Nuggets of Joy

































New big, chunky beads for a charm bracelet.

Started with a black barrel core then added on a little square of silvery dichro.
Heavily encased with clear, transparent teal and transparent grass green.
Finally shaped into faceted nuggets using my trusty stainless steel cheese knife.

I had forgotten how much I like forming the facets on this style of bead.
All the dichro and the divots give them so much sparkle.

Make More Birds

Good thing I still love making these little glass birds.


































I attach the bails with 2-part epoxy.
































A bird in the hand is worth... $18.
