NEW 3D Flower Bead & MORE Encased Murrini Beads

Now that I’ve finished writing my newest tutorial, Making Beautiful Encased Murrini Beads, I have time to get back to the torch and make more beads! 😀

I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of making these…

I’ve also started making lentil focals again! I haven’t made them in quite a while, (as I was completely obsessed with making encased murrini beads for so long!), and I’m having so much fun with them all over again. I have more of these to come…;)

Encased Glass Flower Drop Pendants

With Fall approaching I thought these pendants would be pretty with some soft colors reflecting the season. Maybe if wish for it hard enough Fall will come early for us this year! 😀 It’s definitely a lot cooler in the mornings but by mid afternoon we’re still reaching the high 90’s 😦

Spring Bouquet Lampwork Bead

My daughter just told me that today is the first day of Spring! I thought for sure it was in April – but it is indeed today. I find this so funny because when I named and listed this bead on eBay I thought I was just pining for Spring, I didn’t realize it was already here – LOL! 😀

I will consider my timing kismet 😉  Now if the weather would just catch up…
