Cali ... rockin the colors on the hearts. I love making hearts but they just don't sell where I live ... so I avoid them.

Vira ... both are beautiful but really love the pink flower!! stunning.

Default Dragon Head

I was experimenting with sculpture last night but only managed to make the dragons head. Time consuming to get the coloring by using 3 different frits on a clear rod.

Getting better at vortex pendants. Still need to tighten up the center. Would appreciate any hints/tips to do that.

beautiful undersea paperweight Laura, too bad about the crack, but it will make a lovely addition to your personal collection.

Finally put the soft glass away so I could play with my boro again - I love boro!

A flower...

And both sides of a new focal:



I'm off to go turn on the kiln and play some more!

No reason to be scared, just ends up a blob on the table if it doesn’t work out. I call that experience.

Thanks all.

This is my favorite place on LE. I always go here first.
It is great to see the growth of all who post here knowing what it was like when I made my first beads along with all the frustration that comes with learning. Especially when you think you have no artistic talent.

Not to mention, it's fun to melt things!
