After seeing the trees made by Pam Brisse of the Blue Between on Etsy,
I decided to challenge myself to make a few trees, and I did. This first tree I made using Gaffer glass. The background is Denim Blue and the tree is Chalcedony. I couldn't coax all the colors out of the tree that I was hoping to coax out, but I do like the streaks of chalcedony in it's infant color form.
I made this tree with a blue moon in the background. Want to guess what the name of the bead is? You got it: Once in a blue moon!
This last one, I do have listed in my Etsy store.
Can you guess the name of this one?
It's called Harvest Moon.
After I made these beads, I noticed something was feeling a bit wrong. I've only been making a couple of beads a day, because I realized that my muse is on vacation! I don't know where. I don't know how long she'll be gone, but I want her back!
So, my request to you is to CHALLENGE ME! I need my muse back.
Here's what I'd like you to do. Post an idea for a bead using colors, a technique, etc, and in a week, the good Lord willing and the crik don't rise, I will post my results. Be specific in what you'd like to see me make. If I have the glass and/or the needed tools, I will try. I want to grow as a beadmaker. I want my muse back, too, and you can be a great help to me, so, please,
