I just listed three sets of beads in the SueBeads etsy store - two sparkles and one set of green frosty gumdrops! The gumdrop beads are fun to make - I will be glad to make them in any color you wish! You can pair them with other beads to make a bracelet that looks like candy! Or even use them to make a Christmas Tree ornament! I'm sure you creative people can come up with lots of designs!
Months ago, I took a class at ArtBliss given by Barbara Lewis of Painting with Fire. It involved learning how to make torch-fired enamel beads. I loved it - as you may be able to guess. Barbara did teach us how to fuse items into a flat pendant, but we didn't spend a lot of time on that process, as the day seemed to go so fast! I was making enameled pieces the other night, and due to my own ineptness (remember the big toe burn???) I was able to fuse these two pieces together totally by accident. Now of course, it isn't a usable piece. However, now that I know how to do it, I can see some pieces like this in my future! I can't wait to get more copper cutouts!
