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.
