Thank you all for your nice words, again!
As for the wonkies - I somehow think that nearly all my beads are wonkies. I'm so used now to making hearts that I can't produce a proper round (i.e. donut shaped) bead anymore, they all get out of shape...
The flower bead really is a test bead, tho, I tried getting the bubble in by just placing a dot of clear on top - that was before I went over to proper encase them. (Before that I used sheet glass for encasing flowers...)
Sarah - that set is very very pretty, and the lampwork is great!
Karen - wow, those earrings are formidable!
