Picture Glitch Fixed!!!

Whew Hew!!! They fixed the picture glitch! Here are the goodies I worked on this morning! I am thinking about pulling out my electroforming kit and adding some copper to my beads! Let me know what you think. It is a very cool effect mixing the metal with the glass. I wonder if I remember how to work that....hmmm

Kristen already swiped these... gotta be quick :) Thanks Kristen !!

New Beads

Alright....Blogspot is irritating me right now. It won't let me upload my pictures and I have 8...yes 8 new bead sets!!! I was a busy beader today and want to show you guys my latest beads!! (and also give you another opportunity to win those rings HA HA....not that some of you need a new post in order to feel the need to leave a comment :) )

Inspired by Others

I absolutely love my newest creations and it was a joint effort in creating these guys!! Kristen of mjmjewelrydesigns and Ann Marie said they wanted spirals....and since I try my best to always make them happy...I started working on spirals. I was not happy with their "loop" and so began some research. Kerry of Kabs Concepts has some really cool earrings with the spirals coming off the side of a bead. After brainstorming with Kristen...she suggested using my disks instead of a bead (are ya still following??)....anyways....after a little trial and error, here is what I came up with!!! I am soo excited about how they turned out! They remind me of little jelly fish! Let me know what you think!! I would love some feedback on these :)

Something Different

Alright Kristen and Ann Marie...let me know what you think. I am still trying to perfect the loops. The longest one is approx. 1 3/4 inches long!!

New Beads

Well, I got some torch time in this morning and I am thrilled with the results! Here are 2 sets of matching pairs. They would be great as earrings!! They are a beautiful mix of colors that are magnified under crystal clear.

I also made 2 focals with a crackle technique. I love the effect that they have! These beads are BIG!

Here is a set of 7 in some of my favorite colors! I love the yellow in this has an iridescent sort of surface that has blues and purples...really beautiful glass!
