I haven't posted in a while but I've been busy making beads and getting ready for the holidays. I've been experimenting a lot with gold leaf and just love the way it looks melted into beads and left unencased. What sparkle.
These beads turned out soooo cool. The blue is Vetrofond intense blue and it is very vivid indeed.
I don't know what is different about the way I'm taking pictures but all of a sudden black backgrounds are working. If anyone has any idea what I'm doing right let me know. I have no idea.
These are little jewels I did for Christmas and if they don't sell I will be completely content. I'll just have to use them for myself. The sacrifices we make.....
I decided it was time for some more purple in my life and am thrilled with Effetre medium amethyst. I usually use the transparent violets but have been drawn to the warmer, redder purples lately.
I used a periwinkle blue under the bubbles instead of white and like the way it adds a very subtle color of its own.
Joe's been busy too. He devised a unique cat bed for Gracie. She seems to approve.
A larger picture shows the construction. A bit different but recycling at its best. She's sleeping in it now.
