Yep, I've got some catching up to do for sure! I've been busy filling requests/orders for finished jewelry and beads like crazy and I'm just now getting to post a few of them.
I'll start with what I like the best - my new experiments have led me to a new swirly style that looks somewhat like my zebra beads but not exactly. These are, most likely, for a friend/customer as I've been working on designing something she wants. It's been interesting trying to match up 1. the image she has in her mind with 2. what I think she is talking about and 3. the way certain glass colors like and dislike playing together. Here is what I consider my best success so far with the task:
Playing with purple seems to be a never ending thing when it comes to glass. You can layer so many different combinations to create beautiful and varying shades.
This set is a set of large hole beads I made on request for a customer. They are black and white with accents of RO.
These are large hole "Pandoralikeish" beads too. In case you are wondering why I'm not just saying they are my Pandor_ style beads these days is because there have been a few law suites filed by that company against some beadmakers and I'd rather avoid that!!!
These are a pair of earrings I made for a customer recently. I love them! I am going to have to make a pair like these for myself!
I know that's a lot of photos of the same pair of earrings but I was playing around with different backgrounds and I'm taking a poll. If you care to let me know which photo you think shows the earrings the best please do! I like them all for different reasons but if I had to eliminate one it would be the coral.
That's it! Hope you are all ready for Christmas!!! I have a few more things to wrap and some cookie dough to make but I'm pretty relaxed and ready for the big day!
I wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and if I don't blog again before then, A very Happy New Year too!!!
