Beads and 2nd Opinion

I made lots of beads today. I don't know when I will get them on etsy. I am going back to the city for a 2nd opinion on my recontruction surgery I had. I not very pleased with the out come. Hope to get some advice on if its fixable. I get to see my granddaughter play baseball it's the playoffs. She is the only girl on the team and she is a power hitter. When she gets up to bat the other team always yells Good hitting back up. The last game I saw she got a three run home run. Hope to get a picture of my new beads before I go. Had a great week-end we when camping with some friends. Cold and rainy but we had a good time.

Forgot to add the list

hop tour:


This is my necklace sent by Jeannie. Very Very small seed beads with a few beads. I was hoping to add some of my beads but the seed beads were too small it looked funny.  I took one of the beads Jeannie had on her necklace a green glass bead and added some of my green beads. I took apart an old bracelet I made to get the green beads.
     My necklace has two rows one row I wire wrapped the seed beads and added copper wire spirals. The other is seed beads and the green glass beads.
     Hop over to Jeannie's blog to see all the other designs

More Fun Beads

My new beads using z-99 Powder and reduction frits. I use baking soda to get the pitted look. I added clear over the baking soda and got the bubble bead you see in the back. It is so cool. Using different colors to see what looks best. The sky blue ones in the middle came out great lots of teal and aqua colors. When upload on etsy you will see them better.
