Above is the one and only...meesly bead from the weekend! The work week was grueling, the weekend hectic, and there was absolutely no time to torch! I did sneak one in on Saturday, and if size matters, well, this is a bead for you! Measuring over two inches long and over one inch at the the widest point, this is on the large side for me.
Next weekend will be productive. My buddy Samma is coming over for a boro day on Friday. (She makes the most awesome shells!) We always have so much fun, and torch well together. I'm really looking forward to it!!
As always, thanks for looking!

My sisters, Carmen and Karen, came over to play jewelry on Saturday. We made bracelets...and a lot of girl talk until about 1:00 in the morning! Sunday was my torch day. Above are a few of the beads out of the kiln this morning. My favorite bead from Sunday has been painted and is now drying to be electroformed tomorrow.
These will be listed later this week.
Thanks for looking :)
