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.

THE JOY OF BEADING…………..

Today was so wonderful, Christina, a customer of mine, sent me a photograph of a necklace and earrings that she made with a set of beads she bought from me called “Oil Slick”.    She utilized faceted citrine irregular chunks, Greek silver beads that are also irregular in shape and put it together with sterling wire. Fantastic job Christina!
