Did some rooting around earlier in the week looking for some lampwork beads, but discovered some of the amazing creations on Emma Ralph's website. (spooky given they're mine & my OH's names!). She does beautiful lampwork but also some lovely polymer clay beads. So I've decided I'm going to try and make some of my own.
After using Fimo a bit as a kid, I'm hoping to make more grown up beads with a touch of sparkle rather than the garish colours and lopsided ovals that we managed when younger. We'll see tomorrow when I open up the goodies I bought and start experimenting. It's a nice cheap way to try things...if they aren't great I can always make my god-daughter some nice bracelets, if they turn out well it's a bonus and I've got new crafting to continue with. I shall make sure I post some of the pictures up when I sort out my photobucket albums.
