I don't generally do scuptural beads, but sometimes they're just a fun break. I like seashells and leaves ... and bones. In honor of my Corgi's return to health, here are some dog bone beads, just up on ETSY!
There's also this set that has the colors of a medieval tapeastry.. I was playing around with different twistie recipes that people had shared, and came up with this. . A twistie is a gather of two or more colors of glass that you have stretched out to a thin rod, twisting as you pull, so that the original colors are twisted together. When applied to a base bead, particularly one that has had sterling silver foil melted in, the reactions can be stupendous!
