Okay, so this isn't the bead that I made of the adorable dog, but Euphonia the Alien Diva demanded that she get a shot in the limelight. Sometimes you look at crazy beads and wonder, how the heck did the artist come up with that? Well this one was easy. We were chatting on our Etsy Glass Artists forum, ( check out ... www.etsyglass.com), and Lis posted a photo of a frog bead that her bf made. It had the raised eyes. Then I was looking through an old children's book and I saw a picture of an alien with lots of arms that had a big mouth and used it like a toy box. Two forms of inspiration and the bead doesn't look like either, but they were the basis of this bead. Actually, I really love this one. It's really cute in person.
Thanks for stopping by. I've got a busy weekend ahead. When my son comes home from college for a visit, I know there will be a lot of friends visiting, lots of music and a lot of fun. I can't wait.
