Re: Show and Tell Sep 10, 2004 Friday

OOOH Ms. Mary those are FAB!!!! Can I have them???

I tend to cruise this thread and enjoy but don't usually post any of my stuff... seems like I'm always making something for it to go out the door.... which is good.... so here are a few pieces of my lampwork into bracelets. The red/black/yellow incorporated some furnace glass beads my friend made as "floaties." The other two are made in a "galaxy style," using some Swarovski Crystals and Bali. Glass colors are Lausha olive and ivory, and copper green with teal and purple, both have goldstone which doesn't show up much in the pic... but really kicks butt in the beads! (yeah... I like these!)
Peace,
Lois

Re: Show and Tell Sep 10, 2004 Friday

Mary, those are LOVELY! I've got to peruse your site again & place an order soon!

Lois, so glad you posted. The bracelets are terrific. I have some furnace glass, but, honestly, I never think to mix it with lampwork. I'm going to have to re-examine a few projects I have going. (P.S.-Are you REALLY sure you want to head to the Keys? I'm half joking, I'd love the climate, but sheesh this hurricaine season is horrid.)

Mary - lovely beads, great luster!!

Lois - one bracelet more beautiful than the other! I especially love the last one, great colours, and great lampwork!!

I'm gonna be a threadhog today - sorry! But I HAVE been busy, made three sets... The black/white ring and earrings have buttons (inlaid with MOP) set in 'em.

Re: Show and Tell Sep 10, 2004 Friday

Mary - those are gorgeous! You must love opening your kiln when you find something like this! Reminds me of the oil slicks on puddles that we used to ride our bikes through. Not a romantic thought but they were so pretty to me.

Lois - no wonder they fly out the door! Love them all! But if someone made me pick a fav, it would be the last one.

Andee - I love the simplicity of your pieces and I never was really drawn to that particular Hilltribe bead. But now that I've seen you use it, I think I will have to get some. I like the way you squared off the earring posts to enhance your design too.

Stunning, stunning, stunning, Andee! I'm especially drawn to the frosted aqua of the chunky square set!

Re: Show and Tell Sep 10, 2004 Friday

Wow, great stuff, everyone!

Lois & Mary: Niiiice beads! It's people like you who are gonna eventually get me to start using more beads in my work!

Andee: Cool designs; I especially like the mother of pearl set. Also, I have been looking for a way to photograph my earrings better, and I love what you did. I'm gonna have to find a clear tube and steal your set-up, if you don't mind.

Here's some of the stuff I worked on over the weekend. First are a couple of sterling earrings (see, I *do* need a new set-up!). Then a sterling necklace, a sterling bracelet and finally a steel & aluminum bracelet. Enjoy!

Re: Show and Tell Sep 10, 2004 Friday

You all are so nice to me, thank you!

Donna - not sure if I knew that, but I do now! Thanks!

Rebeca - nah, of course I don't mind you "stealing" my set up! And wow, you have been busy! How long are those earrings? I'm sure if I put them on they would dangle somewhere in the area of my belly button! I love every piece, but especially the necklace and the first bracelet! Wow!

hee, hee! The green ones are about 2 3/4" long and the 2nd ones are about 2 inches long. So they're not incredibly long, but the first ones definitely have some weight to them! I want to put them on some lever backs, if my order from Rio would ever arrive...

Re: Show and Tell Sep 10, 2004 Friday

Rebeca- wonderful wirework! I love the chain-maille!!!

Andee- I'm in awe as usual over your great pieces!

Okay. I finally finished some stuff. I'm going to sell these at the local art association's gallery downtown. Let's see how they do!

The first 2 are a set- sterling silver wire, and chain with fiber-optic beads, glass beads, freshwater pearls and furnace beads. I hope that I made the bracelet small enough, but not too small. I'm 6'2", so I have really big wrists- if I try making something that fits my wrists, it's going to be too big for most people.

The third picture is a micro-fiber suede necklace with a PMC pendant with a furnace bead and a handmade clasp. I used this old Indian wooden stamp that I got in Holland to make the pendant. And, I discovered that I can burnish my PMC pieces with a steel spoon- that adds a lot of depth to my them.

Thanks for taking a look, everyone!

Liz
