Another new necklace.
Flameworked glass beads, a big pink moonstone, amethyst nuggets, smokey topaz, rock crystal and sterling silver.
The glass lentil beads each have a core that is a combination of Cim's Commando and Cim's Plum. They were decorated with threads of black and then rolled in large raku frit before pressing.

I am delivering it to the gift shop at the local museum this week, unless of course, someone else gets it first. Email me.
Whoa boy, good news and bad news.
My sister called my home Thursday night, while I was out torching, to say that she was tested and indeed she has the H1N1 virus. This was not good news seeing as we had spent the entire day together on Saturday, including sharing a tasty plate of Mexican food at the public market. Sure enough, Thursday night I started coughing while making beads at open torch. By Friday morning I had all the symptoms and am now a miserable, gooey, hacking lump of sick. The good news? My 19 year old daughter, who was also here last weekend did not catch it. Strange how it works, that one of us got it and one did not. Could someone please fetch me another box of kleenex and a bag of Ricola sugar free cough drops?
