Seascape Beads

Haven’t made many of these in a while.  Here are a couple that came out of the kiln today.


Finding beauty on an ugly day.

 I get really blue if I don’t get outside nearly everyday.  This time of year in Maine is really dreary, especially on a drizzly day such as today.  It never ceases to amaze me how much beauty you can find outside on the nastiest days if you really look.  I found a few beautiful subjects worth photographing and enhanced the colors to make them more interesting. 

I haven’t been making as many beads as usual as I always find the just before Christmas season slow.  I’ve been focusing on new designs and what really inspires me.  Here is a new focal bead called “Romance Roses”.
