New Focals

Post  Tinker on Mon Jun 18, 2012 9:57 pm

Hello lovelies!
I've got my act together at last and put a load of beads in draft on Etsy ready to list over the next few days so I thought I'd show and tell Very Happy Hog alert!!

Ok first of all these are yummy and I want to keep them but I don't have time to make jewellery so I'm not lol. Made with my own orange murrini, the focal is a bit of a whopper at about 2cm tall:

Mooch kindly left me her skull press to play with after flame off and here are a couple of successes:

I'd love to make a load of them ready for day of the dead but we'll see!

And a couple of big focals made with that yummy raku frit blend that gives off all yummy colours. These are about 2cm tall too.

Also I'm starting to sell the stud earrings I made for the exhibitions, they've been so pretty all in a row I've been reluctant to let them go lol but here's one example, you can see the rest on flikr.

These are soooo comfy, they are so much lighter than you would think!

I do love a 'hog alert'. It means that there are going to be lots of lovely things to admire. I really enjoyed this lot, Tinker, especially the Raku frit ones. What gorgeous colours!

Those studs are so pretty and the raku frit is gorgeous against the black (or is it deepest blue?) bet you've had lots of fun making that little lot.

Somehow, the skulls remind me of the Invisible Man Smile The amber beads are superb - love that glow - almost makes up for the lack of summer this year.
