Here is a new necklace and earrings that I finished up this afternoon. I am trying to get some new things done for my show on the 9th and 10th in Grand Forks, ND. I like how it turned out and this one the guys like but then it is symmetrical and they do seem to like that better.


This is the back of a fun bead that is all shinny from a reduction flame. While in my class a couple of weeks ago another student brought some old glass to share so I was playing with a rod of it. There is no way to know what kind of glass it is so it must be used all by it's self. Hence the fun shape rather than other colors of glass. I don't know what made me decide to see if the glass would reduce but I like the effect.



This is the front of the bead. Of course you might like one side more than the other.

Thank you Stephanie I really like it too and the bead is one of three I made that were simular and the last one I have.

That necklace is awesome! I love the strong color mix. This would look great with one of my Belly Dance outfits! :)
