I've Been a Glazing Machine....


Here are the latest....It is so exciting to open the kiln and find all of your hard work shimmering and sparkling inside the kiln!  If you have ever thought you might like doing something like this, you should definitely give it a try.  I absolutely LOVE creating beads that are out of the ordinary.....


The round two-tones are my favorites in this firing.  I tried a new glaze combo and Love them!!

New turquoise crackle glaze...


And some old favorite with a bist of a twist....

Lovely pieces. Would you like to come and do a marathon glaze round in my studio? Actually, it would be so fun if all of us bead makers could do a bead making, glazing, firing retreat.

Your new beads are gorgeous. Love that dark burgundy two tone. Totally wonderful work.

Thanks Mary.....There's nothing like taking chances with glazes and then loving them! As you know~ that doesn't happen all the time!

Oooh those discs are all so shiny and neat. I can imagine holding them in my hands and feeling the slick glaze. It's weird but touching beads helps when I'm stressed. Amazing work!

I can't believe I missed out on the turquoise crackle.

And those tab looking things are cool too!

Mary Ann, you do know how to satisfy the beaders!
