Lots of New Lampwork Beads

Wednesday, March 05, 2008
It's been so long that I've almost forgotten that I have a blog. I've been really busy with my Etsy store, again. I've been trying to get stocked up for the move. Anyway...I got hooked on encasements. It the mix natural stone and lampwork concept again. It's all because Bob has been cabbing and slabbing in the studio again. Everytime he does, I start drooling at the mouth when I see his cabs. It must be that I'm having some sort of withdraw symptons because I'm not making jewelry right now.

The above would be wonderful with amazonite. The below goes with most of the odd hued green stones.
The below is orange and pink...there is nothing natural looking about it. I just liked the color combo. :-)

The rest of the sets match up with boat loads of different types of stone.

The below is one of my favs...it doesn't look like much in the pics....because it has a watery look to them close up. I think it's the clor...it's an odd shade of patina blue.

These two...well the above is another strand that goes with everything. The below has a garnet and olive jade calling.
The more pink...not even in a natural hue. :-) I mixed some up with some blue lace agate and kept them for myself though.

I just finished working on some fumed and silvered focals plus a couple of sets. I should have more pictures soon.
Now...the next project seems to be working with silver-laden glasses. Not sure after that...I've got lots of ideas. So who knows....mostly currently, since I'm not taking on any customs, I'm making what I want. That's greatly helping with burnout.
Ok...I hear my kiln calling me...I want to check what surprises she hold for me!
Have a happy, creative day!
