Saturday Show and Tell

Hi Guys!

Gotta hurry up and post this thread before someone else sneaks in with me and we do a double!

Yes, I actually made a set. Gasp!



What did you make??

Re: Saturday Show and Tell

It's not quite Saturday in California yet, but.....

Mary -- pretty colors, well-made eclectic set!

Faith -- Sweet beadies.

Okay, so because of the encouragement from Beth, Vikki, Val, Holly, and Toni, in that order (in Beth/Dr.Mungo's challenge thread), I'm posting the progress of the goddess vessels. (I'll probably be making them on an almost daily basis until I get them figured out )

The first one is supposed to be a flame, but looks more like "I'm the inventor of the candy corn bead" -- LOL -- with a nod to Beth . Heh heh heh....

And then there's another one, just because I like BE cranberry.

They are both little essential oil/perfume vessels, approximately two-and-a-half inches from top to bottom with the stoppers in place.

Re: Saturday Show and Tell

I love show and tell - all the creations are beautiful! The hearts are really classy and romantic, just have that elegant feel to them and

Moth - your bead set is to die for!!

Terri - your vessel is gorgeous, I love the flaming top!

I had some fun with etching Moretti and doing a bit of boro.

Re: Saturday Show and Tell

Oh Boy! I love the start today's show and tell! I can tell veryone is gearing up for a hot beading weekend!

Well I had a different kind of request from my daughter who does some special effects work for movies. This is a different kind of "eye" candy!
They are for some 4 minute horror flick.

Have fun!

Re: Saturday Show and Tell

Creepy eyeballs!! Cute pumpkin girl!! Love the vessels (I haven't ventured that far yet)!

Well, I got a shipment from Frantz yesterday. It had the new Light plum silver, dark plum silver, and trans lavender blue!!!!! I preordered them and thought they weren't due in until Sept!! I bet Mike got the stuff just in time to take it to the Gathering and unload it!

I just played a little last night to see what the stuff looked like. The plums reduced naturally I guess. The lt plum is really nice, the dark plum is so dark it is almost black, the trans lav blue is really pretty. Take a look.

Re: Saturday Show and Tell

Good Morning!
Well, all I have to say is....The "EYES" have it.... Great beads everybody!
I am adding a vessel....fun hollow form with components.....
Ok...first pull all the component petals and 2 butterfly wings from the ends of the glass rod...stick in the front of the kiln to keep warm....make a hollow bead vessel....neck first..shape...little bead at the end of mandrel...build hollow..shape..add enamel..add flower petals..shape, make sure adhered well....add butterfly wings....add glass loop....this all takes time..as after each component you need to go back and reheat everything...neck...hollow..etc....I love making them...hugs....j.
