OCTOBER - can you believe it - SHOWCASE

Ok, gang. I'm challenging y'all. Let's fill this showcase up. I'm going out to my hillbilly light box right now and take a picture of the earrings I made.
See ya tomorrow.

Re: OCTOBER - can you believe it - SHOWCASE

OOOOOHHHH to both of them!!! Ellen, the earrings turned out just beautiful and the Kaye, your wire wrapped focal is stunning. Very nice job on all of the glitter. It is still hot here, but ideas are brewing in my head. October will be a posting month for me...so keep looking . Linda

Re: OCTOBER - can you believe it - SHOWCASE

What a great start of beautiful beads to start this month! Ellen, what terrific earrings! Way to go, Chica!
Kaye, I love copper with blue, so that really is stunning! Another glassmaking bud made me a copper bracelet w/various blues that are mostly silvered glasses & I always get compliments when I wear it. Lovely job with your wire wrapping.
Thx for making a great start to this month!
Keep those creative fires burning,
ginger

Beautiful earrings Ellen. I am amazed at how you can get matching pieces like that.
Kaye that wire wrapping looks great. The copper contrasting on that bead is wonderful.

Re: OCTOBER - can you believe it - SHOWCASE

Ellen, I love the earrings, especially the blue pair 3rd from the right. I am always a sucker for blue, my favorite color.

Kaye, your focal bead looks great and congrats on the wire wrapping job. It is so much better than putting a bead on a headpin (which I have done many times!).

Re: OCTOBER - can you believe it - SHOWCASE

thanks Beth
having a hard time getting business back under my feet now days....the bead world/selling world has changed so much in the 11 years since I learned to make beads. Loved it when it was easy to sell and hot....not so much when you feel no one wants what you do anymore...but I keep truckin along and try different things...hense the wire wrap.

Re: OCTOBER - can you believe it - SHOWCASE

Kaye, your wire wrapping is lovely! It seems that you're making beads that really sing with the extra wire on them. Beautiful job.
Thx for showing your goodies,

Kaye - another beautiful piece. Coupling the wire wrapping and your hand made bead is perfect.

Re: OCTOBER - can you believe it - SHOWCASE

Hi all! I haven't been here in ages .. followed a link from elsewhere and I'm happy to see these boards are still up and running.

Ellen - that's such a wonderful assortment of earrings .. looks like you've been busy!

Kaye - I think your wire work really compliments those gorgeous beads. I especially like the square wire you are using.

I've got a bunch of little raised flowers I'll toss in the mix.

Re: OCTOBER - can you believe it - SHOWCASE

Patty - thanks for showing up for the showcase and bringing your pretty flowers along.
I made a few earring disks the other day but didn't take pics. You've encouraged me to do.
Check back later.
