Topic: Glass works

Today I tried to work on getting inspiration from my eyes on the beadies.  Size and shape are starting to come more regularly and will eventually become instinct.  I picked a fabric that I like and tried to make beads, regardless of size and shape, from that inspiration.  I'm happy with my first attempt and really liked this exercise.  I'mma do it again.  Oh yeah, I'm a fabric junkie too...so this could go on forever...lol.

A relaxing week at the lake spawned this watercolor.  Peaceful, huh?

Chablis is one a patchwork bracelet with an extender to make it a choker.  This was a very fun one to do at a very special Christmas bead in.

I had to make a little momento of my first lampwork beads.  It's just a silly, but I'm tickled with my third days catch of the day.

This is an oldie.  Original painting by watercolorist, David Lord, was reduced and transferred to polymer clay for a custom order.

I could not figure out where the inspiration for this bracelet came from until I realized that I had been picking tiny pinecones all day.  Well, there you have it.
