Floral Vase Beads
vases and flowers go together, right?

I mostly make round, or more realistically slightly flattened round (disk-shape) beads. My second most favorite shape appears to be the vase.

In which I use a variety of techniques to make some if not actively ugly, then at least frustrating beads. Or, put another way, making large beads with high silver content without a working kiln is probably Not a Good Idea. Also, the Fugly index page. 30mar2012
