Looks nice.

Maybe you want to try Orange Elvis gradiating into NS Yellow. If you do try this, get the Orange Elvis that looks almost clear, as I find the darker orange batches to strike to dark for my liking.

Love the bead design Marcel I have been working on something similar but the hole is bigger for a scarf to slid through. They are kinda fun to make.

Marcel, thanks. I love the arrowhead and the marks that make it look like knapped flint.

these would make great ring holders, sit one in your window for when you are cooking and need to take your ring off. Nice!

LarryC, that's a beautiful marble. Could we get a couple profile shots of that marble? I'm trying to wrap my head around exactly what I'm looking at in your first photo.

Crass, on FB you will have the opportunity to bid on some of his outstanding creative marbles too. Larry also makes some of the most beautiful pumpkins in the Fall.

(OK, Larry did I say that right?) Kidding.

Dragonharper, nice work. UntamedRose, a very nice sculpture. I know the colors are not what you wanted but they ate beautiful. Marcel, your work as always is beautiful. This speaks to my tribal side for sure. Larry C, you may have outdone yourself this time. What an amazing marble.

Another dragonfly I made as part of a custom order.
