Never gets boring

Monochrome Lampwork Glass BeadsBlack, white and clear - possibly the three best glass 'colours' (or not) in all the world. In my opinion.

This bunch of nine beads are all different. Some are encased, some aren't. I had an absolute ball creating them! I never tire of making monochrome beads. These would look wonderful on a charm bracelet, don't you think?

My favourite one is the cased white bead with the black polka dots. Maybe someday I'll make a set of those ..... when I have hours to spare. Jet black dots have to be melted in soooo slowly you wouldn't believe. If you rush it you'll just end up with a feathery ugly mess. Worth the extra time spent, though.

It's a rainy day here. the guinea pigs are grumpy because they're stuck in their hutch. Martha has squeaked at me every time I've opened the back door today. She'll cheer up and forgive me when I take their lettuce, carrot and apple out to them later!
