So time is marching on and my open day this Saturday 14th May is nearly upon me and I have been making beads like mad over the last few days and really enjoying myself! Which is good because home life is abit fraught with the potential of a massive leak in our house under the ground floor which may require major building work. So when the going gets tough the tough run to their torches!!
I have been working on alot of large beads, these babies measure up to 4.5cm in diameter!
I love these bright colours and am really pleased with the results and they look fab just hanging on a leather or cord thong.
I have always been lucky enough to sell alot of the 'pandora' style 5mm beads and was trying to find a twist on the origninal idea when I started expermenting with a raised bubble to create something different.
Some of them are created with Double Helix silver glass to create the patterns......
Others I have used my handmade Murrine in......
So how do they look on a bracelet? Well it would be a lie to say they stand upright like this on a bracelet that is not full but if your bracelet is snug with beads these bubble beads will stand proud like the one in this shot. I personally quite like the idea that they also hang and the suprise is there when you look closely at them.
So here is the Beach! And a picture of Milly and her Friend Paddy have a romp on the sand!!
