This first set is called 'Chintz' and was made using another of my friend Tan's gorgeous frit blends. These are a really summery mix of pink and yellow roses, with a little freshly mown grass thrown in for good measure.
The second set is called 'Celebration'. I have used my favourite Reichenbach antique clear glass, which I've etched to soften it, then I've decorated each bead with a wrap of silver. Very classy even though I say so myself.
I also wanted to mention that I have a bead featured in the new issue of Beads and Beyond. This time it is my entry to their Lampwork Bead competition. It's a bead I showed here ages ago, but here it is again. It's called 'Jurassic' and is one of my fossil series of beads. I'm not expecting to get a sniff of the prize, but it was well worth entering just to see my bead on the pages of the magazine, especially as it is my most favourite bead, and a definite keeper.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

Without further ado, some of my oddly named bead sets;
Turquoise Tie Dye
You can find other oddly-named beads in my Bead Shop.
I have, this weekend, succumbed to Twitter. I'm holding Philip Schofield and his hedge entirely responsible.
Anyway, it occurs to me that Twitter will be another way for me to communicate when I have listed new beads for sale. Consequently, if you would like to be notified, you can follow me here;
Have a great weekend!
