First off I have been making some owls out of boro lately. This was borne from the eyeball crafting and somewhat inspired by seeing the last Harry Potter last week. I also have to give a nod to a very talented lady called Beth Knapp Tyner who makes the most lovely owl and bird beads out of soft glass (see her etsy store here www.BethKnappTyner.etsy.com ) for inspiration. Beths Owls are incredibly realistic and not is not at all what I am going for, but her form and colour are just wonderful.
Anyway, whilst the sun was out I took a quick pic of this dongle necklace. It is plain with no murrini which went against the grain somewhat but it is an order, so it had to be done. I think it came out looking a bit like drops of rain or bubbles of water and quite like it now its done. Unfortunately making the dongles clear did not really save me much time at all which was a bit annoying. I still have two half finished and one more to make which definitely keeps me out of trouble!
ps. I am sorry if I appear rude and don't reply, but I have not been able to post a reply on blogger for ages..... I have tried and tried and its just keeps making me log back in...... I shall try to sort it out, but in the meantime please know that I appreciate the comments greatly, thank you!
