I have a fun filled weekend planned, spending much of it at the torch. I have a lot of catching up to do in the studio. I have had several requests for leaf beads, which I make this weekend. Next week I will get them painted and put in the solution. Thank you for your interest!!

I need to hide the Ekho...lately, it's what I pick up everytime I torch. I find it very fascinating with all the colors it will produce. I'm having a blast with it, and I find that I do better when I "play" and just have fun. Hopefully I won't bore anyone while I get it out of my system! Above are beads from yesterday.

My friend Robin Koza came over yesterday for a play-day at the torch. It was a lot of FUN ~ we played with silvered glass (beads above). The first one is Silver Brown and Dark Ivory, and I really like the colors achieved. The second bead is Ekho and Dark Ivory. The last bead is Terra Nova 2 and ???, and I'm sure that I did not work the glass correctly, as it turned out WAY dark. Back to the drawing board with that color!!
