Seeming we have lovely weather and living by the sea, here is my efforts for this months challenge - they are freehand as I don't have a press/bead roller  :(

All made incorporating Ivory & these are my first attempts on the sea theme & using murrini  :)

I do hope you like them & pictures are big  :-[

I went to a glassy open day a fortnight ago, where I met Nikki. She had made a lovely bead swap bead with coral. I told her that it has the same reactionary qualities as turquoise on dark ivory, so I had in my mind to make a mixture of discs.
Well I'm not sure who told me that two years back when I started out, Nikki....but you can clearly see it doesn't..lol!
This, however, is my this months colour challenge entry  :P

Sp many lovely entries already! I can see that this is going to be a popular challenge!

I played with dark ivory and shards yesterday, and made a focal and some matching beads.

Helen: love the triton beads.

These are all dark ivory.

I've decided I really like Gaia. Shame I only have 1 rod at the moment! Beautiful deep green-blue. Then there are Elektra shards over dark ivory pillows. I wasn't expecting them to come out like this and really like it!

(http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3732/9021176058_8a3fa8c8eb_m.jpg) (http://www.flickr.com/photos/kalorlo/9021176058/) (http://farm6.staticflickr.com/5324/9027572965_3f04fe92fd_m.jpg) (http://www.flickr.com/photos/kalorlo/9027572965/)

Finally, these are all a wrap of silver glass over dark ivory.

(http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7306/9027573211_aedbfe6fe4.jpg) (http://www.flickr.com/photos/kalorlo/9027573211/)

Notable: Boreas is on the right - reduces really fast and look what it did to the ivory!
R to L: Boreas, TAG blue realm, Gaia, Ossa, TAG deep purple, TAG Zeus, Notos.
I collectively called them Riverways.

These are ivory glass with val cox Gold Coast Frit. I love the way that the Frit reacts with the glass to give deep blue and turquoise colours.

Mark, you have demonstrated that the "don't put anything over ivory, it will look rubbish" rule does not hold for everything! Love those blue colours and reaction lines.

Speaking of exceptions to rules, brown is not among my favourite colours, and I dislike beige really quite a lot. So why do I love Dark Ivory so much? And one of my favourite glass combinations is ivory with transparent browns. I suppose it's that caramel-and-cream look.

Anyway, I made these last weekend; they are intended as a necklace component:

I had a commission to make some 3mm holed beads containing ivory for a necklace and bracelet - and got a bit carried away!  I have a few left over  ::)

A necklace I've just finished for my godmother. They're dark ivory and petrol green, and dark ivory and goldstone frit encased. All cored with stainless steel, and more stainless dogbones as spacers. The necklace itself is viking knit I made out of some copper wire I unwound from an old electric motor stator. Sorry for the fuzzy picture quality, it sort of matches the quality of my beads :/

These are my first proper lentils, they are not very good, but will be better with more practice i suppose.
All are made with some form of ivory, i think mostly light, but im not sure it was unlabelled.

Sneaking in here too.
A short while ago I visited the British museum to see their Ice Age Art Exhibition. A set of carved mammoth ivory beads where part of it. These are my first attempt at making my own version. Dark ivory with various surface treatments including bicarb and tumbled. I will try tea staining on the next ones.
