Is anyone still there?
Here's some wintery leaves I made, using this easy and effective tutorial from "Bobby" on Lampwork Etc:

I am still here as well. I am doing a variation on the 40 bead challenge to rebuild my skills.  20 bead challenge x 2 . Then I am going to try to make 20 matching beads in size and design but each in a different colour combination. I am also going to make a sample bead in each colour that I have. Some I have had for years and never used.
In addition I am going to relearn how to post photos on here.
  Thatís the plan!

Lovely leaves! I have made them directly onto wire before, but it's so hard not to melt it; might well have a go at that way soon.

I have forced myself to do my accounts this afternoon, so playtime definitely due tomorrow.

They are lovely Moira! Fluorite colouring. Iíve been sidelined by family matters, teaching myself silversmithing, and linocutting. Will get back to beads soon! 8)
Happy new year all xx

Thanks! Here's a better picture which should show how I did it better. (Memo to self, work looks better on a mannequin than on a grubby sheet of kitchen roll  ::). Marketing really isn't my strong point...)

I made the leaves and flowers on stainless steel wire, then coiled the wire. Then made the large hole beads to match. I sewed a length of silk to make a tube, then fed 4 lengths of cotton string down it to make a sturdy support. Then threaded everything on, and attached fastenings made in the same wire.

It's nice because you can position the flowers and leaves as you like, they grip the support quite well.
