Bead Soup is On!

I got the very very talented Kristen Latimer as my partner. All her jewelry is gorgeous in the sparkle kind of way, so do I send rustic beads? Torching will be fun today. Hope every one is happy with there partners. I am, a little intimidated I have to confess. Happy Beading to all of us.

Gone Rouge with great results

Copper Green is one of my favorite colors to work, it has fun with other glass, loves to be etched but it's a  little pricy then other glass, so if you mess up there is a few SHit's!!!!!!!! that can be heard in the next town over. This bead was going to be a thin ring around a large mandrel, as you can see it got thick and then I went crazy and just wrapped over my thick ring. I was ready to just dump it the water jug but had room in the kiln and saved it. So Happy I did as I love this bead. I will try to make again cause 3 on a chain would be cool.
     Hope every one had a great New Years! I have goals set,  Submit to magazines, Etsy upload 3 time's a day, Do more challenges, loose 20 LB's, Blog More designs, exercise 45 min 3 times a week, Zumba Make new and exciting beads for 2012.
