May I start?

...I'm starting to get the hang of colours, but I have to make pairs two to a mandrel, at the same torch session, under the same conditions. I can't get individual beads to come out the same on different days, LOL.

Wow! Those are so pretty! I especially like the last set, did you use frit? They are sooooo yummy!

Thanks so much Deb and Chris!

The top three were made with frit, the bottom pair was made with a twistie of NS Multi, NS Yellow, and NS Caramel.

Very nice, Marcel. What do you call that? A Dotty-Cello?

Excellent start to the month everyone.

Here's a few more "Organic" Series pendants that will be heading to ETSY this weekend. Cheers!

Thanks Gillian! I've always been so fascinated with the beauty that Mother Nature provides us, I just tried to recreate some of the natural color flows that she provides.

I haven't had anything on ETSY for quite some time now, so I hope people will find them.

Gillian! Lovely beads! I can SO relate to your two-at-a-time issue! I'm lucky to get that. LOL! I don't know how people get struck sets of 20 that look exactly alike! Again, so beautiful!

Thanks so much Lori!

GratefulGlass, your pendants are fabulous, and the sea turtle looks perfect to me!

Otter, wow...what gorgeous pendants, I love the shape!

Linda, beautiful butterfly!

I have a leaf to share....I was astounded when it came out of the kiln. It sure didn't look like that going in, LOL.

Well, as usual, you guys are amazing. I love all the pendants. I guess I'll take the plunge and post a couple of really newbie ones that I made this week.

The Boro S&T always amazes me! Such beautiful work and fantastic colors! I have been working in boro almost exclusively now for the past six months...coming over from world of 104. I know I have a lot more practice to go but here's my latest work with the WYSIWYG colors in boro....



Thanks!
