More focal lentil beads on Etsy

"Silver Play" series focal lentil bead.

Is this going to become a habit? I don't know, but I just posted four more focal lentil beads (1.25") on my Etsy store - take a look and let me know what you think.

The first one is another in my "Silver Play" series, where I try to limit myself to just ivory glass (dark and light), and silver leaf, and see how far I can go with just those colors. As any bead maker knows, when you mix silver and ivory glass you get some amazing reactions.

Next is a focal in my "Canyon" series, inspired by images in the book "The Hidden Canyon: A River Journey", by John Blaustein.

Next are a couple of autumnally-inspired focals with warm, vibrant colors.

"Autumn Jewel" focal lentil bead (SOLD).

Finally, a wire wrapped pendant that's ready to slide on your favorite chain or cord.

"Green Goddess" pendant (SOLD).

I've been crazy busy getting special orders done, attending the Mountain Art Guild's "On and Off the Wall" gallery show in Ben Lomond, and getting ready for the Bargetto Show coming up really soon. Oh yeah, Joyce and I were thrilled to get an honorable mention for our collaborative piece entitled, "Transitions", bestowed by George Rivera, curator of the Triton Museum in Santa Clara. Photos of that piece soon, I promise. Joyce pulled it all together, and it features some of my electroformed leaves, her patinated fine silver leaves, and a very rustic fine silver clasp complete with miniature acorn.

Speaking of the Triton, go and see Ken Matsumoto's show there now. I haven't seen his work in a few years, but I really like what he's done. The Bob Nugent paintings show very well with Ken's sculpture - it's a really wonderful exhibit.

Enjoy the day!
