I'm always in for a giveaway! I really love the headpins, so that'd be my fave thing. But, when it comes to the beads, I think pairs are what come to mind the most...since they're so light, they're perfect for earrings.
Jen
p.s. there are some of your glass beads in my post from last night. :)

I'm new to enameled beads, so anything works for me! I love eveything that you make. Can't wait to work with these.

I like sets of multi-colors. Thanks for doing the giveaway!

I love pairs, since I make a lot of earrings as gifts. I also like brighter colors, like that blue bead sitting in the back. Beautiful!
Marie Cramp said…
I love them! You do such a wonderful job on them. I personally think it would be good to do earring pairs... just a thought!

Cool giveaway!! These beads are just lovely. I think I would go for medium sized beads - 10-12 mm. I prefer brighter colors in enameled beads but that's just me.
Gardanne said…
I'm in, one can never have enough beads.
Hey, I love your beads! In big beads I'd be looking for coordinating beads but not exact matches and pairs for earrings. Thanks!
Katie said…
Loving your enamel beads! I love that you have made some to match the resin pendants you made - that was a nice little surprise in the mail :o)

I would like more different shapes - like the kinda flat round one that I've seen in a couple of listings. Round is cool, but sometimes I like a little bit of a "funky" shape :o)
Janet said…
They are Wonderful! I would be using med size beads and in yellow and orange! Thank you for this generous give a way!

What a wonderful give away! I like pairs and love the blues, purples and greens. They are wonderful
Thanks for having the giveaway- they're gorgeous! I lean toward smaller beads but the headpins are fantastic too!
cjvierow said…
Pairs for earrings are nice. It would be neat to have a mixture of your beads--pendant, glass and enamel to put together. CJ
Kobey said…
Thanks for the giveaway. I like the headpins too. The multi-colored sets are also great.
Love the giveaway, thanks! I like pairs for earrings or adding a statement to a necklace. I like multiple colors to give the colors depth.

Hi Sue, Great giveaway! I love them all but I think 4 small pairs in contrasting colors would make a nice necklace.I see a design in my head. Check out my site this weekend. Going home for 2 weeks I have lots of new goodies to share.

Hey Sue! I love your enameled beads. I've not played with enameled beads before, so I'm not entirely sure what my preference would be. :)

Thanks for hosting such a great giveaway! Have a terrific weekend!

Beautiful beads! What a wonderful giveaway. I guess for me, color is always what I seem to look for first. Unless I am looking for pairs. Or I need a specific size. How's that for a helpful response!!!:D Hee Hee. I crack myself up sometimes. Color, Sue. Thanks for a fun opportunity here! Have a great day!
Judy said…
Sue, you know what I would love are beads in a roundel shape. No one makes them that I know of, in different sizes would be really great.
TesoriTrovati said…
I love the mixtures of colors. I like it if they come in pairs, in case an earring emergency arises, but I am just as likely to break them up and use them as singles as well, so an all mismatched batch would suit me just fine! I love all the soft colors of the enamels. But how amp'd can you go with the colors? I am thinking really bright! Enjoy the day! Erin
Francy said…
I think it would be nice to have one large and two med. to make into a bracelet.

Nice give away.
ikkinlala said…
I like fairly small beads in blues, greens, and browns.
Greer said…
Mixed colour sets. Also mixed sizes and maybe mixed shapes. Thanks for the giveaway chance!

This is my second try at trying to win enameled beads. Failed miserably the first time. I'm going to keep trying until I get some. And probably buy some too. That's always exciting, getting those packages. Feels like Christmas! and then you remember you paid for them yourself. I think I would like an assortment of sizes and colors for my first experiment with enameled beads--I would put them all in one piece! Like a necklace.
Silver Parrot said…
I'm generally a blue/green kinda girl, but I'd just be happy to win and will enjoy whatever you send if I'm that lucky!
Doreen said…
The colors of those beads are so pretty. I was thinking it would be cool to have some enameled leaves.

Beautiful beads!!! And how GENEROUS!!! I like all sizes. Usually like to have a small matching pair for earrings, then some larger and smaller to put in a matching necklace and/or bracelet. I'm not so much matchy-matchy myself, but a lot of my customers like to have a full set.
I have to go with the smaller blue, green, and brown, also, but turquoise and purple are usually my first choices. I'll appreciate ANY color, any time!
I love the variety and earthiness of these. I'm not really into anything too bright and flashy so colors like the ones in the give away are perfect!!
Oh girl, sign me up! I've seen your enameled beads in person and that are scrumptious!
kat said…
Sue, I love your enamelled beads but also love your components too, the enamelled birds and butterflies.. The headpins are so versatile as well. Thanks for your giveaway..

Hi Sue! Thanks for having this wonderful giveaway. I like pairs because I like making earrings for all my friends. Pastel colors would be pretty for the Summer months.

Happy Accident!

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!

Art Elements February Theme Challenge - Birds of Prey

Cathy Mendola chose Birds of Prey for the theme this month, and it's a pretty awesome theme. You are going to see some amazing work by my team members and the guests who have participated this month! I had plans of doing more than I did, as indicated by the purchases I made for the projects I had in my head. However, I have been doing some work in my house, so whenever time permitted, meaning after work and weekend hours, we were pretty much doing the room renovations. One of them is going to be my study/studio, and I seem to be foiled at every move by trying to get some work tables. So I have only one small project to show you this month.  But first, the purchases!

This first Bali carved owl totem I got from fifirosedesigns on etsy - I wanted to make a mold and make my own cabochon to use in a necklace. However, I really did get around to doing that. So, I purchased the owl heads below.

These owl head cabochons are from ArtisticVariations84 on etsy - they are just fantastic, but …

January Art Elements Theme Challenge - Moon

Lindsay Starr chose moon as the theme for the AE Design Challenge this month! Great choice, Lindsay! I knew I had a pendant from Vincent and Nooma from Inviciti that I wanted to use, and I have some moon face polymer clay cabochons I had made a while ago, so I was all set!

First, I used the pendant to create a simple necklace. I haven't strung beads in a very long time, and being that I enjoy simple designs for myself, I set out to find the perfect red beads. I chose faceted red jade from Golden Age Beads.  I also spied some other beads I really want, but am basically on a buying freeze so....maybe another time! I separated the red jade beads with some cute titanium spacers I had picked up at a bead show a long time ago, and I highlighted the pendant with some gold alcohol ink to make the moon show up better!



The second piece I made was influenced by Game of Thrones. Late to the party as ever, I just started watching it. I'm on Season 3 Finale - I use it as a carrot to make my…
