Beads made on August 21, 2013

I wanted to play around with dichroic, so I made a bead with dichroic strips around it.
I also used reduction frit cobalt blue bead and finally played around trying to make flower, but didn't look too good. Love the pink though.

Rabbit Stained Glass suncatcher

We are invited to house warming of my ex-next door neighbor's new house next weekend.
I didn't know what to give or bring. Since I know they love rabbit and collecting rabbit things,
I decided to make rabbit stained glass for them.

I hope they like the rabbit. I tried not to make it too "girly", so I put blue ribbon on him :)

Snowman with matching hats, Aug 10, 2013

I thought I would try making snowman's hats by myself. So I played around yesterday.
But, somehow although the hat matches with the scarf, I don't really like it as much.
But, surely it was fun and I'm so loving these little snowmen..

Beads made on August 7, 2013

I got very excited because I wanted to try making snowman beads, which I plan to make it as Christmas gifts. Since I've never done that before, I decided to practice from last night.

Here are the beads I made last night: 2 snowman (1 is better than the first one), clear blue bead with feather murrini made by John Rizzi, pink bead base with California poppy frit made by ValCrox frits, and finally heart shaped bead.

And one of the snowman bead dressed up with his hat. I only have this color "flower bead" which I turned it upside down. I can get different color hat, maybe red to make it more "Christmas-y".
