Glad you like them - they started as a personal challenge 'cos my Mum loves Daffs and I wanted to make something for her birthday.  Got the hang of them just in time to give her a lovely pendant yesterday with Daffs on one side and Pansies on the other - forgot to get a picture of it though!   The bottom one is a ring topper for me and the others are a commission for someone for whom Daffodils have a special meaning.

Hi kaz,

Love the first of your pendants. The colours are wonderful.

Not sure why it's posted in the colour challenge thread. The yellow is obviously very subtle.  Grin

Perhaps Kaz's gorgeous eye candy should be in the Gallery instead? Huh

Yellow has never looked so good!

I am still trying to re-learn how to make beads with my new kit, I found that the gaffer frit seems to react with some of the yellow and green colours from effetre giving this effect, (the one on the right is etched)



I also had a go at doing the yellow in a murrini but seem to have difficulty melting them in on the dual fuel torch.
