Red Folk Art Chickens

One of my very good customers suggested that the folk Art Chickens would look great in red - YES, she was right!  I love how these turned out.

More Room With A View Beads.

I am really enjoying re-visiting some of my previous bead styles.  These ones came out of the kiln yesterday.

This set was made with an odd lot glass called "Key Lime", and
unfortunately it is no longer available.  I am using up my very small stash
very carefully, and very sparingly.

Another of the Room With A View beads.
Thanks for stopping in.  These beads can be found in my Etsy shop.

Dreamland - new bead design.

Well, despite the pain in my right hand I decided to go ahead and made some new beads, and I am glad I forged ahead.  These red and blue beads came out even better than I had hoped for - yay!  If you look very carefully, and have a LOT of imagination, you might see some fantastical critters in the bead designs.  It wasn't planned, but there they are anyway.

Dreamland, set 1.

Dreamland, set 2.
These beads can be found in my Etsy shop.

I think I will rest my hand for the balance of the day and hopefully it will be healed enough for bead making tomorrow.

Thanks for stopping in.

In The Garden of Eden

I had originally planned to call this set "An Apple a Day".  However as I was cleaning the bead release out of the holes, I realized the caterpillar looked more like a snake, so I changed the name to it's present one.  Maybe I will make another set without the caterpillar/snake and give it the original name! LOL.

In The Garden of Eden

I also went through my bead box and came up with a couple of sets of orphans.  These orphans are design/colour tests that did not make the cut for some reason.  They are structurally sound, and there is nothing wrong with them other than my not liking the colour combination or design.  These items are all in my Etsy shop.

Mi Casa Es Su Casa - My House Is Your House

I had some fun the other day making these bright and cheerful little house beads.  According to Wiktonary, the Spanish phrase means "My house is your house" - similar to "Welcome, make yourself comfortable".  Nice - I just hope no one takes it literally - lol!

Mi Casa Es Su Casa - My House Is Your House.

Happiness Is. . . .   I just love yellow and turquoise together.

Artifact - various ivory glasses and a "silver" glass.  The silver glass
reacts with the ivory and gives that distinctive crackle look - love it!

Another set in my "Urban" series.
 These beads can be found in my Etsy shop.
Thanks for dropping in!
