A sea inspired focal bead

This is another bead from my winged creatures series; inspired by the sea.
The transparent base is a shining Aqua, clothed in a sparkling layer of hundreds of pure silver dots.
A protective layer of crystal clear gives the bead depth and the dots more sparkle.

My beads in an etsy treasury!


Friday, September 24, 2010

No beads were made last night...

...just when I wanted to get started, there were heavy rain showers and thunderstorms coming around and I turned off the kiln and concentrator. Coming up the stairs, I saw a lightning and heard thunder nearby...Three minutes later my husband's firefighter alarm went off!
This picture was taken from our front door. The lighning had struck into a house about 50 metres away from us into the chimney. It took more than one hour to get the fire out because as my husband told me later, they could not access the area where the fire started, it was in a small unaccessible "room" at the top of the house, near the chimney.
It was a very scaring experience...
Thank God no one was hurt.

2 new focal beads on etsy

From time to time, I love taking a break from making sets of round beads and dive head-first into making organic focals. Afterwards, my table is a real mess with enamels, foils, stringers, shards etc...
