New eBay lampwork beads

Every year about this time, I find myself daydreaming about Irish hills clouded by mist. Maybe everyone wishes they had a bit of Irish DNA this time of year. The below is a set called Celtic Mist and it is currently up on eBay.

I used two Double Helix glasses, Gaia and Olympia Rain. I didn’t strike Gaia because I wanted the smooth green. I did strike Olympia Rain, it’s a bluish-sage hue. These are larger beads than I normally make. The coins can be used as focals or as chunky beads. They aren’t thick, they average about 7mm so they are light enough to used in a bracelet or a totally awesome neck piece.
I spent the last couple of days cleaning beads, running errands, and packing up packages. I did take some time this evening to finish up as set and do some test beads. I'm getting in the the mood again to make some jewelry so...I think it's time for me to make a few be for me. It also might be time for me to switch torches for a while as well. I can hear my silver bench calling me.

My hubby will be traveling a lot I will have lots of quite time??? in the studio to work. Who knows...maybe I might take a weekend and join him in LA. He's going to be there for a couple of months...he's home on the weekends. I'm really not that fond of LA, it's ok but not on my list of happy cities to visit.

Ok...I'm off...have a wonderful weekend!
