Lots of Lampwork Beads...it's a party on Etsy

Yep, I've been busy taking photos again. 

I make beady lampwork sets for jewelers but...I also enjoy focals and torching matched pairs...but...it seems that I've gotten kinda stuck in the same ol', same ol' for the past couple of years.

So...how do I break away from just making sets?

That's what I've been pondering on the last several days.  When I find an answer...I'll share. :-)

The below is one of my favorite, all time sets that I've made.  I really wish I could of gotten a better pic of them. 

The below is some of my retro beads...

When I pulled these (above and below) from the kiln...well, they are smile makers.  I got the color from layering glass...plus some fine silver.  Every once in a while...I even amaze myself.  Not me personally...it's the glass.  The way it moves and melts, how it comes together in the flame.

Have a happy, creative day!
