Roger: WOwie! amazing work Roger--really nice!!!\\:D/

Kim: Beautiful pendants! I love the bottom one especially! WOW!!!
Paula: Gorgeous beads--they will look so very nice on a bracelet or as a single bead on a neck hoop! The color of the copper goes so well with the boro!:tigger:

glassroger 2008-07-15 3:01pm

Thanks again for the compliments.

dogsrlove, I guess they could be smiling? or maybe their just a bit excited to find each other.

WOW!!! It just keeps getting better, and better...:grin: Just so you guys didn't think I'd totally fallen off the face-of-the-Earth, here's some Boro/Art Clay (PMC)/chain maille bracelets...

nagibeads 2008-07-15 4:35pm

OMG!!! Val- they are out of this world!!! I just about fell over when I opened up this thread!! The silver just makes the boro glow!!!

They're pistachio green striped rods, part translucent, part opaque. If I marked one of the rods, I'll pm you after I come in from the garage tonight with the number.

Val those bracelets are killing me! I love the first one with the pmc leaves under the beads, awesome work girl!

Over the Moon 2008-07-16 4:10am

Thanks, NN and Suzanne! :love:

Kim V 2008-07-16 7:59am

Wow, Val. They're both beautiful...but the top one is stunning!!!!!

JeanneJ 2008-07-16 4:08pm

Paula, OMG! Soooooo pretty! Please, please tell me where you got the copper, what thickness, etc.
I've been wanting to do this, I have the tools, but I'm kinda stuck on the copper.

Jodi_B 2008-07-17 8:55am

I've been practicing on florals and wine stoppers...

rifie 2008-07-17 10:11am

Roger, u r amazing. I love the two headed dragon.

Firebrand Beads 2008-07-17 11:17am

Dang, Roger, if I was a dragon that cute, I'd NEED to grow a second head just to check myself out! aDORable!
Pretty flowers, everyone... glad Kobuki has been getting his techniques out there and making the world all the better for it, lol.
Pretty pink, there, Jodi - I don't recognize it, though. What is it?

Sarabella 2008-07-19 12:51pm

Kim and Jodi - Nice flowers! And Roger - great dragons!

Sheesh, I better light up my torch and start practicing again...


Ro 2008-07-20 7:23am

kim, what color is the 'pink' one. they are so pretty!

Ro 2008-07-20 7:26am

wow roger your dragons are fantastic.

mary k, that starfish is THE BEST ive ever seen, i LOVE it. what color did you use. the clear frit is great.

Ro 2008-07-20 7:28am

its amazing looking through the pages of the gallery, the work is so beautiful. the greatest bead colors, blown work, sculpture, flowers etc etc. you would think with all of this beautiful work we would all be rolling in the dough, up to our eyballs with orders. things are just picking up now for me, but this past winter has been so slow.
thanks for all the inspiration everyone!

nagibeads 2008-07-20 8:19am

So true!
Best of wishes for everyone to reap the fruits of their hard labor and love!
And for this economy to get better!
Glad it's picking up for you Ro!

Imelt4U 2008-07-20 9:07am

Golly... I wish I had a bigger torch setup & could try my hand at more sculptural stuff. Everything is gorgeous! But I have to say, when I saw your marbles Kim, I instantly had to check every one of your links to see if they were up for sale. LOLOL!!

Here's a couple of my photos. I wish I could the crisp photos you all get... don't know what the heck I'm doing wrong...

Kim V 2008-07-20 3:07pm

Thanks Ro! The "pink" is ivory blush.

Thanks Joanie, that is a high compliment! Those are my class marbles, so won't be for sale. The flower pendants will be for sale in my Etsy shop.....just not sure when I'll get them up :D
