Practice beads

So I am on my sofa wrapped up in a blanket feeling not very well and tinkering on the internet! Realised I took these and forgot to blog them! I made these yesterday afternoon, more of the designs I have been playing with lately! I am not actually that happy with them and am seriously worried that the 4 I sold yesterday may have been a one off fluke! (God I hope not!)
That said a couple of these are nicer than the others mostly the top one and the bottom one. The top one cos I just simply like the colours Effetre Grass green etched seems really summery to me and the bottom one cos I like the pattern and the lines! I do think that the base glass should be transparent cos the etching really finishes the bead off (IMO) but I have to play with the different glasses as some of them don't keep their nice crisp lines!!

My Bullseye order arrived a little while ago but sadly it may be a couple of days before I get onto the torch now cos I am not feeling top ticket but hey ho at least I have been able to catch up with "The Apprentice" which I missed last night!

Right going now see you all soon and don't forget I would love to hear what you think about my beads above or any other colour suggestions

  3. Hi Sam,
    Those beads are fab, so stop worrying. Maybe it's because you're feeling under the weather that you are seeing things in a less than positive light. So, get well soon and get back on that torch.
