Dave-

I've been playing with some Momka shorts that I got for $10/lb a while ago. The orchid is Carmen Red with a Matador twistie. I'm going to try making a light blue one tonight. I'll post a pic if it turns out OK.

Okay, no laughing at the newbie. After seeing all the great stuff in this thread I am a little bit embarrassed to post these lol. I have been lampworking a bit over a year but these are the first boro beads I have tried. I am basically just trying to figure out what each rod of color does with clear, white, encased, unencased etc. etc. Loads of fun and I have been quite surprised a couple of times lol.




Now these two beads were made from the same rod of color. I have no idea why they turned out so different ( I really love both of them). I wish I knew what I did lol.

Don't be embarrased Sonja, we all started one day!
they are well made.
Wich color turned out different. I can be from flashing more or less, working longer, hotter or not, reducing flame etc
good start!

Yes the last picture with just the two beads were made from the same rod one right after the other lol. I would love to make a set of both!

And thank you for your kind words. I will be watching some videos, so that I have a better concept of the whole off mandrel thing.

holy cow, Frank, I feel like I just ran a mile and have blisters on my eyes. You need to work a little on your presentation. When you do different images of one object such as a marble, they could be consolidated into one file, front, side and back. That way you can fit a whole bunch more info into one post instead of making me scroll half way to Germany. Also, some objects can be very well described in one shot, maybe play around with your camera angle a little. On that anal probe, for example, you could get all the information into one shot.
Please do it, not only to help me avoid injuring my eyes, but also for your own benefit, because people will be more likely not to just scroll through your stuff and only glance quickly.

On a different subject, I'm really impressed with he way you've been progressing. I don't think you should be so harsh on yourself about the vortex, practice till you get your terminations perfect, but after that, I would go back to playing around a little with what interesting things you can do with terminations. Your bowls are starting to look really cool, too. I especially dig that little skull. And your Kreisel looks very balanced. You know if you make a perfect little egg in glass, you can spin it like a Kreisel on its pointy end. Try it sometime, it looks weird.

I've attached some images below as suggestions on how to present your work in a somewhat more eye pleasing way.

Wicked... The slain teddies are just sick, sick, sick (and awesome at the same time). LOL! I'm glad to see more chess pieces (I was wondering when the rest would come). The eye is really cool. It's my favorite piece.

Frank... Neat stuff! You're really getting the hang of it! I agree with Wicked about the photos. they were a bit tough to wade through. BTW... I'm not sure what an item or two is. I'm not sure I want to know! One kind of looks like a sex toy.
