So many lovely beads on this thread!  I had a go with the BHB roller the other day, I'm really pleased with the results.  These are pale amber with gold leaf

I should have put mine in here too, shouldn't I?  Smiley

Rounds:


The oval and ribbed round (I get a beehive shape consistently if I don't fill it) from the 5mm multi BHB with 2mm mandrels:


These are from the 5mm multi BHB roller:


And these are from smaller cavities in the XL Curved Cone roller:

I have just had a whole week to play and catch up with stuff. Its been bliss, I have been working on my Harlequin Cab Tutorial which is nearly done and working on new cabs too. Some of the cabs in the pics are HUGE Smiley . We have been working on a pendant design which has meant grinding a substantial amount of the back of the cab away. Leaving a beautiful matt polished surface. The plan is to set in an open bezel so the glass will sit directly on the skin. We still have a way to go with them and I dont have a finished one to show yet but its all work in process and its been such a fab week I just had to show Smiley ... so some candy to show  Roll Eyes

This is one of the ones that has been polished from the back creating a beautiful satin frame around the cab its set in its bezel but waiting to be completed Smiley

Firstly, I feel I must apologise for being rather inactive here on FHF and especially in this thread. I won't bore you all with the reasons why. I am astounded by everything here in this thread, what wonderful beads you have all created. I also feel very proud, humbled and incredibly grateful when I see beads made with our bead shapers. I promise to be more involved too. So, I thought I'd add a few beadies that I've made over the last few months.

Just to say also that if you need ANY help with using our tools, please get in touch, I'm only too happy to help!!

My big hole bead shaper is my favourite of all the rollers and presses that I have. Can't wait to try some of the others!

Every year I like to take group shots of part of my stock, mostly because it's pretty! Grin

Just received my Interchangeable pendant bail from George  Roll Eyes
Popped one of my Toppers onto it.
Think I will be making more of these as presents.

Inspired by Julie (Lush) sea beads, this is my interpretation.
Ring and Pendant hardwear is S/S from George.

After doing Anouks silver day at Mandas the other week, I came home so despondent. I felt I had wasted money on me that would have been better used elsewhere in the house. I just couldnt get either the colours to sing or if I got a bit of colour the bead looked like it had been through a mangle!! I gave it a couple of days of feeling sorry for myself and guilty and then gave myself a slap and thought that it really would be a waste if I didn't at least try to put into practice what I had learned. I decided to stick with clio as the safest option. I have finally got there. It's still not perfect but if I was to lay out in a line all the other attempts you can see a progression of success Smiley This is yesterdays and I finally am happy Smiley I am also now out of clio lol

The moral of my wittering for me is take notes and go practice in your own time Smiley
