Is he starved for attention or what?
Since I have decided to continue lampworking, I treated myself to a big fat order of spendy, gorgeous glass last night. I've been making my 'Painted Lady' beads again and they require lots of color.
I made my first set 3 years ago and, you know what? I still love making them.
Here's a flashback:
Conga ~ My first set. I made these beads back in 2005 and it's still one of my favorites
Watusi ~ This is a set that was very popular with customers
Salsa - this is one of my favorite sets
Fairy Forest - I liked this one because the colors were so soft, a change of pace for me!
I love these beads because they require me to take very basic elements and a handful of color and come up with something new and interesting every time. Very challenging, but fun!
I'm working on some new element for these beads. They've 'inspired' quite a bit of replication, and these were also some of the beads that the infamous Ullja purchased. I don't know if she resold them as her own or used them in jewelry designs, but still....
So, just to keep them fresh I like to add a couple of new things to them from time to time. I'm pretty happy with the new ones. I'll preview them in a few days.
