Adventures in jewelry making

Riffing on Red September 28, 2015

Filed under: Archives — Fresh Baked Designs @ 11:11 am

      Pleased as punch to receive my new order from Lima Beads…they have some of the best selections of recycled glass beads and pendants…those luminous faux beach glass pretties. Gorgeous colors and huge variety of shapes and sizes.

      I love these long pendant drops. Can’t choose a favorite, but was thrilled when I noticed that the red ones went perfectly with the tiny glass seed beads I’ve been using lately.

               Here’s another look at my new favorite color combo…red and turquoise.

     Last is a look at an experiment from yesterday…trying to tin the tops of some beads. Not happy with the results and sad that I lost a few beads in my efforts.  While I’m attracted to silver tinning in jewelry, I find it immensely frustrating to execute well.

  The one on the left may end up on a long chain…not sure about the blue glass yet.  Hmmm…may try putting these two orphans together in a necklace.
