Finally, A Day To Torch!! New Focals!

This is probably one of my favorite beads ever. It has so much depth, and reminds me of a reef or the ocean floor. Blues, greens, CZ's, murrini and trailing dots give this bead a lot of interest. SOLD
The pictures truly do not capture the sparkle, depth and warm colors that this bead offers. Rich gold, deep burgundy-wine, blues, greens and lacy silvered ivory, CZ's and trailing dots...this one is very feminine and elegant.
Another ocean-marine themed bead done in blues and greens, lacy silvered ivory, hand pulled murrini, trailing dots and two CZ's for a little sparkle...
A Winter White that shimmers a very subtle gold.....very elegant - special order for Rose.
Here is an Abyss bead done in deep amethyst, golds, blues and greens
Winter White with shimmers of very soft ivory with just a hint of pink (opalescent) - Special order for Rose.
Blue and ivory - special order for Rose.

I finally made it to the torch this past weekend. I had a few custom orders to fill, but most of the time was spent playing! It was fun, and very productive! Shown above are some that I have photographed.

Blue and Green Focal

I found a few hours to torch yesterday, and here is one of the focals fresh out of the kiln. Since my torch time was so limited, I pretty much stuck with the same colors. I will post the others tomorrow after I get them photographed. As always, thanks for looking!!

Opalescent Focal

Here is another focal from yesterday. It is very subtle and has an opalescent shimmer to it.

Abyss Focal

Above is an Abyss focal done in blues and Amethyst. The dichro shining from below is very subtle, yet glimmers and give is a touch of elegance.

I'm hoping to torch Saturday evening and all day Sunday, and have a few to post next week.

Thanks for peeking, and have a great weekend!

New Focals from Last Weekend

Inspired by Dawn Bushman, who LOVES pink and's even her glass, since I do not own a stick of pink. I plan to take care of that this weekend!
Abyss "Vortex" - This bicone focal bead is full of color and depth

As always, thanks for looking!

New "Hoosier Land" Leaf Focal Bead

Above is an electroformed focal leaf bead that I finished this morning.
I am also happy to announce that my sister, Carmen, and I are starting a new venture together. We both love and enjoy card making, stamping, scrapbooking, making altered letters, boxes and books, and just creating in general. We are opening a new Etsy store, Just Because You Care, which will feature handmade cards, stationery, memory gifts and more. Our target date for opening is May 1st.

As always, thank you for looking!
