Yummy Beady Colorful Fun

I don’t know what it is about these beads…they are sooo yummy I could eat them. I am enamored by powder glass beads. I recently found a vendor at the Nashville Flea Market who had a large stash of them. He was showing me the little mold that they make them in and the tools used to take them out. Fascinating! Here is a Wikipedia link about the types and processes involved in making them. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Powder_glass_beads

The colors inspired me to make some torch fired enamel dangles for this necklace to match the red. Also included are some glass, stone, and ornate copper beads.

Then I got on an earring kick. More torch fired enamel, 22 cal. shells, turquoise, trade beads, funky colored faceted crystals, copper beads, some kind of iridescent drusy round stone beads…all kinds of tasty treats to go around.


Each one is a little bit different. Why blend in with the crowd? Wear a piece of art!
