Bead Peeps Swap 'n Hop Reveal

I was lucky to be partnered with Marybeth Rich who is "Forest of Jewels" online and on blogspot.  She sent me such a super fantastic array of materials (see remaining ones below) that I had a hard time deciding what to do.  The top is the necklace I made.  I added some bits of "me" to her lovely copper clasp and turquoise and natural stones.  The copper pieces I found when visiting AZ and had been waiting for a chance to use them.  I already had some of my lampwork "eggs" and the shell bead, which I think tied it together.  Above the shell it looks like a chunk of wood, but is some of the polymer clay stash, which Marybeth sent.  See below for my cute bracelet that I made with more of it.

These are my extra beads that I still haven't used.  (I use white paper plates to see the beads better- no 20/20 eyes anymore!) See how amazingly generous she was?  And what made each packet seem like a special gift was that she packaged them in her handmade paper envelopes.  
And here is the wire bangle I made from her polymer clay pieces. 
I love the sparkle and the opaque textures mixing together.  I kept the pink cord on the focal piece, because I like the mix of the hard beads with the soft cotton.  If I had more, I would have added it between some of the bead sections.  I left the largest design piece on the end.  I like it like a big dangle, instead of in the middle. And of course, I had to add a touch of "me" in it too.  Just the simple purple lampwork beads which blended in well.  

Here is the list of the other Swap Hop Members.  I swiped it from Marybeth's page. (shhh, don't tell) Please visit Marybeth next, if you haven't been to see her already.  I linked her name with her blog to make it easy for you.

Acting Like a Squirrel


I fell in love with this photo by Vadim Trunov.  I have had a long love/hate relationship with the critters.  My head says they are pests, by the many times, we've had to evict them from our attic, or had to redo roofing from their voracious gnawing.  And of course, coming back from a trip and finding our outdoor furniture torn apart...apparently the pillow stuffing would be nice and soft in their nests. But, I still think they are cute.  Especially from a distance.

Free Shamrock Glass Bead Tutorial by Marcy Lamberson ~ Studio Marcy


Lampwork Glass Shamrock Quick Mini Tutorial
Nothing like a freebie, is there?


Tools   
a. 1 rod of transparent green glass
b. parallel mashers (any mashers are fine)
c. glass shears 
d. Stump Shaper - other tools will work as well


Step 1.  Base Bead
Using your transparent green glass, make a base bead that is shaped  kind of like a fat football.


Step 2.  

Gently mash your base bead to flatten it into a thick oval.
Then using your glass shears, make your first cut as pictured above.
I am using a 1/16th mandrel and you can see that I am careful to snip near the mandrel, but not close enough to jeopardize breaking bead release.


Step 3.

Snip the rest of the cuts as pictured for a total of 4 cuts.  You can see you have made the basic shape of the shamrock already.  Please keep the base warm, but not hot.  If you accidentally warm it too much, then gently flatten with your mashers to return to the shape you need.


Step 4.

Now make mini snips on each of the horizontal petals.  Only go in about a third of the way.  Two snips total with your glass shears.


Step 5.

Use your flame (keep the heat gentle) to warm the top petal that is divided by the mandrel.  I do a combination of heating one side and holding the mandrel on an angle upside down to slightly droop the glass to help form the rounded section, and also using my brass Stump Shaper to gently indent the glass close to the mandrel.  It's almost like making a mini heart.  If you are having problems, then feel free to add a dot or two of glass on the outside edges away from the mandrel, to give it more definition.  Do both sides.



Step 6.

I use my brass Stump Shaper to gently push in the glass at the bottom to form more of a stem.  Both the non sticking brass and the wedge of that tool make it easy to get in there and gently press toward the mandrel to make it look more stem-like.  Voila, you are done.  Pretty easy, isn't it?
~

And perhaps you aren't into shamrocks, but this easy technique would be great for flowers as well.  I could see them with frit, stringers and even and extra raised dot in the center with a cool murrine, or so many other ways.

Hope you enjoyed this easy tutorial.  I have decided that I will be making more of these for your enjoyment.  Please stop by and see me on my FB business page or my StudioMarcy etsy shop

Still Here...So a little eye candy

I know, I've been gone a long time.  But perhaps it's time to come back and bring a little life into this blog.  I won't be posting daily, but will try for once a week.

What have I been up to?  Well, honestly, a lot.  I just got back from Austin and teaching two classes at Blue Moon Glassworks.  One was for non torch students.  So mosaic artists and fusers learn how to use the torch, and how to mix color rods, pull stringers and filetti for micro mosaics, and make simple murrine.  It's a great class.

The second class was sculptural glass and we made adorable figures to put in snow globes and then the class learned how to put them together for a professional presentation.  I'll show a photo in a future post.  So for now, this is it.

If you want to keep up with me more often, follow me on Facebook/StudioMarcy.  Take care and see you soon.

Bead Soup Blog Hop Cha Cha Cha

It's time for Lori's Annual Bead Soup Blog Hop and I have to say, thank you, thank you for all you do, Lori.  It's a lot of work.

This year, I was paired with Kim Williams.  Here is her blog, which is pretty cool.  Kim works with resin and does some interesting things with it.  She loves the vintage and wait til I tell you what the pendant is made from.

Kim used resin with a copy of an old love letter between her grandparents while they were courting.  How sweet is that?  It is in the focal of the necklace.  She also sent a copy and you can tell what a nice marriage it must have turned out to be.  She sent me a lot of beautiful various shades of green vintage beads.  I know some are fancy stones, (but I am not good at telling you what they are, just that they are pretty)

As Kim is to vintage and romantic, I am to modern and funky.  I wanted a little me in the necklace so I added some clear drops that I made from Russian glass.  I wanted Kim's special focal to be the star, but I wanted to add a touch of modern to it.

Here is the rest of the list of the blog hoppers. If you love jewelry, this is a fun place to see what is going on.  Take your time and visit when you can.  These posts aren't going anywhere.  Missed you, my readers. I'll be back sooner than later.  I have a big show this weekend, then a trip and then another trip, so I'm kind of up to my eyeballs in work right now.  I'm pretty lucky- teaching, making and selling glass.  Can't get much better than that.  xoxo Marcy
