Success and Failure

Well, sometimes things work out right and then again sometimes they don't.  The first two sets are more of the Meditation Pools sets that I listed the other day, and I am really pleased with them.  I love the green set - it looks like a very colourful green Mother of Pearl.  I left the "pools" raised this time just to see if I liked them any better and to see if I could get the colour to intensify, but I don't think it made any difference, and it is a lot easier to flatten them so I will probably do that in the future.

The last set in the butter cream colour I had high hopes for, but for some unknown reason the pink "silver glass" has fumed or splashed pink all over the lovely cream colour.  You can really see it in the bead 2nd from the bottom.  It looks like spilled pink nail polish that I didn't wipe up properly.  I am quite dissappointed in them, and so I think I will etch them and see if that improves the look.  Ah well, best laid plans and all that.

I have listed the first and second sets in my Etsy.

Have a great weekend!
