I was browsing the internet yesterday and came across this great sounding project. Our glass bead group - Vancouver Island Fireflies - has a challenge each month, and this months challenge is masked dots. Although the challenge from Heather Trimlett is not necessarily masked dots, it is along the same line. I like how she challenges you to only use 2 colours, just dots, and use heat only - no tools, and to make 40 beads in this manner. I think you are also supposed to try to make them all with a different design using only the dots.
I started mine this morning - so far I have made 10, and they are in the kiln cooling down now. Apricot yellow with light turquoise. I will take photos when they are cleaned.
However, for now, I will leave you with a picture of some other beads I made about 3 years ago. Not quite following all the rules, but almost!
