Donna Felker CGBeadrollers.

I made this Bracelet with CGBeadrollers from Donna Felkner.
I used the Round Bead Roller, and the disc. I abosolutely love these tools.

The Chunky Oval, is awesome for making a pendant or focal bead. When you flatten the Oval, you always have a perfectly centered bead, on the mandrel.

Not sure how I ever lived with out these tools before.

Raku Frit, and Etched Spacers.

I made this for my Mother in law this morning.It is her Birthday. She is 81 years old, and smart as a whip!!! Although she does not quite understand that I make the glass beads with a torch. Gotta Love her. The straight sided lentils, I used a very beautiful raku frit, and the company I purchased it from is no longer in business. The spacer beads are etched, which gives them such a nice frosty look. I have a similiar bracelet with butterflys available on my Etsy site. I sure hope she likes this. Maybe somebody in Church will tell her what she has. :)

Rose Pink Bracelet

It's my Birthday today. Still working on my birthday though, because lampworking, is what I love best. Can not think of a better thing to do, than to share with you my new round Beads,and disks, that I have been making. I love to make these round beads. The Pink glass, is such a lovely Blue, Pink, Rose color. Geez, how else can I explain it. Anway it is a wonderful color.
I raked the round beads, while still hot, and then reshaped. I also included a HEART clasp, just in time, for you to give to your sweetheart on VALENTINE DAY.
