More Leaves and More Classics

Today I'm having a break from the torch and thinking about my next wet felted vessel.  But I haven't given in to my elbow tendonitis - my torch has been working overtime, and I'll probably give it another workout tomorrow.  I've been making more of my bead "classics" as well as adding to my inventory of leaves.  Here are some leaves that I've produced over the last few days.  

For whatever reason, the pink leaves really appealed to me, so here's a shiny set of 5.


Another set of 5 leaves, this time in neutral colors.  I made a set of these for myself awhile back, and I'm in the process of turning them into a necklace. I plan on selling the necklace, but I'm liking it an awful lot. Mine or yours? We'll see if I can let go of it...

Here are some 3-leaf sets and some larger leaves.  




I have more leaves, but they're waiting to be etched.  Are you sick and tired of leaves yet?  Well, here are more of my classics - a couple of Bronze Age beads and another Seaside bead.





All of these beads will be available in my Bead & Button Show booth (1221), so come take a look if you're planning on being there!  But hurry - last year, a lovely woman from Japan came by early and just about cleared out my entire stock of leaves!

And now I'm off to recharge with a cappuccino, mom and fur kids in tow.  Have yourselves a happy and creative day!

Hey Shirley! Good to meet you in person last weekend at the NorCal meeting. Your leaves are delicious - they almost look ceramic. Good luck at B&B - wish I was going!

Mallory, I'll make more pinks!

Patty, great meeting you too! Thanks for your kind words. One of these times you'll have to go to B&B - it's amazing!

Hi Shirley,

Your beads are really nice, showing great creativity.
The colours are very pleasant, with a fresh tone and classy.

Best regards,
