~*Enchanted*~




My favorite frit (of the moment) is a Val Cox frit called Enchanted. These beads are made with a base of cim plum a very pretty purple then rolled in the Enchanted frit. I love all the different colors that are in this frit there's greens, purples, and blues.

Why, Hollow There





These beads are a bit of a pain to make but, they are really cool since the inside is hollow. You make them by making two disk beads side by side but with a gap in between. Then as you build the disks up they will start to cup into each other. When they get on a tiny gap between the two tops of the disks you can seal them off together as one big hollow bead. As you round the bead out in the flame the air that's caught inside will expand and keep the bead from deflating so make sure you don't have any holes in your bead.

P.S. which is your favorite? I really like the one with the hearts on it ♥

I ♥ U





These are really fun to make and I love the ♥ pattern on them. All I did was make dots all the way around melt them in then drag the bottom of the dot down on all of them. Then go back around and pull the top part of the dot down also and doing that gives you cute little ♥s.

What Do Ya Think?

 I'm not really sure how I feel about this one I like the colors but I'm not overly happy with the bead designs. Oh well I'm still learning I'm sure I'll get better at this bead making stuff :) On the bright side my grandma really liked them and happily adopted this necklace :)

The Accent Beads
And The Spacers

More Lampwork Beads :)










Is anyone getting tired of seeing these yet? I have more in the kiln now although I'm not sure how well they'll turn out (today was not a good lampwork day). Let me know if you want to see more. I'm going to try and get a few more jewelry related post out soon maybe redo my netting tutorial with better photos? Not sure yet but I will have more beads tomorrow (and will post them when i take photos) and hopefully I'll be making more tomorrow also.

Happy Beading,
Jessica
