Enameled Beads and Another Kokeshi Doll

I’m starting to work on a few bracelets that I’m going to use brass in. I made some ivory/off white beads a while ago and needed some other beads with a little color in them. I decided to try some enamel powders. Little did I know that I would get an interesting reaction from the different colored enamels I used. It made the beads look more mottled. Me likes.
A few don’t have any enamel on there. I needed a few plain ones with silver dots too.

These are the ivory/off white beads I made a while ago. Not sure if I ever posted a picture.

I was going for something that looked vintage, like old buttons. I’m going to mix these with the enamel beads for the bracelets.

And one kokeshi doll bead. Still trying to figure out how to do these better and quicker.
