More Pendants

Well, I have been busy with the drop pendants again. I am loving the results so far, and the lovely Sam from the FH forum has annealed some for me, and they survived! I will sort out my Etsy shop very soon to see how they get on...
In the meantime, here are a few more...

Signature beads?

I have been experimenting with a new bead shape to create these long dangly pendants. I am having a blast making them, and I think they are becoming my first "Signature" bead style. The shortest one of these lovelies is 4.5 cm, that's over an inch and a half long!
Oh, and the green one on the right is now living around my friend Nikki's neck, and very pretty it looks too!

New glass!

These beads have been made with a glass called "Aurae" which is an absolutely amazing glass. The glass rod is pale transparent pink, but when you melt it it goes all shiny. It can be as shiney as a mirror or have a softer, silkier look as it does here. I love it! Even if it does dent the bank balance quite badly.......

No, I haven't disappeared completely.........

I have just been extremely busy! I have, however, found a few little pockets of time to play with molten glass over the past few weeks, and here are the results!
