As promised, heres 3 from me. Please note, these were made under distress ;) hence their names:eek:

#1 Blue heart smashed flat with SIS, named: unclaimed (h)art
#2 Clear heart with red in tip; named: empty heart
#3 Ivory with red, SIS. This was fun to make:eek: Purposefully started out with small red heart. Draped ivory for abstract headless, entwined bodies holding heart, high lighted with SIS. With emotions of a jilted(?) lover, this was gleefully smashed into an aesthetically pleasing oval:D Probably should have been etched, right Amber?

Enjoy

Duane
PS...Oops! forgot to add name for #3 Its Unconditionally Confused

Hi Duane, It seems that your heart ache has brought out the creativeness in you, I love the 'Unconditionally Confused' one.

Duane ~ You are too funny! Love the descriptions of the beads and the beads. Mashing glass does certainly relieve stress. Now try cutting glass ~ It's even more fun!

Astrid ~ That is stunning! I love the smokey haze that give an ethereal look to the bead.

Anastasia ~ You've done it again! Fantastic. BTW, do either of you ever make crappy beads???? Just had to ask :evil: :angel: :eek: ;) You must have different kiln fairies across the ocean

Duane - fun hearts, GREAT names! Keep showing more of your work.
Anastasia and Astrid - you both produce such splendid masterpieces. Always have so much fun trying to figure out and try things I see in your beads. Have to admit, unsuccessfully for the most part, but so much fun trying.
Theresa- another long admired artiste - are the soft colors done with enamels or frits?
Crazy woman - wonderful marble. Someday hope to make an implosion that looks decent.

A pait of water themes from us: Under the Boardwalk and Poseidon:

Lesley, The flower in the marble is super!!
I'll see tomorrow which fuggly I can post for you :)

Thanks Gnarla team, which one of you does the posting here, Michael or Brad ?
The blue bead definitely has an underwater feeling to it:)

Teresa the porcupines are to cute and I love the back ground (just for the fun, do you remember I also did 2 with the same theme? )

Astrid

Currently it is Michael doing the posting. Generally there is a lag of about 2 weeks between making the beads and getting them posted. So it is fun trying to remember who made which bead! Some are easy to tell, as there are some definite individual styles. These two, I know I made the murrini, but pretty sure these are both done by Brad. - M

Naos - thanks. Think I commented on this bead over at LE, and if not, it is fantastic. You are the goddess of organics in my opinion.
