New beads and jewelry

So it's been a little bit since I posted pictures. I thought you all might like to see what I've been up to. I guess I have been making beads and making them into jewelry more than normal lately. I have just been full of ideas I guess. I had an idea for this other bead awhile back but didn't have the proper tool so I finally got to try out that idea today. Wanna see?
Here you can see I took my "Blooming Daisy" design and tweaked it a little by adding a skull. Pretty sweet huh? Notice how HUGE the flower bead is next to all of the other flowers? lol. Oh btw did you notice I used RED? Yep sure did, and it's totally not as fugly as it looks in the picture. It's actually a nice rich red which is odd since it's labelled "light red". *shrug*Here was the idea in my head. Not too bad for my first one huh? It is freakin GINORMOUS! I was so freaked out I would lose petals from them getting too cold, but they turned out fine. I even did the try to get them to snap off test when they came out of the kiln. Looks like a good, sturdy bead ;)Here is the other idea I came up with when I was falling asleep. I really like the way it turned out. It was supposed to have a small lampwork daisy too, but there wasn't really a place to put it so it wouldn't cover up the daisy link. Believe it or not this took me forever! I changed things around, cut things off of headpins, moved around jump rings and stuff like that. It even has sweet teeny tinkly bells :D

Well that is all for now. I am debating on either going to sleep or uploading to my shops. I had a HELATIOUS headache this afternoon from that front so I got squat done. I spent most of the day into the evening in bed. It was AWFUL :(

Anywho, I will catch ya later.

Much love,

Genea
