Latest Beads

Last week I managed a few solid days in the studio making beads. I am trying to build up some stock for my Facebook trunk show which is coming up on 28th of this month. It will be in the group Lampwork Bazaar, if you are not a member but want to join in the fun just contact me through my Facebook Page: Art Glass Beads by Judith Johnston with the e-mail you use for Facebook and I will send you an invite. Please don't leave it until the last minute though as it can take a few days for new members to be approved by admin. I have been playing with some new designs including some organic focal beads, these are still work in progress but I am enjoying making them. I am also trying to find my way back to making raised floral beads but I can't remember how I used to make them... Obviously I have some idea but all the little tweaks that made them my own have faded away, ah well I guess I will just have to start over and see what comes out!
