My New Favorite Bead, OR Why Not To Take Pictures Outside On The Concrete Patio Just Because The Sun Is Shining!

My new favorite bead! I was so happy when it went into the kiln, I just couldn't wait to get it out! When the kiln was cool enough, I took it out and...there was a mark on it from the darn mandrel holder. Oh, well, I still loved it! I was going to wear it on a necklace myself and make another one tomorrow! Look - what's that yellow ball in the sky? The sun! Let's try to take a photo outside, since the girl it out there with her camera too! Clink (not really the sound it made, but I don't know how to make that sound!). See the cute blue wavy ruffle around the outside edge? You can't see the little chip that was made from the concrete. I had a photo I took, but it wasn't so great - the girl sent me this last night and it was much better!

Oh well. The bead was made from a base of sky blue, and wrapped with aqua and marine wave. I striped it with silvered ivory, made the nice light blue ruffle on the side, and dotted it with cobalt. I guess I will make another. It will be better, anyways!

Sue this bead has so much great movement. You should make more than one more. And if it is any consolation, last January I tripped over the dog in my studio and dropped an entire shelf of little bowls onto the concrete. They made something like a clink sound too. I made something a little louder and naughtier than a clink sound. And Alice went and hid under the table.
