first pic. You really did a great job controlling the heat on that! Excellent work!

Here's mine, another froggy...

Hope to BBL to check out the S&T, I'm heading off to Petit Jean Mountain today.

here, froggy, froggy. here, froggy, froggy. Forget something, Deb?
BTW, thanks. These shards are thicker and easier to work with than the ones I've had before.

Tooooooo funny Ellen - it's the BEST day of the year and you messed up the date! (my BD)

Rich - is it the "best" day of the year because it's "someone's" birthday? Or are you just unnaturally attached to the number 24?

Beautiful Beads Ellen...I haven't worked with shards ... they look like fun...gives a very natural, ancient look to the beads.:thumbsup:

Ellen ~ Love your shard beads! Now you have to try blowing your shards yourself. Not all that hard.

Hey! What's the deal? I'm the only one in the showcase today. I know Astrid's away on holiday but where is everyone else? It's lonely in here.
