Week 12 - Ringaling

I've been home sick a good portion of this week so when I wasn't sleeping I was playing. A new lady joined my bead group, she showed me how to make this ring. She did one similar to the silver on the right. Woohoo, this is fun! I did the silver, and then experimented with two tone, then alternating the twisting, etc. They aren't perfect but I enjoyed doing them and they 'feel' good on. I still need to file the edges underneath and tumble (or visa versa, I'm not sure which should be done first). I'll do more of these!

Week 11 - Pin playing

This week I had a chance to do a little playing. Someone had posted a tutorial that set off a light bulb. I have a bunch of unique orphan lampworks that I couldn't decide what to do with. Pins! The perfect solution!

Week 10 - Celtic

I didn't have alot of free time this week, so I made this quick set from the latest Step by Step Wire magazine. These were kind of fun, they gave me lots of ideas! 20 g ds.

Week 9 - Oolalah!

I'm so sad, I cannot get a good picture of this gorgeous dichroic piece. This is one of Laura's beauties that I bought back before the holidays. She was coming to visit this past week so I took the opportunity to wrap it. The wrapping complements the subtleness of the piece; the base is very dark, the image is a yummy blue, but the camera doesn't know what to do with it! If I can figure out how to get a better picture I'll take another one!
