Right, I think I was overly polite......was the restriction one per size per person?? Or one per person, full stop? I went for the latter. If anybody ever makes jokes about Germans and towels or anything else, please remember this moment, lol!!

Anyways, you've seen him elsewhere, but he's Chalcedony on black, Size one:

Wowzers Sam, they are fab!

Here's what I did with some stringers pulled from frit (cant wait to get hold of the cane!):




I found that chalcedony sometimes puts a dusky grey on ivory near where you put it. I liked it though as it made it look "old".

I got them out of the kiln, and I am chuffed with the results but they are a pig to photograph!
Here's the first, I heated and cooled several times, then I raked, and heated and cooled very gradually..
         
And here's the second
         

Love this glass! Smiley

Here's a few from me - just had a quick play:



I'm really pleased with the colours - but not sure about the heart. The colours are great, but it's just so obvious where I had to add more glass ........ and doesn't blend in!
