Bit of a slow start this week...

Love the green goddess Vika. Those are really pretty Anna, not sure if I would have guessed they were yours (difficult once you actually know). They are different from your usual beads but then again the overall style is quite you.

Here is a bead I am really pleased with, inspired by a painting of flowers I saw in a magazine.

 (http://i145.photobucket.com/albums/r225/josephinewadman/P6051350.jpg)

And a ridiculously pink necklace I made up with a lampwork heart that I wasn't sure about but my daughters loved. Needless to say they like the necklace... although the 14 year old usually has good taste so hopefully some one will like it.

They are lovely, Becky!
My friend asked for a big Jupiter bead. My encased Terra went really pastel this time. And a couple of big Kronos beads (excuse the fact they're not cleaned!)

Nice work so far. Love the Jupiter bead - are you going to do the rest of the planets now.

Here is another of the flower garden style beads from me. Did a lovely purple and blue based one too but I bent the mandrel pulling it off and cracked the end!

Gorgeous beadies on here, Becky love the terra tiles, Mary really nice, especially the pale terra, Les - you sure your are not making biscuits, they look so edible, I made myself a stamp similar to the one you are using, used a bit of wire and bent it round, it works.  Josephine - I am loving what you are doing with those flower beads, gorgeous, bet its sold already.

Couple of sets from me then, first ones are blue ink with SIS, second set were difficult to photo but they are incredibly pink, they are made with the CIM Blush glass, gorgeous colour - if you like pink, my photo doesen't do the pink colour justice.

I love the tree goddesses Claire!
Lovely beads Kathy, I do admire your spiral ones.

I got a new press, a faceted barrel. So I made some Terra beads, and experimented with some boro.

I like the orangey boro ones Mary. Anna those are all really pretty. Miriam those are lovely beads, the long ones especially, I always struggle to get a shape I am pleased with.

Here is another of my marquis 'flower' beads and some lentil ones in the same sort of design that I have made up as pendants for a sale tonight.

I love your flower beads Josephine, I think they would look nice around my neck...in a decorative way, not a strangulation type way :-\ you know what i mean

Great beads carol, those colours are fab.

This is my first encased set, I did them in an odd way, but it seemed to work for me
 (http://i49.photobucket.com/albums/f280/delica-girl/yum.jpg)
they were very hard to photograph, so you might not be able to see them very well!

Dash it, I get to follow Ray with my first three goes at implosions! None are useable, the orange one has a big crack, the ends are ragged and the shapes are rough but I'm quite pleased with them and will be having another go.

Me to start then, just a quick post as I am in the middle of packing to move on Friday, at last.

Couple of handshaped focals using lots of silver.

Some nice beadies there to start the week. Here are my contributions

A little octopus, using a sort of opalino green I found in the mix pack I got when I started
(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v281/shirleygiles/DSCN1615.jpg)

Some opal yellow with silver and kronos. Starting to get a bit of a reaction on these.
(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v281/shirleygiles/DSCN1617.jpg)

Another implosion that I should have left alone before I tried putting flowers on it.
(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v281/shirleygiles/DSCN1616.jpg)

And a simple bead with light ivory and copper green, that I think will be the first of many using that combination

Hi guys,

Well i managed to drag myself to the torch and kept the olbas oil away, thought it might be flammable!!

here is what i have been playing with

Some fun little rainbow ice cubes

(http://i122.photobucket.com/albums/o262/beads-on-toast/rainboecubes.gif)

Some more foil lined sea shore focals, including a dusk focal and a half etched focal

(http://i122.photobucket.com/albums/o262/beads-on-toast/foilfocalsshell1.gif)

(http://i122.photobucket.com/albums/o262/beads-on-toast/foilfocalshand1.gif)

and last but by no means least, a vessel like bead, it has one hole (oh how very dare you) and i intend to create a bail and fix it in place in the top, leaving the bottom of the heart hole and headpin free.
I shall post the results next week.

I had a go at making a marble on Friday after watching a u-tube video that was posted somewhere here on FH. It's about 25MM diameter. I didn't get the dichro to do what I wanted but I was pleased with the shape. Mostly I was pleased with not dropping it on the floor like I had done with my previous marble attempt. :-)

All gorgeous on here as ever, I swear the standard is getting better and better.  Have to say Tan those lentils are bloo*y gorgeous, I love red, why don't we see more of your stuff.  Steph love that particular colour combination as well, very wantable.

A few from me then,

First one called "Geisha", I don't know yet what I think about this one

(http://www.lesleymcfarland.com/Beadies9/IMG%5F4216%5Fedited%2D2.jpg)


Next a focal, there is a set to match as well and I am reluctant to sell them as I have become rather fond, so they might have to stay with me for a week or so.

(http://www.lesleymcfarland.com/Beadies9/IMG%5F4211%5Fedited%2D2.jpg)


Lastly details of a set I made which also has a matching focal (think I am getting boring now, matching sets an all)

Great work everyone - S&T gets better every week! And I love the pink caramello Jaq!

Two simple focals from me - I managed 40 minutes on the torch last night and am quite pleased with these two!

I didn't make a huge amount on my course this week, most of the time was watching Kate. I've got a few beads that I made using the Spectrum but I haven't photographed them yet. I did make this set of effetre beads at the end of the last days bead making and then I made them up into this necklace on the last day where Kate taught her wirework techniques. ( I forced myself to go for a different colour combination, I usually put blue with green but this time I used it with pink and purple)

I got a load of frits earlier this week, so I've been experimenting a bit. These are my attempts at faux boro beads

The first three are iris gold on cobalt, black and rubino, encased

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v281/shirleygiles/DSCN1669.jpg)

And these are iris amber green, on black, cobalt and rubino, but with a layer of silver leaf as well. Unfortunately two have cracked so next time I'll have to put them straight in the kiln. Promising though. :)

Wow, what gorgeous beads are here already!
Angelique I love your chintzy roses!
Cute ladybird. That's so clever Carol.
Isabelle, those are amazing!  :o I really like them! In fact, I've never seen a bead you've made that I haven't coveted.  ;D
Becky the colours of your top two beads are amazing. Really rustic....... and so textural you just want to reach through the monitor and give them a feel.  :D

Here are a few I've made this week. I've been on my hols from work for a couple of weeks, so I've had a good old play.  ;D

Gorgeous beads everyone, my camera batteries died so I haven't taken any photos of new beads, but I made this lot last week with a view to making them into a necklace.  Haven't decided yet quite how it will look so meanwhile they are all strung on a bit of leather.  I just need more hours in the day and I will be able to do everything I want to. ;D

Here are a few I finally got in the kiln and tidied up.

Still having a bit of a grey love affair with this one - love the red that came out
(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v281/shirleygiles/DSCN1683.jpg)

This is what happens with Vetro odd lots - avocado and dark ivory with a few bits of random silver leaf
(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v281/shirleygiles/DSCN1692.jpg)

And, believe it or not, Sam's strawberry caramel frit came out like this on light ivory. Don't know if it's a reaction with the glass, the swirling or being a bit propane heavy, but I love the lilac tones :)

I have made a "Faux Geode" ha ha, as I don't have a grinder and I like them so much I have made a bead which I think looks a bit like one.
Sideview as well.

I haven't posted here in ages as I lent my digital camera to a family member who kindly returned it broken grrrrrrr, I've borrowed my neighbours but it's quite a fancy (ie complicated one) so pics are RUBBISH... anyway - I've been making vessels (LOVE making them - so addictive)

Here's a tiara that I made for a friend from work.  She asked me knowing I had never made one before and trusted me to produce something that she liked with very little guidance.   :o.  Both her and her mum loved it I'm very glad to say!!

I actually made it back in July but as she didn't get married until yesterday, I've had to keep it under wraps.

Absolutely stunning work everyone!

I'm posting this on Sunday night in the hope that you've all gone to bed and won't actually see it, and then the new S&T will start in the morning and my bead will get glossed over.  :D

This was an experiment, and there's loads wrong with it.... too thick walls, grubby glass, bead release still inside the blue bead, a shocking shape and nasty holes.... but I'm so happy I managed to make this bead inside a bead that I'm almost skipping! So I'm sorry to lower the standard of the Board, but just indulge me if you would. Haha..  :D

Ok, as I found out how to do this, I´ll start another S&T as well. This vessel was made to the last month´s cahallenge, put the photo was taken just yesterday. Black Effetre and Double Helix, Kronos2 I think. The vessel and a few other beads made at the saame time are my very first experimenting with DH.

Well, here we go, I thought posting in 'my first, my last' was a bit silly after only three weeks at the torch, so I'll wait a while before heading there...but here.....my first ever beads, from the session with Mike at Tillerman's - the three at the bottom left were the very first - the nicest dotty bead (not shown) is actually on a necklace already, wearing my wonky beads with pride :)

I like the silver and grey, very nice and the hot hot hot red beads are also very cool.
Good beads Richard and I see you are very busy with the jewellery
Josephine - well done, they do look very pastel and delicate and unlike others I have seen.  You are almost there ;D

Couple from me - I messed up the flowers on the first one but liked the colour combo very much so might have another try, flowers are so unforgiving, if you mess it up whole bead is ruined.

(http://www.lesleymcfarland.com/Beadies17/Green%20flower.jpg)

The next one is just one of my standard type focals.

(http://www.lesleymcfarland.com/Beadies17/Blue%20silver%20focal.jpg)

Oh and I have bought a doorknob kit so maybe a bit later or tomorrow I will show you the first one. ;D

Great beads Marijane and Angelique, fab colour ;D wow Richard, you have deffinatly been busy, love the green swirls, and your focal LesleyMac :)

Cute silver cores Josephine, took me a while before I realised you put the core on afterwards :-[, I though you melted the glass onto the silver, spent ages wondered how many times you had to try getting the right amount of glass onto the silver without it going over the edge of the lip.... :-\



Haven't had much time to play, but have really got into the heavy encasing to make waves and distorting the inner core.

Gorgeous stuff ladies

Some from me then

These two beads are ready for electroforming, the next step (nerve racking) is to apply the electro conductive paint which costs a fortune by the way.
They look quite boring at the moment but I will show you the results and then see what you think, of course it might not work at all, we shall see.

(http://www.lesleymcfarland.com/Beadies18/Beads%20for%20electroforming.jpg)


This is the one door knob I have made, its not great and I shant be using it, but technically its fine, I just hate the design, trust me to try flowers, so easy to mess up.  Anyway I would recommend the make a doorknob kit to anyone and its fairly easy to do, I think.

(http://www.lesleymcfarland.com/Beadies18/Door%20knob1.jpg)


I am into bicones at the moment, so here are a couple I have done this week, the second one has dots of fine silver around the middle which I am rather proud of.

(http://www.lesleymcfarland.com/Beadies18/Gaia%20bicone.jpg)

I made these beads on Monday (day away from the office), I don't normally post on here but here goes anyway, I have put these on a couple of other beading forums my apologies if you have already seen these.
(http://i193.photobucket.com/albums/z129/HairyBeader/SilveredLentils.jpg)
These are made from Avocado, roof tile red, Ivory, some sort of trans green and fine Silver,

(http://i193.photobucket.com/albums/z129/HairyBeader/Focalflower.jpg)
These focal beads are a mixture of glass and metals, Ask, Effetre and DH, metals are silver foil and copper, basically trying my hand at a few new things

Thanks for looking

Stuart

I am not sure what happened, I thought I had replied to this but it seems to be lost!

Eceryone has done a fantastic job, I am really impressed.  I have done a few rounds now and I'm really pleased with them and I have done some dots and some frit, but how on earth do you encase?  I tried and moved the whole bead!!!  And how do you do swirls?

I made my first bead in my own workshop/studio on Thursday and did everything in a rush!!!

I have signed up for photo bucket so I hope this is the right link!

The orange bead looks a bit like a squashed rose or spiral but I am wearing it with pride!!!

Great work from everyone. That blue set is stunning Shirley. All those sets are pretty Caroline. Lovely colours in those beads Les, can't wait to see the focals.

Here is some jewellery I've been doing with the hearts and beads I posted a few weeks ago.

These are going on a new website promoting the work of artists from Devon, Cornwall and Somerset. If any of you west country bead/jewellery makers are interested let me know and I will send you the details.

Gorgeous beads Les - I really like those!
Fabulous hearts Jospehine.  ;D

I haven't posted anything here for a while, but I have new presses and new glass, and I just had a week off work, so forgive the hog!

Here are some 3/32 beads, which are unusual for me as i work on 1/16 mandrels, anywho

(http://i122.photobucket.com/albums/o262/beads-on-toast/chunkyleatherbeads1.jpg)

and here is the bracelet i made with the beads, a simply strand of leather which has been knotted together, no findings, just the leather, it is really soft and i just dont want to take it off!

I'm not sure if the s&ts are just for beads so I hope its ok to put my recent work in here.

Haven't been up to much recently but did get this out today, I've been working on a couple of projects which are very time consuming so haven't been able to do much else. She/he/it really needs some antenae things!

(http://i90.photobucket.com/albums/k261/stacyemma/Stained%20Glass/Butterfly.jpg)

I did some organics for the first time in ages.

Here's my latest cylinder - they're getting better since I read the tip about making a bead at each end then filling in the middle. Still plenty of ppp needed, but I'm chuffed with this one!  :)

I had a whole day at my torch yesterday and loved every second, but when I went to take my beads out of the vermiculite I saw that they really are pony.

Does everyone go through a phase where their stuff looks really gauche and rubbish next to some of the show and tells here?  I know a lot of people have been doing this for ages and I just need to practice and I only get 1 day a week to get going so maybe some patience is in order!  I want to be an expert NOW!!

Right now that foot stamping sesh is over, here are some of what I made yesterday.

Sorry about the size I give up on Photobucket(!) these are coming up enormous!  I tried resizing them but it hasn't made any difference.

Everyone has been busy. I especially like Lesley's beads, Maryse's frit set and Dora's. Oh and Anna's floral bead. And Manda, those long beads are fab, I'm never satisfied with the shape I get when I try that.

Here is a necklace I've just made. I'm going to save this for the exhibition I told you about.

Love those beads Julie :) and your twistie bead Colette, love twisties ;D

This is my first goddess bead, no arms or legs and not as voluptuous as Lesley's, she started out as a heart which went badly wrong, I didn't want to waste the glass on the mandrel so thought I'd have a go....totally inspired by Lesleymac's, nowhere near the same league, but I like her.

Unfortunately, I can't show you my very first beads.....as they were annealed into oblivion!!  I won't repeat the story....but have posted the sorry details in the general discussion section :(

Anyway, here are my first surviving beads which I made yesterday....

(http://i219.photobucket.com/albums/cc197/Ljg2565/Beads/IMGP1510.jpg)

(Sorry if that photo came out really large - how do you adjust the size?)

My first bead is the blue one on the left, round to the final one at the other end....and they only took me about 3 hours!!

Have made more today, so can't wait to see them in the morning.

I've been doing a little stringer practice, and am quite pleased with this. I do need to clean it a bit more, though.

I've also got some more frit nuggets, made with more of Sam's lovely frit :)

Woaw, gorgeous beads as usual !!!!
Miriam, I love those floral in particular the white ones,
Sarah, those odd lots are great, I haven't started to play with them yet,
Dora, those sets are gorgeous, I love them both,
Jo, great twisties, I played as well with twisties, but nothing conclusif yet, your are great, and those snowbobs are so cute  :D

I don't post very much, but I took my courage in two hands and inspired by Sarah this is what I've done (ignoring my surounding ;D) - I'm really sorry for the bad quality of the pictures.

This Christmas will be my first anniversary of lampworking.  Needless to say, most people are getting glassy gifts...  ;D  This is what I've been working on this weekend.  Another two winestoppers, some bookmarks and a couple of bracelets yet to be done...

Here's a few from me - Totally Autumnal

and a couple of focals. I think the tube is the best one I've made in this style. Very pleased with it.

This is a selection, and most are all ready spoken for, only one has made it onto my website.

Oh wow, lovely lovely beadies everyone,  I have been playing with my Karen Leonardo Petal Puller tools, I have to say this is great fun and is brilliant for teaching heat control.  Anyway I only had an hour last night when I came home from work but I made three, not too brilliant ones, however I can't wait to have another go as I have hundreds of ideas.  These are in the order I made them and I think improve with practice.  Long way to go I know and I guess I should wait till I am perfect but I think its fun to see the first ones and then hopefully as they get better.  ;D

Shirley - gorgeous beads.  The bottom is my favourite.

Emma, I love the shades in those lentils.

My recent stint at the torch produced these.  Going to brave the temperature in the cellar again tomorrow...  :-\

Etched to reflect the frost outside!

Post by: Shirley on December 24, 2007, 09:32:02 AM
Where is everyone? I get to start the thread again :D

Ok, at the risk of you all getting fed up with me, I have some more beadies. All I can promise is that there isn't a single scrolled tube among them - couldn't get it to photograph in the fading light! :D

I had to do another tree bead. I suspect it won't be the last either. The postie came halfway through this with a signed for parcel, so he had to come into my studio (garage) while I held the bead in the flame and signed ;D

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v281/shirleygiles/DSCN1820.jpg)

Then I got to playing with the old iris gold. Love that stuff.

Title: Last beads of 2007 S&T
Post by: LesleyMac on December 31, 2007, 03:47:30 AM
My last beads to show in 2007, Happy New Year to everyone :)


A cone bead, technically the best I have done so far, it is 56mm long, sorry for the poor photo, really hard to get a decent picture of this one.

(http://www.lesleymcfarland.com/Beadies24/Cone%20bead.jpg)



This bead is made with my new tool from Marie-Louisa, this is the unflippable tool where the holes are not centered so it doesen't flip over when you are wearing it, the bead is about 35mm diameter.

(http://www.lesleymcfarland.com/Beadies24/Plum%20pendant.jpg)



Lastly I have made a tree bead, this one is a present for a friend. Its about 45mm x 40mm and took ages to make. About an hour I reckon, mostly its getting the initial lump of glass on that takes so long.


(http://www.lesleymcfarland.com/Beadies24/Tree%20bead2.jpg)


Thats all mine, lets see yours.
