My Shabby chic Lampwork Beads (also with other Artisans) and its Table Wednesday!

Whats on my bead table?

Ive been working on more Lampwork that has a Shabby chic feeling! I have to say I really am liking them. I've been Inspired by Gaea who makes some lovely shabby chic beads. I have gotten some nice things in the mail too below..

Its raining! Hard rain. Thank the Lord is all I can say! What makes the weather go anyway? Maybe the Angels are in charge of those things I wonder? What a blessing we haven't had rain in forever! Here's my newest Lampwork and some other lovies..
I've named this
She's a One eyed 
Purple people Eater.
Having fun naming beads here today!

Ive named this set One fish two fish..
amply said?
Well I had to name it Something! lol

Here is a sweet Shabby bead from Gaeas Shop.
This bead was the Inspiration to this Lampwork above..

This Private Journal is handmade ceramic from Mary Harding. I cant wait to use this bead! I love this bead. When we were kids it was always so cool to have Secret things..remember that? 
All those neat things we hoarded. As adults we've all got that kind of stuff today..

These Beauty's  below are from Birgitta Lejonklou. She is also one fine talented woman as well as such a sweet person! 

I have international rates and called her the other day and I 
probably gave her a bit of a shock lol. We had the nicest talk. I am happy to call her my friend. When we go home to Scotland Id love to meet her as Sweden's not too far away. Wouldn't that be nice..I would love to go in the beginning of winter..Scotland is beautiful at that time. I imagine Sweden would be too!

 These are two Lovely beads from TesoriTrovatis Shop. 
I just love and hoard her beads. I don't want to make anything to sell with them..for shame.
(Erin said this is a pig. But I think it looks like a cow! So its a cow! lol)

Well the day is gone. Lampwork will have to wait till tomorrow. I hope you all have a great evening!

Today I am believing in Psalm 3:5


Love your shabby chic Lamp work beads I really like the "one eyed purple people eater" beads. Those are some lovely beads and pendants from the others as well.


You've got some crazy awesome stuff today! Love your purples Janet - you work magic with it really! XOXO


I love your purple people eater beads. And all your color choices.


Your new beads are so very lovely! I love that you name them too. Thanks for the little plug for me. You are too sweet. So many great bits and bobs. Must get myself back in the studio soon!
Enjoy the day!


Those beads are so pretty Janet!!
I hope they will find new homes soon
The beads I have here that You made are really gorgeous....and some I have in that bracelet on my blog..
Yupp.. we had a nice chat and You really surprised me as You did not ask for my phone number but got it from my Swedish web
thanks for showing my ceramics here too


I did a little happy dance in the post office when my package arrived! They KNOW I am crazy over there! But the beads are exquisite and sweetly packaged! Great names! I can't wait to play with them! I know a few beads over here that are dying to sit next to your beads shouting "Me first! Me first!"


You are really on a creative roll Janet, your beads are awesome! I do love bumpy beads myself!!


Thank you for all of your comments!

Therese I try to have fun naming them! Its funny how some of the beads stand out and feel so special to me. But they are work over a hot torch so they are well loved!

Patty you know how to make a Lassie feel good! Crazy awesome lol. Well I try! Ive got a ways to go still..

Thanks Leslie!

Erin How can anyone not love your focals? It would be against the rules lol!

Thank you Birgitta! I took a chance calling you but threw all caution to the wind! It was a pleasure to torch for you.

Gaea you crack me up! And make a girl feel mighty fine. Thank you. I will be sending you a wee pkt soon for being my 1st ever sale! I was in such a hurry that day shipping.

Sharon thank you!

You are so never going to believe this but both of these sets went straight to my heart!
Purple People eater was my mom's favorite fun song and she even had a stuffed one that played the song (both Shelby and now Derek have loved it!) And One Fish Two Fish is the story I have read to both of by babes when they were just starting to want to be read to and we also have a Blue Fish stuffy. Thank you so much for touching my heart like this!


Kristen Bless your sweet heart! Your comment made my day!! Aww your comment was touching too! Thank you ox
