Wow you really got the details of the beard and mustache down so well in that portrait piece. What color did you use for that?

Cool pieces

So what would you call this 'a flock of skulls' or a 'clutch of skulls'

Mary, I work in a bar. That is my new phrase! Thank you.
Dave
I got some good news today. I dislocated my knee on the 26th. I thought I might be facing surgery and a long rehab. I went to the Ortho Doc today and it looks like w/ a bit of rehab, I'll be back at work in a couple of weeks. It has scared the hell out of me. I'd do the "Happy dance", but I've been advised against it. I'll let the Snoop express it for me.

Here are my first tree pendants. I had fun trying something new and was inspired by a friend who put copper wire trees in a pendant. Please ignore the light reflection, I didn't take the time to set up my tent.

Love the pink boro beads, simple is often best, you can do so much with them.

First decent sized boro galaxy 1.5 inches:





The dichro burned out during shaping, I have some good CBS dichro coming this week. I had the Bravo almost maxed out to make this I think that 1.75 inches is going to be the max for it.

hi everyone! Be easy on me....these are the first boro pieces I've done in 2 1/2 years!

I like the shape but not the color outcome of the first pendant. I like the shape of the heart and some of the color, especially the purple pink if its Mai Tai. I can never get good color from that one. I've made marbles before but only in 104... This one is my very first boro marble. I'm happy because this one ROLLS! lol I'm thinking I won't use clear with this design next time

Duane

wow Roy nice to see you pushing the size limits. Do you think the cracking is from colour issues or lack of heat getting into the core? Sorry it broke.
