Brass Tornado

Ok I've made many of these tornado beads, but never one in gold wire.  Technically its not gold, its brass colored Artistic Wire, but for all intents and purposes it does the trick and is non-tranish wire.  I didn't think I would like it because I've never seen one done, but need I say its awesome!  With pieces of coil and Fire Opal Swarovski at ever turn how could it not be.  There are also some pale amber czech beads in there too.  Lots of kinks and twists and turns.  So much to look at you just want to keep spinning it.  All beads are 4mm.  This would fit a pandora or troll bracelet of your choice.

Raku Lentil Earrings for SALE ON ETSY

Wow its been a while since I posted.  Dang!  I made these Monday night and I was totally surprised.  I bought a new lentil press from bake in February and finally got around to using it.  These lentils are black with raku spots at random front and back.  The raku takes on a "oil on water" appearance creating quite a burst of colors once it is melted in.  In the picture they look large but really they are only about the sz of a nickel. Enjoy and thank you for visiting The Blue Flame.
