I've been playing with some CIM colors lately. CIM colors melt like butter. I love the fact that the colors are not "fussy" and really hold up to prolonged shaping in the flame! The first bead is Crocus over Gelly Sty Pink with Raku murrini from Avenue Beads. The second one is crocus base with Thompson Enamels.

I finally convinced my husband that our boys need a dog! Truthfully I wanted one just as much. We found Kato at the county animal shelter, he only had a few more days until they were going to put him down. When I sat down on the grass with him he immediately sat on my lap and nuzzled my neck. I swear I heard him say "please, get me out of this place!". He is perfect in every way. We love you Kato!!!

Lisa purchased some disc beads from me and has used them to embelish some of her wonderful resin pendants. There may be lots of resin artists out there but none compare to the originality that Lisa has. Here are a few of her pieces to tempt you...

We had a blast last weekend at Conner Prairie. The boys spent lots of time with the animals including 6 day old baby goats(twins). We got to hold chicks that were really warm from the incubator thingie they were kept in.
The boys strummed on a dulcimer and learned all about life in the 1800's.

I am very proud of both of these beads. I have always loved strong colors and these focals represent the kind of beads that I like to wear myself. Just one bold focal on a cute silver bail strung on a leather or silk cord - that is my idea of the perfect necklace!

I love seeing what happens to my beads after they leave the studio. This necklace is so cool, very feminine and light, I think it would look great with a cute summer dress!

I am really getting tired of this snow. Last week we received 12 inches(aren't we lucky). Yesterday another 2 inches fell. The boys however had a blast with Playdough.
Brody tried to eat it as every little kid tries at one point or another. It was hilarious as he just held his mouth open and said "Ucky"!

This is my newest focal bead for sale at Etsy. I love the way the rippled path turned out and the silvered icory against black is pretty dramatic too. While you are at my Etsy Shop make sure you check out my lampwork pairs. They are perfect for making your own earrings and I have jsut lowered the price on them too!
