This thing is just awesome, what else can I say? So far the octopus (octopi?) have been very popular - this new neck piece sets off the bead very well. A heavy braided leather looking thing with an interesting latch - a perfect compliment for this chunky piece of twisted tentacles. By one of my favorite glass artists.
Getting ready for a show at Myrtle Beach - hoping this sea shell will make a pretty good impression. Rather large, and a lot of detail to this piece. A hollow bead, so altho it's a pretty big piece, it's not overly heavy. Love the colors on this one. These shells are a surprise, by one of my favorite glass artists.

Spent brass shell casings are used in these funky little trinkets our grandaughter (21) has dubbed "Tennessee Bullets". I like that name. And the beer bottle caps are now a set of refrigerator magnets. They came with zany little sayings in each one, sure hope my younger son will send me some more!

The color in these beads is really, really great. What can I say? ... Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. This time it worked great! But I gotta leave boro for awhile and get back to makin' LOTS of beads. Soft glass is just more consistent for me.

Oh Boy! I love something new. Trying to design something new and different, but still cutting the price by being selective with sterling silver use. These are sooooo comfortable to wear, and they have a natural, organic edge. Little sterling details finish off awesome boro beads and leather. Enjoy.
