New beads

Had an opportunity to get in some practice in the glass studio this weekend and made these beads. The largest one that I liked best cracked during the annealing process and was not photographed.
All beads shown measure from 1/2" to 1" in length and 1/2" to 3/4" in width.

One of my favorite artists, Jeri Aaron has tagged me. Check out her art at:

I have to tell 4 (more) quirky things about my self:
1 - Collecting rocks has always been one of my favorite pastimes.
2 - Kayaking is my newest recreational interest.
3 - I enjoy Pandora radio, that's not really quirky but I am outrageously crazy about all kinds of music.
4 - Talking endlessly about cooking and trying new recipes is way fun!

Now I will tag 4 bloggers whose art I admire and enjoy. Please check out their work. I will let them know they have been tagged and they can share some of their favorite art blogs.
