Two More Sets Of Beads

Two new sets…..AncientWatercolorHollows2This set has five hollow beads, used transparent enamel on them and boiled it a bit to give them a rustic look. The first time I made these I used different glass and all the beads came out of the kiln cracked due to incompatibility between the glass and enamels. Oops.

LisaDonation This was the set that had all the cracked hollow but I made enough extra beads and added some that I made previously for this set. It’s also got a shank button.

Beads and More Beads

More beads that I made this week.


Turquoise enamels with copper blue frit on top. Reminds me of a sea mist.

RegularCoralShardBeads2 MangoCoralShardBeads2

Two sets of silvered coral shards on ivory with dots of fine silver and etched.


Cosmic copper shards on ivory with dots of fine silver and etched for a matte look.

GardenBeads-Etched2Garden beads – Copper green base beads rolled in turquoise enamel, a layer of silver foil and purple rose frit. These have been etched.


My bad attempt at striking color glass beads. They should turn a bunch of different colors. I’d be happy if mine turned any color.


Another set of biscotti and coffee grounds frit encased.

Black-AuraeStringerBeads2Black beads with thin strands of silver glass around the middle.
