Wow ! I have some catching up to do ! I don't know if I like this new blogger thing yet. Well, will have to just keep playing.
So it's been a very busy week this past week. Very little creative time but I did manage to put together the necklace pictured below.
I wanted to use the enameled beads I made a few weeks ago before the pollen hit and this is what I came up with so far. I'm not sure if I like it nor am I sure it will stay as it is. I like the solid black beads bringing out the black in the enameled beads however I'm not sure the shape of those black beads is right. Someone mentioned a more organic shape to match the enameled beads & I do believe they are right. The more I look at it, the more I agree. :)
I am getting closer to being able to torch again. Yay ! I can't wait. Am getting very impatient now. I got some filigrana glass I am so very anxious to use ! Filigrana rods are a solid color encased in clear & ready to use. Also stocked up on some glass at very good prices to use with the enamels. I'm ready to get back to that and the blown beads as well. Have LOTS of ideas floating around in my head. Need to get back to making some BOC beads as well. I gave up on the butterflies. They just weren't very good at all. Those need to be very special. So I will just stick with making the beads for the kids. It's all good. :)
That's all for now. Thanks so much for coming by. I hope you come back again soon. Lampwork beads or jewelry - it's all good ! :)
