Some more beads;-)

These are some more beads I made last night. Whilst I was at the BIG bead show I also purchased a book form Tuffnell glass and in it was a tutorial of this little dog that you can see on the centre lentil bead. so I had a go, not the best in the world but I like it. He's quite cute.
So thank you to Claudia Trimbur Pagel for a wonderful tutorial and the book is called Glass bead trip which can be purchased at Tuffnell glass, heres a link:

It is full of tips and tricks, I love it;-)

These are the 12 projects for FAM 2012

These are all 12 of my projects I did for the four a month challenge over on flickr.
I can honestly say I have enjoyed every single
 minute of this challenge.

So here is a look at all 12 together.
I hope you enjoy seeing them as much as I did making them :-)

Can't believe I came 2nd in two categories.

Well you can imagine my surprise when I was called twice at the British bead awards.
I came 2nd in the Metal clay category, the first place winners piece was an absolute work of art and will be published in Bead Magazine as will mine, I also came 2nd in the polymer clay category.
 Just look at all my goodies ;-)

Then I went on to teach a beginners metal clay class which went down a storm and all of my students were complete beginners and most of them had kits already bought for them but were terrified to use them.
The feedback from the class was great and every single one of them left with the confidence to use their kits.

The big treat for me was walking around a seeing the vast amounts of beads OMG bead heaven.
But my money was spent with Tuffnell glass and look at all my new glass NAUGHTY but nice ;-)
