Have I mentioned lampwork beads lately?

2.16 blues beadsWell, surprise!  I made more beads yesterday.  Here are my favorites.  Then I'm off to play with making jewelry and perhaps, if I get ambitious, figuring out how to use my acid etching to make matt beads (this is what you do when you, ahem, put your bead in the blanket too soon and it gets fuzzy marks all over it…not to mention flattening it when it was supposed to be round.  Sigh.  There is so much to learn!)

  2.16 green and light green beads  

2.16 orange and mustard 

2.16 torso   And, of course, the orange and mustard beads, which came out beautifully in the picture, seem to need to be clicked on in order to view them.  Do so.  I wish I knew why typepad does this! 

Now I'm off to play with making jewelry with some of my abundance of beads.  Have I mentioned how much I like making them?  Oh, and then to have the joy of figuring out a jewelry design for them – and time to do that!

Life is truly marvelous!

Are you doing anything marvelous today?  Won't you share it with us in the comments?  (leave a link to your marvelous thing).

thought for the day:  (ok – this is not the usual offering.  It's one of my own poems.  But I felt like making that the thought for the day…is that cheating?)

 

 

Tomorrow I will be

Wind remembering desert,

how sand speaks to itself

thinking no one can hear, sheds

tears which are not wet.

     Yesterday I was

Water, dreaming of my mother –

a yellow comet that turned

from ice to snow to sea.

     Once I was

Stone; but it took too long

to say my name – so I dissolved,

became Dust, Storm – learned

to see possibilities.

  Sometimes I am Sun kissing Wind

hot against soft skin, and

     Sometimes I am

Moon singing secrets,

tasting darkness, reflecting

in things with shiny eyes.

    Oh Tammy, the poem sings for me. There are tears in my eyes. You are doing wonderfully with the lampworking, but I am fixated on the moon singing her secrets. I have to hold these words close for a while and see what transpires.

    I'm so glad you mentioned about clicking on the orange and mustard bead 'red X' so we could see them……beautiful! Your poem was mesmerising….I read it three times. I loved the 'moon singing secrets' line too ~ 🙂

    and the little torso's, reminding me the venus of willendorf!

    The poem is so hauntingly lovely, Tammy! I want to read it over and over…and while I know some people do that regularly with poetry, I usually don't – but there is something almost tangible about the imagery, that makes me want to turn the words over and over…
    But I need to get going to the Farmer's Market night- so I will have to come back later, and savor this some more. Glad you're having a marvelous day!
