Some of my Favs!

I promised to post more pictures of the jewelry that I'm taking to Coyote Creek tomorrow. And to that end, here are a few of my favorites! Sometimes it's hard to let go of a piece. But I can't keep everything I like. These are more of the crinklized dichroic that I'm just enamored with. The violet pendant and earrings are called Violet Brilliance. The pictures just don't do the glass justice as they really do sparkle.





And I have to thank ALL of you who encouraged me to stretch and make earrings. I have 21 pairs to take to the gallery, along with 49 pendants. Yes, I've been busy.









This last pendant is from a crinklized pattern, called Puzzle. I think it's a "Standout", so that is its name.

Sneak preview at the gallery will be next Saturday, May 9th. I hope there is a great turnout.

Thanks again for all your kind words of support and encouragement. I truly value it.

Violette brilliance is right! I just love how you wrap these beautiful bits of glass. I'm afraid if I worked with the kind of glass you do that I'd stare at it all the time and get nothing done:)
