Awesome stuff! Brayjr, that pendant is TDF, and the turtle is just stupendous.
Earl, the heart with the ribbon (?) is fabulous. Love it.
James, the gauges are really pretty.

I've been playing too. Still learning, of course.

Tubing stuff:

I was intrigued with GA's Andromeda but couldn't find many pics of it so I went ahead and bought some anyway! Now I'm in looooooove. This is GA Andromeda over clear with NS Super Unobtanium for the mane and forelock. I wish the pic showed the sparkle better........thank God for sunny days!

I love the turtle Brayrj4484 and James, what is a "gauge" all about?
A little change in direction here with a blown bead.

Very nice, James.

Still playing with encasing tubing and blowing bubbles

I suck at loops, so I'm finding different ways of hanging them. These work, but need some refinement.
This top one I've been wearing and it works very well.


Liking the idea of a vine type hanger. Love this green glass, but the silver wire was a bad idea. Fireworks!


Working on the loopless tops, I've learned that there is only so far you can pull tubing before it's too delicate to use. But I'll rework this one. It's too pretty not to (IMHO).


Vine hanger again:


Liver. Yay. But liking the ruffles and the roundness:


What was I thinking??? An accident but I feel an idea coming on
