Works in progress

Here is a little sneak peak at what I've been working on as of late.  A few sets of beads basking in the sun.  These lassies have all been sanded using 400 and 800-grit sandpaper, glazed 3 times and are now ready to be strung.  I'm just awaiting a few more essential findings.

I LOVE THEM!! They are so pretty! I am jealous of your shiny smoothness :-)I guess that is what makes us good, we have different styles and techniques so we can be inspired by each other. I love it!

I do the toothpick and foam thing too. What do you think about the bead drying racks? I feel like they are too expensive when we can just do it this way, but I wonder if it is easier...hmm.

Are you rolling by hand or using the rolling rack?
Good Luck! I can't wait to hear about the show!
