2012 Pismo Bead Invitational

Something I’ve been working on to send to the Pismo Fine Art Glass Gallery in Denver, Co for the 2012 Bead Invitational.
Lawdy, but I’ve been procrastinating- have you seen some of the amazing work at this gallery?! I finally just bit the bullet and decided to send in what I was going to in the first place. I did decide to fire some more Bronzclay beadcaps since I was running low and got some great colors on a few of them. So here’s to pulling up my bootstraps and hoping for the best.

Post Etching – new beads

Here are some of the beads from a couple of posts ago, etched. My camera seems to be taking more grainy pictures for some reason..I’m trying to figure out what is different since I moved my photo tent to a different spot. I’m thinking I like them better etched, but everything looks better etched to me, haha!

True Blue

Totally smitten with Zimmerman Mountain Blue Powder Z-971, it’s such a luscious color! Really hating that it’s impossible to find w/o paying thru the teeth – the Zimmerman family stopped producing their colors years ago and the glass industry is starting to miss certain colors like this one and Z-99 Purple Rose Special..along with others. I plan to enjoy using it until I run out.
