Last Batch Before the Move? Maybe...

Just give me black and white glass and my love of patterns and dots and I'm happy.
I love this bead and can't seem to stop making it.  I like to add transparent colors to the basic black and white design and just see where it takes me. 
 I love this view.

This red looks amazing and goes very well with my "Red Zebra" beads!

On these next beads I still used Aqua as my transparent color but the raised dots on these is CIM Freeman.  I'm liking this combo.  It's the first time I have paired these two blues.

Another pretty pattern:

This next one reminds me of a bow tie or a tuxedo bead.

 These are 9 dotted stars.

 These are 8 dotted stars.

These are 4 dotted starts.

These are also 4 dotted starts but with a different pattern.

This bead is a bit of a reverse.  The aqua was a bit darker than I'd hoped.

I felt like making some spring colored beads.  Eh, nothing spectacular here but the colors are pretty.

I also etched a few "Sea Glass" beads for a customer of mine.

I still have a few more dipped large hole mandrels left that I may use up before I pack up the last of the studio.  I'll be back blogging after April 15th - when the taxes are finished and my studio is all set up again in the North.  Hope everyone is starting to enjoy some nice spring weather!!! 


  1. WOW! These are all very pretty! That red in the third bead is just fantastic-it really pops! You have such a steady hand!
