Well this is what it looked like outside this morning. I have been trying to upload pictures all day and for some reason the computer keeps timing out before I can get them to load. The snow of course has pretty much melted off but it is sure cold and yucky out there. Will try to post some beads now but if not maybe I will be able to get them to load tomorrow.

Hi there. These are some new beads that I will be taking to the bead show in Marshalltown Iowa this weekend. I love the dragonflies and the new gem beads with them. The gems are hand shaped and I really think they sparkle like gems. The focal beads are etched in each of the sets with the deisgns left shiny. Enjoy!

This bead was very hard to photograph. Almost as hard as getting just the right things to make it were. I have been playing with combinations for a couple of weeks and am loving the outcome. The shiny leaves on the matte bead and the little rock beads to go with it. Any way watch the next few days for some other neat combos.

Hi there! As you know I have been getting ready to go do the Midwest Lampworkers Guild member show this weekend. It actually runs all month in the Hotshops Gallery in Omaha. I still have to pack and load the van before taking off tomorrow but I thought I would take a minute and show off some of the new bead sets that I have been making. Hope you like them because I really do love these colors. Well the guild show opening is tomorrow night so come on out if you are in the area. The last I heard there were 16 members participating so there should be some wonderful art.

Well these are not beads but I have been experimenting with a new technique that I have been reading about for the past year, and finally got a chance to play with. And they do make nice cabs to bead around. The way the colors swirl together are really neat if I do say so myself. Course they are not perfect yet but hey I am learning something new and playing with a different kiln.
