Falling off the face of the earth - falling leaves -
I have been in one ugly mood this week so i just stepped back and kept my bloggy mouth shut.
Dark skies in her eyes.

Despite my petulant mood this week I made a lot of stuff - including these beads.
The start of a necklace of autumn leaves and berries.
The base glass for the leaves is Cims Commando and Effetre Butternut. On top of that I layered on some avocado and raku frits and then wrapped them with too many fine threads of Cim's tuxedo black glass. Next batch - less black - despite the fact that Cim's tuxedo is my new favorite black glass.
The berries are coral with mixed coral frit.

When I make the next batch of beads for the necklace I think I am going to make some dark gray branch segments to go along with the leaves and berries.
The inspiration for the beads.
