 Beads in a makeshift transportation box on their way to the kiln.
reminding me of a complicated abacus
Beads finally in the kiln ready to be annealed

Along with the turquoise beads I have created some
 bright, bold, funky beads.
Opaque rich red, carrot orange, petrol green, lime green and 
transparent smoke grey.

I have been busy making a batch of new beads. Combining turquoise and ivory colours in opaque and transparent glass.
The turquoise is so bright and refreshing, It makes me think of warmer climes with the sea glistening gently in the hot sunshine.

Before the rains came I visited a friends home and found a beautiful rose growing up the wall in their garden it was called "sunrise". 
The bud starts off a deep red copper, it then blossoms into an array of subtle pinks, oranges and yellows before reaching a dappled pinky white. The spiral shapes of the petals unfurling also caught my eye.

The perfume was also amazing!

I thought I would post a few photos of bright and colourful 
glass beads that I have created. 
They make me think of sweets that Mr Wonka might have made
 in Charlie and the Chocolate factory.

The flattened glass beads on this necklace remind me of quality street wrappers!.
