Hello Fellow Bloggers and lovers of hole-y glassy baubles!!!  This is just a short post….yeah, right!   I want to show you some piccies of the beads I made earlier this month at Leah Fairbanks workshop at Wildlight Studios in Brisbane.  I had the BEST time in the world!!  Leah is a totally amazing teacher!!  If anyone is in two minds about doing a class with this super-uber talented lady – sign up NOW!!!  Leah brought her delightful friend and assistant, Susan, with her and they are two of the loveliest people you will ever meet.  A HUGE thank you also goes to Tracy of Wildlight Studios, for her generosity and kindness in making sure I had transport to and from the studio and also to my fellow classmates – who were a tremendous bunch of AWESOME people!!!  You guys ROCK!!

Now that I have gushed enough…..here are the pics….includes my very FIRST aquarium bead EVER!!!

Just thought I would share with you a bracelet that I made late last year and have now just put it up for sale on my website.  There’s something very satisfying about starting out with some glass rods and sterling silver wire and creating a little piece of art right from scratch.  All of what you see in this bracelet has been created by me from raw materials – with the exception of the two sterling silver beads on either side of the focal and the little star charm on the dangle. I gotta say it’s really nice to see a finished product after having cut, shaped, balled, soldered, hammered and polished wire  into submission – not to mention the melting of glass into pretty beady things….lol.  Hope you like it!  For more info (inc price etc) click on “My Website” in the right hand column….. 🙂   BRACELET IS NOW SOLD!!! Thank you Alex!!

Yee Haa – I’ve got a bit of momentum happening here with bead listings…dunno how long I can keep this up for!  lol  Anyway – here’s a bit more eye candy for you to look at.  I have to go and do some more photo editing and cropping now before I can upload any more.  That’s the time consuming part.  Anyway, chatting isn’t getting it done – right? As usual, you can click on the website links to see more pics.

Catch you later!  Enjoy….
