'Poppies'

Lampwork Glass Poppy BeadsHere are the beads that I was excited about earlier!

On the train home from Cambridge last time I looked up from my book and outside were the most amazing fields of beautiful poppies. Just carpets of red as far as the eye could see. I knew right there and then that I would have to make some poppy beads.

So here they are. I was going for that kind of painterly, Impressionistic look. I wanted to convey the fragile, floatiness that poppies have. I decided on a clear base bead as I love the way the red shows through from one side of the bead to the other.

Lampwork Glass Poppy BeadsI'm really chuffed with them - they pretty much match the bead vision I had in my mind.

These will be for sale on my website at 8.30pm tonight.
