Merging Media

Finally this weekend it was cool!!! I spent a couple of days on the torch, getting my control back slowly. Stringer control is undoubtedly one of those things that takes practice, practice, practice. I'm rather taken with my new Osibin bicone shaper. Why didn't I have one of these before?

My favorites of the few beads I made. The birds in branches motif has crossed over to glass now, too.

I may try to make some of these to offer on Etsy. They are fun and much faster (meaning less expensive) than most of the extremely involved beads I make.


  1. Very delicate, lovely work.

  2. These beads are out of this world !!!!!
    They are beautiful !

  3. You did a great job, dear Vickie, the shapes, the color and the birds in branches - I am very excited to see how your work on this will expand. And your stringer control is very good, keep going on.

  4. These are lovely. I wish I lived near enough to come and see you for a lesson and that I could take you around Whitby museum and show you all the places birds are used as patterns and motifs in objects (I think I have become obsessed with them)
