Blue Twistie Glass Lampwork Bead

I couldn't have made this bead turn out like this if I'd tried. She just wanted to be who she is. I'm a little teapot, maybe. She almost went into the water pot before she became who she is because I honestly didn't know what to do with a bead that was having a mind of its own. She turned out beautiful and I'm hoping she will find her way to a jewelry artist who appreciates her soul.

Such a pretty girl...

I can see her dangling simply on a long sterling ball chain.  She is kiln annealed for extra durability and made of Effetre glass and has a layer of clear for added depth.

Freeform Glass Bead.  A definate coversation piece.

Enjoy ! She will be on Etsy tonight.

Necklace on a String - Lampwork Glass Beads

Designing from yesterday.  Happy Day at the Kiln this morning!  Yea - No cracks.....The fish and the heart bead have already sold.  I'll be listing the others on Etsy later this evening.   Kind of a fun one...I'm wearing it until shipping the fish and heart off tomorrow to a very special friend who will be sending them to her daughter, a jewelry designer (and Physician), who lives back East.  She is so very pleased with them and I'm so very pleased to have made them for her.  Enjoy - Hugs Suzanne

Heart Breaker

When I opened the kiln this morning I realized that once again I've mixed up my COE104 and COE96 glass. I have to get away from those reds and yellows because they are the 96 culprits when I'm mostly using 104.  The two are not compatible and will cause a bead to crack up the middle during the annealing process.  The surprise is that you won't know it has happened until it is removed from the kiln the next morning.

I don't know if you can see the crack in the bead in the picture. But, it's there. So...I can't sell this one or give it away. Therefore, the name, Heart Breaker.

I wanted you to see it anyway because I worked on it for about an hour...;o)  ha ha on me...

Love you all,

Under the Deep Blue Sea

This bead is many layers of transparent blue for depth and marshmallow white as the core. The murrini's I made myself and they are placed at random on both sides of the bead. It is very pretty in person...

It will be in my Etsy Shop and you can see it by clicking on the Etsy pictures on the right

Hope you enjoy the bead and are having a happy Easter!

Love and hugs

Small School of Fishies

Yesterday was a great day at the torch. I'm inspired by a recent class of Judy Carlson's at The Mandrel in Redondo Beach. I can't wait to get to the torch today to see what I can come up with. Enjoy !

GoGreen Expo LA Convention Center

Taking part in the GoGreen Expo explaining to attendees the benefits of drinking Alkaline Water.  Expo was three days long and extremely exciting. 

Gabe, my son, and I are the first two from the center and the rest of our Kangen Water team, Thea, Leila and Jerry.  Jerry had bone cancer and began drinking the water increasing the alkalinity of his body.  Became cancer free and stopped drinking the water although continued on a raw food vegan diet.  The cancer came back.  Started drinking the water again and is now, once again cancer free without chemotherapy.  Just one miracle story.  Leila was on her death bed when she found the water.  She is alive and well and the energy this woman has is endless.Posted by Picasa

As a Certified Nutritional Consultant, I am proud to have volunteered to help with this event.  It was life changing.

Girl, Parrot, Cross and Wonky

Hi All, I wanted something fun, colorful, spiritual, whimsical. I think this fits the description. These beads are for sale in my Etsy Shop which just been reopened. Please forgive me if you have been checking my blog and haven't seen anything new for quite a while. Or anything at all for that matter. Now that my new shop is set up in Venice, CA I can resume my passion for beads and share with you as new beads are hatched from the kiln each day. Enjoy!!!!! Hugs Suzanne
