Well I have a new obsession. I have been working on these the last few days. I made a few of them last fall and I wanted to make them in every color but have just now gotten to making them. I am etching some of them as you can see by the top picture. I made some focals to go with some of them for sets today but only a few things did not go well in the studio. It was cold out there and then my son and husband kept running in and out so that my feet and fingers never got warm and the glass kept popping all over the place. I finally just quit.

I know I know it has been forever since I had new beads. Sorry! My hubby and I spent the weekend working on a new display rack for my trays of beads for shows. It isn't done or I would show you but it is taking a while to paint the little edges. These beads were actually done last week and it just took this long to get the pictures because of all the drafting and cutting and of course shopping for wood. It is amazing how expensive wood has gotten and how little choice is out there. The extensive rebuilding along the gulf coast is a big part of the reason so I guess I should be glad I can get anything.

Thought I would show off some new beads and a bracelet I finished up tonight after having it sit on my work table half done for a week. I really like how the beads came out the silver dots are lots of fun. And after all the comments about the green beads I guess I am naming this bracelet Frog Skin.
By the way just so everyone knows I am just like most everyone that has emailed me about my New Year's Resolution I fall asleep when I drink a beer too, so I think it will be really hard to drink more. Oh and the last beer I had with a very large meal gave me a horrible hangover without ever giving me a buzz so I do not think it would help much with my creative juices.

He says that all really famous artists were either drunks or drug addicts.
Okay so we discuss that I can not drink more beer because playing with fire while drunk could be hazardous. Jeff (hubby) also starts to try to come up with famous artists who did not have problems. He comes up with Norman Rockwell and Brandon goes to the computer to check, only to find out that Rockwell battled depression his entire life and his first two wives committed suicide. So we again go back to the idea that it could be dangerous to torch while drinking and Toby (the friend) says that of course that many of the really famous artists worked in less dangerous mediums. Brandon however notes that painting huge paintings require scaffolds and one too many could cause a fall. So here we are back to the fact that famous artists drink or do drugs so I guess I am going to have to start drinking way more than I have been.
Think I should make a New Year's resolution to drink more?
What a way to get famous though.
