I've decided to lower the standard to newbie level to try encourage a few more of the beginners to join in.

So, three simple beads in ink blue.

Left hand one is simply ink blue, with white and ink blue dots.
Middle one is ink blue with some white and then ink blue stringer in the centre with dots either side to cause the wiggle.
The right hand one is ink blue with dots and then a little bit of Triton silver glass on the edge dots.

Nothing too fancy, and certainly not to the same standard as the other beads in the challenge. But , you have to start somewhere, and to quote the national lottery, you have to be in it to win it.

Had another go at making one of Melanie's Indian Elephants - had to be made in heffalump of course, but she has ink blue over white spots on her trunk and an ink blue tail.




The flower in this one is also ink blue over white.

To bead, or not to bead? ..... stupid question!

At last I've managed to get my photos downloaded!  Bought a card reader.

I'm rather pleased with this set - it's a variation (more slapdash!) on a technique shown to us at the last Devon Flame Workers meeting by Jennie Lamb (Thanks Jennie Cheesy).  Mainly Ink Blue with other blues in the patterns.  Sorry it's a rotten photo, the camera refused to focus on it.

Those are very pretty, Nick!



I made a flower with ink blue and white petals. (Any idea what type of flower it might be? I made it more ruffled than the roses).

Thanks Lorna!  The picture's come out really dark, it's much nicer IRL.  One of the few things I'm quite happy with Cheesy.

Great beads!

I finally got some torch time and found my ink blue (for some reason I thought it was the same sort of colour as Leaky pen, couldn't be more wrong!).

The bluey green ones are leaky pen, apologies for not sorting them and photographing properly, but no time yet!
