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.
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!
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.
