My first full Rose -- Week 12 & 13

Roses that's why I went to have a lesson with Laney I really wanted to learn how to make roses. Up until now I hadn't made a full rose only buds and a half rose. 

Week 12

Orange petals with the yellow around the edge was still the way to go, as I did have few remaining from the previous time, I made lots more and this is how it turned out.

Very proud that it survived.

Week 13

My new Ombre style headpins which are two-tone and named from the hair trend at the moment with dark hair on the top part of the head graduating down the hair to a light  or blonde at the ends

Love these colours Ultramarine down to aqua tips


More weeks still to come.

My first online show

I have had my first online show on the new facebook group page called
UK Lampwork Showcase, you do have to become a member to view and buy but its easy to join, just put in a request and someone will let you join.

As it was my very first online show, with no stock, I had lots of late nights for over 2 -3 weeks before, getting my stock together. As I was so busy I have neglected my blog posting, terribly Sorry!!

The show is over now, it was on Saturday 25th April, it went well I think, I sold some of my new things including my first daffodil. Happy, happy dance!!

I have also made a few tulips with a stem on a headpin


along with my other beads, cabochons and headpins.

I am really enjoying my sculptural flower journey, all I seem to be doing is finding pictures of flowers that I can reproduce in glass. Its fab, I LOVE IT!!

I will be back soon with some 52 things posts, as I am now weeks behind with that too ......

Better get cracking then!

See you again soon
