First Friday Winner!

The beads in this little bowl are going all the way to the UK because Angela was number 75 of 177 comments. You'll just have to trust me on the random pick because my thingy that captures a pic of the random number generator has mysteriously gone missing from my computer. Wow, you all must really like beads. I am a little overwhelmed at the number of comments on this. I wish I could send beads to all of you. But you can have another chance at another fabulous prize next month because we'll do First Friday Freebies again. Thanks everyone for stopping in. I've really enjoyed hopping around all of your blogs and meeting some new people.



Congratulations, Angela! Email me with your address and I'll get the goodies out to you.


I have been a very busy girl this week making and firing beads, copper, and bronze. And I learned a new thing. Do not load a kiln when you are tired. See those beads down there? They are all stuck together. There are several sets like this. I am trying to think of them as impromptu sculpture.


Have a great weekend everyone!

If all the holes are going in the same direction, I bet someone would snatch them up at a discount and do some really cool pieces with them.

Sculpture! I love it!
How can you be surprised that people want to win your gorgeous beads? Angela is one lucky girl!
I think that First Friday is a great idea. And you are one generous bead artist!
Enjoy the day!

Congratulations to Angela!

I agree with Winchell Clayworks...when I first read the post and looked at the photo of the "impromtu sculpture" my mind started that "Hmmmm what could I do with that?" process!

congratulations angela! what treasures you are getting! agreeing with above comments - i would buy one of your fused pieces... such an interesting design challenge! when life gives you lemons, my dear...

mairedodd said...

i really feel i need to modify what i said - these are not lemons, they are beautiful... guess i just meant they weren't what you are planning on... those opportunities you created are stunning ~

At first when I read UK, I thought, could it be, could it be, then I saw it wasn't :(

Congrates Angela, hopefully I'll get lucky another time.

I also thought the impromptu sculpture could work as a pendant.

OK I am going to give some serious thought to playing with the fused together beads. I love a little challange. Thanks, all!

Angela said...

I can't believe I have won!
I will post a picture of the beads on my blog when I receive them. I still can't believe it, I don't win anything.
Excuse me while I do a little dance!!!!

So sorry to hear some beads didn't make the cut but the "sculpture" is beautiful. Congrats to Angela!

Rosanne said...

Lucky Angela! I wanted that bowl of beads too. We all love your beads! And tha collage of three look very intriging. Happy Valentines Day to you!

Candace said...

Wow, congrats to Angela! That bowl of beads is even better than a bowl of cherries, in my opinion. How gorgeous they are, together and separately.
Wonderful stuff!

Thanks for the visit, too, and your kind words.
I'll be back!

Those beads were beautiful, maybe next time!! It's funny how some things don't turn out the way you want them to, but they still make something interesting. :)

Heh, I just got back a batch of charms from the kiln the other night and a really great pair got stuck together. I'm still trying to find a way to use them.
