I like both of those Smiley  I have so little decent white left that, when I finally get out there, it will have to be the accent not the main colour I think.  Have an idea in my head, not sure if it will work or not.

Here's mine... sorry my photo doesn't really pick up the dichro - it's very sparkly in real life.  And it also reminds me of a badger:

All amazing. The boro black and white plays very nicely together, Pat I love yours - it reminds me of calligraphy.
And Helen, the world needs more sparkly badgers - gorgeous x

I'd say we were definitely off and running here with some fab beads already!

Just to clarify for first timers (and those with memories like mine):

Yes, all you have to do is post a pic of your black and white efforts in this post.
Yes, you can post as many pics as you like during the month, sometimes its good to see an idea evolve (You'll only go in the draw once for whatever prize I get sorted out)
Yes, we'll take your fuglies too Smiley No harm in telling us what doesn't work
Yes, the colours can be just an accent (Sue, I have some Soft White if you'd like some posted...  Roll Eyes )

I'm just waiting for a bit more info about prizes but I will get something sorted out before the end of the month, watch this space....

Thanks but I don't use a lot of it normally so will manage with what I have.  There is the vaguest chance some of it made it into tongue pink pile - OH thought all clears should go together and all 'white' should go together when he helped me sort my glass out!  I learned the hard way to label everything BEFORE it goes in the shedio!

That was a much more measured response than I was expecting Smiley I was ducking and expecting some four letter words which didn't include 'frit'.... Smiley

You should have said you wanted my normal response to white glass!  I do try hard to keep my language appropriate - now I've been made redundant and living off what I can make from beads I'm having to limit my output of F words that cost 2 in the cuss box Smiley

But thank you for your offer anyway (no expletives needed).

I've really struggled to get any daylight today, sorry about the photo (but they are now made into pendants so can't re-do)

These are black with silvered white twistie - didn't know what effect I'd get but 'different'.  Might try it with other colours, as it has fumed the black in places.

There's a very unobvious drop down arrow just above the link, all the sizes should then come up. Took me ages last time to find it.
