These are two beads I made this week. They are both purple on ivory. I cooked the upper one to turn the ivory a darker tan color.

I promised I wouldn't stop making beads! This one is white and blue with one of the silver glasses dotted on top.

This green, white and teal marble is one I made this week. Yes, I am addicted. At least this way maybe I can't lose all my marbles!

Mother's Day Marble

I took a marble-making class at Blue Moon Glassworks last month. Heather Trimlett came to Austin for a one-day marble class and a two-day button and bead class. I made this one today. It is about an inch in diameter. I am really having fun making marbles - but don't worry, I won't quit making beads!

This is one of the bead boxes I made out of a cigar box. Yes, I made all the beads also! I'm taking some of them to Titia's store today. I need to get some money back so I can get more glass to make more beads.:) Really though, I am quite the glass ho - you should see the stash I have. I do share though - Kate has been making some awesome beads and buttons - check out her blog!

I made this bead into a magnifying glass and it is going to Mud Pies Pottery today also. It has some very pretty purples in it.

These are some of the bottlestoppers and a letter opener I made. They are going to Mud Pies Pottery in Salado today. Titia has agreed to sell some of my glasswork there. I'm very excited. One of the pieces I took there previously sold already!
