necklace or collier!

Glass Anarchy

Glass Anarchy is just that....a group of glass artists who live outside the box and are a bit independent. :)Each artist has their own unique style and love of glass. Some make fused pieces, others make beads and stained glass.

The group decided on the theme of a Garden to showcase the art from the group. Many are having some kind of special, so in order to find out if they are having a promotion or not, check out each shop.
Just to show the site and the different styles, go see...

Shop their stores on Etsy!

Just finished putting this together. I like the way it sounds. Just not sure I like the top bit. It was an interesting design. I made one similar and gave it away as a birthday present and they really loved it. Who knows you may see these in my Etsy stores soon!

Getting Ready for a Show

This will be my first Art Festival and its this weekend! I've got 2 more kiln loads to go but I think (hope) I have enough product. Its an indoor festival so at least I don't have to worry about the weather.

I got a drill press for my birthday. I know an odd gift but I have a friend who really understands me :) It came in handy with the pendants for Mother's Day.

A big thanks to Squidglass and Pollyfusia for sharing the technique with me for adding CZ's to the pendants. Another big thanks to ccvalenzo for sharing some dichroic advise. I have had fun playing with it! Its so good to be part of a team that is willing to help with advise and encouragement! Thank you.

Couldn't forget about Grandma. I've got Grandmother and mother pendants too.

My daughter loves these puzzle pieces so she made a bunch for the show too.

Had to add some more bling to these dichroic pieces with a some colored CZ's.

The frit pendants came out beautiful! Its hard to pick a favorite.

Also in the background are some soap dishes I made to go with my hand knitted wash clothes. We're putting them together for a spa package for Mother's Day.

This is one amazing Challenge
As a member of Creative Glass Guild of Etsy I wanted to work together with one of Etsy's jewelry street teams. Through the team leader group we were asked to join up with another team to help cross promote each other and I jumped at the chance! EtsyBead was just as anxious to try this challenge! This is the result and it couldn't have turned out better. And to think all these beautiful pieces of jewelry are being donated to HOST - an Etsy Charity that helps fellow Etsians in times of need.

Take a look at the beautiful jewelry made from the beads and pendants provided by CGGE and in a couple cases etsyBead members donated the beads and our CGGE members created the jewelry!

Vote for your favorite piece on Etsy

Challenge details

Earlier this year, Etsy Teams were requested to cross-promote each other, and etsyBEAD paired up with the Creative Glass Guild of Etsy (CGGE). A creative challenge to give back to the Etsy community was agreed upon. So, we approached the Helping Others Street Team (HOST), and the “Creative Minds for Charity Challenge” was formed.

CGGE members created gorgeous glass pieces and etsyBEAD members turned them into beautiful pieces of finished jewelry. And we need "YOU" to pick a favorite!

Today ONLY, April 23rd, we’re asking Etsy members to visit our blog and choose their favorite piece. We will be giving away small thank you gifts donated from members across all three street teams. Names will be chosen randomly and will be announced on Thursday, April 24th!

The poll opens at 12:00am EST (April 23rd) and closes at 11:59pm EST. Only one "pick" per person. No purchase necessary.
Pick your favorite piece here: Creative

Like one of the pieces you see? They will be available(some already are) in the HOST shop,, and all of the proceeds will be used to assist fellow Etsy members in need.

Thanks for picking your favorite! :)
And thanks to HOST, CGGE, and etsyBEAD Street Teams!

Lampwork Beads

My New Lampwork Beads

The weather has gotten warm enough for me to play a little with my torch. I love adding colors and swirls. Its so therapeutic to stare into the flame adding color and shaping the beads.
Both sets are going to CGGE &
etsyBEAD's Creative Minds for Charity Challenge

My Birthday

It was a great one even if its the 50th. My mom came up from Florida, my son and his girlfriend drove down from upstate. With my wonderful husband they threw me a surprise party! It was great to have my friends and family all together. This is the last one I'll count going forward until I hit 0 again :) AND this was the one and only SURPRISE party, the old heart just can't take it.

I had fun taking pictures this morning of all the beautiful flowers I got for my birthday. I just love the new macro lens.

Blue and Green

I miss the Carribean. This winter hasn't been as bad as other parts of the country but I still miss the ocean and the warm sand.
