I love the firey colors you got in those lentils Ginkgoglass.

I'll play. I've added these elsewhere but I'm so happy with them that I'll add them here also.

Angela, I love that pendant design and shape. I wish Brent would give a class in my area. I sign up right away. In fact, Brent if you're reading. Where are your next classes....checked the website, couldn't find anything...also, since I'm already begging, when does the next DVD come out?

A friend of mine asked me a couple of weeks ago if I could make a palm tree. I said "I've never tried" Well, today I tried and I think it turned out pretty well for my first attempt. I don't know what the yellow thingies are supposed to be on the tree, but that is what she wanted.

So many gorgeous things in here so far. Love the pendants and the sculptures!

The mixed media pieces are also quite striking. Keep up the great work, folks!

I started working with boro this February. I would like to say that you all show great work! Lloyd - I can't get over the yellows and pinks in your first heart! Outstanding! Here is something I came up with this week. It is solid, not blown, but I love the color I got on it!

I'm hooked on making these twisty-implosion-type pendants after Brent's class. Here's another couple and a heart that I did using a Momka experimental that I got from Janelle.

Wow! Unikal, I love those marbles!Especially the bottom right. Marcel, I LOVE your buffalos!

Excellent implosions, Jodi and castaway! I pretty much fail at implosions. Do you use tube or rod for them?

Wow! So many gorgeous goodies since I stopped in last time!!!

Lynda, LOVE the blue focal!!
Kay, great trade!! That is gorgeous!!
Lloyd, great hearts...and I love the twists!
Chris, beautiful wedding gift and I'm sure it will be treasured always!
Joanna, I love the colors too!!
Angela, the middle one is my favorite too, but I really like them all
Leslie, no apologies necessary. It's always nice to see pretty glass.
Stephen, sigh....what can I say? Gorgeous doesn't seem enough.
Marcel.....absolutely divine! (And it's been wicked hot here too)
Unikal, I envy your precision! Beautiful work!!
Samma, I hope you figure out where those sparkles came from so you can make more!
Castaway, while they are both fantastic, my eyes keep going to that frog!
Tracy, if one looks within, there is no such thing as a simple boro bead Great colors!
Jodi, I know what you mean. I swear they expand in the kiln Good job!
Kdotson, I think your ribbon beads have a lot of potential!! Can't wait to see what else you come up with!

Here's a couple of hearts from me (Sorry about the big pics, I've been working on the computer for quite a while and I'm pooped )....
