These are the beads I sent my bead soup partner, Hilary Frye. Sadly, and embarassingly, the rust colored leaves wound up being unstable. The rest arrived in good shape and I can't wait to see what she does.I listed this little brown jug on Etsy a day or two ago and heard it was (very briefly) on the front page. I didn't even get to see it, it was gone that fast.
my black and green set.
acorn earring pair just for fun. I used Cim Maple, and boy, is it a pain to photograph. I think it's a little less amber and a little more green, but any changes in my picture I tried just made the color less like the original.
this set. The middle beads on the bottom are encased but the rest aren't.
I have a lot more new, but not a lot of space to go on about it. With no gas for the torch, I'm concentrating on other tasks I've let slide. I have some polymer clay beads to do the bench work on and turn into earrings, a pair of bog shoes to make for Joe, some sewing I did at Pennsic to reinforce and, oh yeah, I should get on some of the routine things I've been neglecting.
