.....are just too much fun to make. :)) I know, I've said it enough already. Can't help it. Still I do need to get back to making some butterflies so that will be on my agenda next week. I just got some enamels so will be playing with those on the beads as well. I never quite got the hang of using them before but will put forth the extra effort this go round. They are so intense in color and make beautiful beads - when they're used right.
So, I did make some jumbo blown beads this past week with some success. I am beginning to think that even the off shape ones can be used for something. lol ! I don't know why not. I guess it depends on what one would do with them. :) I did manage to make some good ones too of course. I added two more to the blue ones shown in the post below so there's a nice set of 4 that something could be done with them. Maybe a nice necklace of some sort. They are 4 different sizes too which will make it more fun to play with. I figure when the yellow pollen hits and I can't open the window for make up air when I torch, I'll start making some jewelry or something with these beads I have made. If I don't, they're going to sit around collecting dust and just be in the way. Already need a bigger container to put them in as it is ! lol !
Here's a picture of the 4 together with the sizes printed just above each one. I really like this color alot. I'd love to get more. Maybe next glass order. :) So with this "set", I now have two same color sets. Believe me, sets are NOT my forte' so to speak. Making same beads has never been a good thing for me. The more I try, the worse the beads get. lol ! So with these I've made only one or two of the same colors at a sitting. Makes it easier for me to actually make a set. This was not my intention when I made the first two but I like the color so much I figured what the heck. :) It'll be fun to try and figure out what to make with them. Jewelry is only one option. I can think of a few things to try with them. When I finally do sit to figure out what to make with them, it'll be a surprise to me as well. lol !
Thanks so much for coming by and having a look at my blog. Come back again soon to see what's happenin'. :)
