The Fish Tank!!

My First Fish

My First Fish

Oh boy have I been having a blast. I purchased a tutorial from Cathy Lybarger on sculptural fish and let me tell you that I haven’t had this much fun since I started lampworking 27months ago. I won’t bore you with the details but I think I have found a new outlet for my creative side. Here are “Propellor Girl”, “Platypus Fred” and “Missing my Dorsal”. Enjoy them and I will post more critters as I go along.

Peace and happy beading

NEW TECHNIQUES




Last night I purchased the “Moth Wing” tutorial from its designer and Master Lampworker, Andrea Guarino-Slemmons. She is one talented lady who keeps finding her voice as evidenced by her diverse styles, hopefully, one day I will be able to travel to the opposite coast to take a Masters Class ….hey, a gal can dream!

Well, I have three beads that I have made since last night and here they are. I am not sure if I will be listing them at the shop. I will have to think about that.

UPCOMING WORK

The summer has been a rather wet one, actually I can’t remember the last time we had so much rain.  Everything is growing like crazy, my roses are loving it.   The dragonflies have been out enmasse this season, hubby and I always enjoy seeing them.  We have also had some awesome butterflies too. 

I so love it when I can make something to wear that is inspired by my surroundings.  I have been working my tush off torching and creating joolz.  I am such a tortured soul, lol, …I just can’t find enough time to do enough of both to satisfy me.  Anyway, here are some pics of just some of the new pieces
