After a weekend away to refresh and re-energize, I took some time to play with more glass yesterday.

I had a goal to make some "simple" beads to compliment all the ornate beads that I have already made.  The goal was to create a set of one color beads that I could put in creations and give the eye a place to rest.

I made four red beads, but only three survived.
The red beads are disc shaped. 
The two blue beads are more rounded,
and the yellow beads have a wider disc shape.

Then, I moved on to create a striped disc bead.  It was fun to create and I would like to do some more.  I think (if I can keep the bead release from getting on the bead) these will be great to use as a sideways element.

Then, it was time to have some fun.   I added some green stringer to this yellow barrel bead.  Then I started to play with dots.
My daughter said it reminds her of a clown fish.

I also wanted to find out what would happen if I tried to make a striped bead with two colors.  I think it worked out pretty well.

Now, I am starting to play with putting some of the beads together.  This is a choker that I found at a bead shop over the weekend.

Today, I went and bought a lot more glass.  Tomorrow, hopefully I can get back to my torch and make another batch.



  1. Love your work, your on a roll. x

  2. Your beads look so nice. Must have simple beads to put with the fancy ones.
    I would say you accomplished your plan quite well.

  3. Great job, Bethel. Love your beads.
