A strange combination I'm sure. lol ! I've been torching some this week but it was limited and will be even more so now due to the heat and humidity. Summer has arrived.
First things first. Got some leaf headpins/beads made at last and this time, made some that are the biggest I've ever made ! lol ! Just wanted to see how big I could go with no issues. You see my results below. :) The bigger leaf is more like a focal. The rest are good for whatever one can think of. :) All for sale. Post below in the comments section if interested. I like this technique I used for all of them really. It's more "work" than using one color but worth the outcome.
I made lots of bellflowers as well however no need to show them here. They're for a special project anyway. lol !
The second photo is of the few beads I made. The 4 similar shaped beads were more or less experiments that "sort of" turned out. Was testing a bead shaper/marver I got a long time ago and never used. Not sure I liked it. It slid around alot while being used. The other two were reactive colors that I really love using together. That round bead is HUGE but turned out great. I only wish I had used the darker cranberry color on top of the pink dots on the sides. Next time.
Onward as it were. I feel the need to bring up another subject here. The DVD's I've been watching. Oh brother. I never thought I'd sit and watch a CURRENT tv program on dvd but that's exactly what I've been doing. I bought the first season dvd set of Game Of Thrones at Walmart about 2 weeks ago for CHEAP. I had heard it was a fantastic tv series. So figured why not try. I wasn't that impressed after the first 2 "shows" on disc 1 but figured I paid for this set so I'll watch it. Needless to say - I was HOOKED in such a major way I had to have the other seasons. Only up to season 4 was available so I bought them all ! lol ! I've never binged watched ANYTHING before Game Of Thrones. lol ! My husband even got into it and loves it ! He and I both binged watched it last weekend one day. I just finished up watching the last of the 4 seasons. Watching up to 3 shows each time I watched. If you haven't seen it I won't go into details but I have to say - WATCH IT ANY WAY YOU CAN AND START FROM THE VERY BEGINNING ! You will NOT regret it one bit. I have already pre-ordered season 5 dvd's. I cannot wait for it to arrive. The only complaint I have is there just aren't enough shows in the actual season but I can understand why. It's one of the BIGGEST undertakings I've seen for a tv show. Revolution was similar but I am quite sure that Game Of Thrones is even bigger. Amazing show. HBO finally got it right with this one. :)
Ok, time to get my day started. Thanks so much for coming by. I hope you come back again soon. Have a great day and week. :)
