Wednesday - Show-em, if ya got'm

Hello, hope you are having a good morning or evening!!! - It says Wednesday on the time line - I am a bit early, but am SO tired, have to get to sleep - I did another HUGE dichro bead, have to stop doing that, they just end up huge. Then I did one of those twistie beads, I started out with a periwinkle blue, and then tuttie fruitie frit, then did the twisting. I am so happy with this, wish the picture showed it better. Then, another Small Mouthed stripey: this one is a Small Mouthed Tiger stripey, and is particularly frilly!! Have a GREAT day - Virginia

Wow, that is an awesome fish, and I like the bicone very colorful and pretty.
Woohoo its early and I can't seem to wind down to go to sleep. So here is a raku entry for me, on a black base, I love the reaction it gives.

Re: Wednesday - Show-em, if ya got'm

Woohoo!!! Two days in a row that I'm able to post... school is keeping me very busy... not enough torch time and not enough sleep... the bright side is that I'll be done soon...
Virginia- the twist-ified bead looks wonderful- I'm sure those colors are much more vivid in real life! The fishy is seriously cool, too!!
Debbie- Your raku pressed beads look great- I've had fun seeing all of the raku beads- so much variation!!!
I've been playing with these "Biologicals" (inspired by microscope slides of cells) beads... the first is lavender/ ink blue, and the other transl. yellow and one of those new reds (Vetrofond? apologies for the thumbprint in the photo). Slightly appropriate that I've been making these again since I taught a "Cell Biology" lab last week... LOL... Have a great day everyone!

Re: Wednesday - Show-em, if ya got'm

Virginia - Cool fish! How large is that dichro bead in real life?

Debbie - Very pretty raku beads! I'm still waiting on my raku frit, can't wait to try it!

Margaret - Oh Wow!

I have finally made a set of tiger beads that I'm proud of! Obviously someone else likes them too because they got their first bid on eBay within hours of being listed! Yay!

Great beads everyone!
Gina, I always look forward to seeing your beads and the colors combos you come up with, great job today as always
I don't know if you can tell, but these are Noah's Ark, the focal is the Ark with a little piggie's and girrafe's, and then I have a couple of elephants, rabbits, zebras, giraffes, and fish on the blue beads.

Great beads everyone! Margaret.. every time I look at your beads, I just want to go sell my house and kids to buy them!

My kids have had me making little cat sets to donate to their fall festival... here are some I made for E-bay. They're fun...

Re: Wednesday - Show-em, if ya got'm

Virginia ~ I like the fish, he/she looks like they have a lot of attitude!
Debbie ~ great job with the Raku! I must play with mine today!
Maraget ~ OOOh that first one! I am such a sucker for bluish purple!
Kikki ~ I made some tiger beads for the first time last month, aren't they sooo fun to make?? You did a grrrrrrrrrreat job, he he!
Gina ~ how pretty, I'm always a little to heavy on the heat and burn the silver out.
Kelly ~ Wow, that looks like a lot of work!!!!
Gigi ~ The oracle cat makes me gigle!


Here's a fall set that I did yesterday, was back in a lentil mood! amber with silver and ocelot spots and then two shades of amber and black.

The pieces are about the qualities of discovery and rare moments of magic. They are discoveries on a journey without road maps. Glass work takes me to these places, places where no airplane can fly.

Re: Wednesday - Show-em, if ya got'm

Here are two new ones from this week. The first is a lentil shape bead from my medallion series. The second one is an alien pod series bead.

Its is nice to get back and see all the work. Between all the weather , lack of power , followed by lack of cable it has been hard to follow anything online. And it is starting to flood here again as I speak, o joy!!!! ( I am in Richmond by the way.

Re: Wednesday - Show-em, if ya got'm

I just got my new camera and am testing it out. I know the background is not right. These beads I made with Alex's intense black frit and ivory. We'll see if I remember how to do this.
I've been watching everyone's beads and everyone is growing so much. Wow! Such creativity. It is really thrilling and I might add, humbling. Onalee

Re: Wednesday - Show-em, if ya got'm

As always a very nice show of beads. Here are a couple of mine for today. I can't wait to try raku, I seem to be stuck in an organic rut but they make me happy to make them.
