Lampworking day #180. Finally beads. Finally Lauscha? Finally.

I've grown accostumed to taking these pictures in fear that they'll crack after coming off the mandrels.  ...

Luckily they almost always make it now.  Here's the size comparison to a dime: 

These brown beads are all from Fire Lady's Lauscha hand picked rods.  She was kind enough to tell me all about this special glass and teach me some gorgeous combinations such as this one.  This one she calls "Milky Way" and it's just gorgeous.  I threw in some Lauscha Cocoa to add a little contrast.  I like this.  A lot.  I bet it would also look awesome with aqua or pink... That might be in the cards soon. 

Do you like these?  They should be up on Etsy next week hopefully. 

These are definitely for earrings... These are that Lauscha Cocoa again.  They are probably as dark as you see in the picture here. 

I made this ring to match.  I think it's too peachy for my skin tone (olive) and it would probably match nicer on a whiter or darker hand. 

This ring I made KIND OF on a request.  A friend asked for a ring to match the individual beads she bought and she wanted it to be very chunky.  As I kept adding the glass for the ring to get bigger, I kept changing the color and I might have gotten a little carried away.  I would understand if she didn't like it, but I really do.  There are so many details and places to get lost in... I think it's super interesting and fun.  It's like a little glass painting.  :)  Enjoy.

Lampworking day #149. Amber earrings.

I just love the colors and texture in these earrings.  I think the pictures really don't do them justice. 

Snatch these up at my etsy store

Lampworking day #158. Some cooky birds! lol

Hey.  I've been pretty much gone for the past month... I'm sorry about that.  Work has been ridiculous.  And to top that off Octo, the love of my life, just moved to ChitrĂ©; about 250kms away from my house (thank you Google Earth) and capital city to the province of Herrera.  This week is off because of Mes de la Patria... pretty much all of our important dates are in November.  Today for example, is INDEPENDENCE DAY!  Happy day, btw.  Happy not to be a part of Colombia.  :)  hahaha Not that there's anything wrong with that. 
Tomorrow I'm off to Chitré to hang out with Octo, until Sunday.

Anyway you came here to see glass stuff, right? 

Here you go:

I made these about two weeks ago.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE that ring!  Hopefully I'll be able to put it up in the Etsy store for sale soon (next week?) 

I know I know... I'll just show you the ridiculous birds cause I know that's what you want to see... ROFL.

Yeah I'm rofling too.  Don't worry.  I expect you to laugh.

My apologies for these crappy pics.
