'Storm Cloud'

Lampwork Glass BeadsThese 'Storm Cloud' beads were inspired by the weather over the past few days. It's been constantly raining and very grey and dismal. But this morning, when I made these, the sun was shining and it's been a really lovely day.

I took the photo in the late afternoon sun so I've got a bit of weather conflict happening here - storm clouds in the sun, but hey, juxtaposition is always good. And I love the word 'juxtaposition' so any excuse to type that is fine by me.

My favorite quote by an English professor of mine:

"(the author) was a master of the juxtaposition of ironic situations"

Love the beads too!

No storm clouds here in Hastings, just sunshine and fluffy clouds the last few days, but the beads are really beautiful though!

Lovely beads, Laura. We had so many showers yesterday here in Lincolnshire that when the sun finally came out, there was a gorgous rainbow, tried to get a photo but it doesn't do it justice.

Thanks everyone! I've got more beads cooking away in the kiln which I'll post photos of later. It's so nice to NOT be making cupcake beads!
