Reminiscent of Confections ...

At this time of year we welcome the change in palette ... from the dark colors of winter to the light colors of spring.  These enamel beads also remind me of those melt-in-your-mouth non-pareils.  Who could forget them!


Also included in these listings are five pieces of sea glass that I collected from the shores of the Chesapeake Bay where the Maryland settlers landed in 1634.  It takes at least 30 years before glass acquires the frosted appearance and smooth edges characteristic of sea glass.  You can drill a hole through the bead glass with a diamond drill bit or wire wrap them.  I hope you enjoy these listings.

Gorgeous!

I still haven't braved beads with my "Corvette" torch, but I did do some flat copper -- hope to show you soon!

Well, I hit the spot at least with the non-pareils. Just kidding. Thanks everybody. I think it was Molly Alexander who thought I should order Lichen enamel, even though she hadn't used it yet. Hey Molly, "Thanks!" Love the color too!
