end of the day hearts

the last bead i make, every time i am at the torch, is a big heart focal. i use all the stringer bits, impatiently popped rod ends, shorts and leftover bits of frit to make one last bead. hearts with wings are my favorite. i keep a bead blog, to visit go to: http://lucindastorms.blogspot.com/

The Silver Ink Series

I just can't get enough of silver foil on ink blue this week! So, I decided to make a series called "Silver Ink". The photos show 2 sides of the same bead.

Neptune and the Mermaids

Oh, I know plenty of people have done mermaids before now-- I just wanted to try because my daughter was a mermaid for Halloween this year. These are my beginning ones. I'm thinking I might play around with this idea this week. I tried making these less 3-D, something a little flatter so they'd be comfortable to wear. I like them monochromatic, in transparent colors, with a little touch of gold foil. Hmmmm, gonna think about this some more. . .and figure out how to make the details show up better in the pictures.

Black Madonna Mystery

Another mystery. Descendant of Pre-Christian earth mother/goddess? Daughter of the Isis tradition? Soot covered Catholic icons? Another offshoot of reading The Da Vinci Code? Oh, she's got my attention, and I can't wait to upload these photos, fix the family Sunday morning bacon and eggs, and then sneak back online to read a little more about her. She's mostly from the 13th and 14th centuries, but she garnered attention once again in the 1950's. She was in Polish, Spanish, French, and Italian cathedrals. She's in a grotto in Missouri. She's been related to the Song of Songs by the phrase "Nigra sum sed formosa", which translates to "I am black, but beautiful". She may be related to similar African-American religious art, but in an ancient loop going back to African roots. She may be another case of Christians including ancient worship symbols into their own rituals. Nigra sum sed formosa-- whatever she is, she is beautiful.

2006 - 3-bead Sets II

~A Marriage of Glass & Silver~

I learned how to metalsmith last March from a 75 year old gentleman. I never even got to finish out the first project because the power went out. I managed to finish it on my own. Here is a good example of what I love to do with sterling and glass!

More Shard Beads

I'm so excited about this set. I made these with Double Helix Kronos and handblown shards. The freshwater pearls I had on hand matched perfectly.

Jesus, Crosses, & Angels

God is God is God, at least that's my opinion, so I'm exploring the world's religions and cultures. . .and you can see those themes in my glass. Religious art of all types inspires me, probably because much of it is so ornate and detailed. If you look at enough examples, you'll also find those gems that are truly sacred art. You can feel the reverence instilled by the artist's hand, and you can feel the touch of a higher power instilling life into the art. Those gems are the ones that shine on through the ages, the ones that stand out on an entire page of googled images. I'm not sure why I'm feeling the need to explain all of this just because I've moved on to a Christian theme now. Maybe, I'd just like to explain to the woman who took her money back when she realized she was buying a Buddha. . .I respect all religions and am not excluding hers. Ahhh, tolerance and understanding, aren't we all striving to achieve it? I hope you'll enjoy looking at the sculptures, the attempts to add something of my

Melting Snow

These beads are made with pixie dust & handblown shards which create the illusion of melting snow. The round beads are rolled in crystal frit which gives the illusion of snowballs.

Supernova Galaxy

My first experimentation with Supernova glass. I incorporated silver, clear stringer and my own star murrine into the bead. I really like the way the purple came out as the base with the blue "galaxy" around the center. It reminds me of looking up into a clear, dark night sky when you can see the milky way.
