To celebrate her birthday, she dipped into the results of her latest exploration, and sent each challenge participant one of the fused glass cabs she's made.
I got the gorgeous, delicious cobalt blue triangle. It has small flecks of clear dichroic, which give it a subtle effervescence, like little bubbles of champagne right beneath the surface. Because Therese always explores new ideas in her work, I wanted to figure out a new way to incorporate beadweaving into the bezel surrounding this cab.
Since I'd been playing around with twin beads, I explored ways to use them.
|See the little sparkles of dichroic? Lovely!|
Since I love cobalt blue so much, I figured there's never too much of a good thing -- I pulled out lots of blue beads in my stash.
The webbed beads are vintage Japanese glass. The pewter wavy discs have a sparkly finish that echoes the dichro in the cab. And pearls are classic, perfect to salute a classic lady.
Thanks for letting me celebrate your birthday Therese! Here are the other partygoers, so go grab a slice of cake and enjoy:
Bobbie yep, you're here!
