Experimenting with Molds

Turquoise flower beads by Roberta Warshaw

These are some new beads I made using my inverted designs. I actually like the way they look better than the original impressed stampings. they have so much more depth this way. They feel much more like a small painting to me. I am happy with the results and look forward to making more unique molds in this way.

Oh, and I have been invited to be a guest blogger on the "Love My Art Jewelry" blog. I have been following this blog for quite some time and enjoy looking at the work of their artists, many of whom work in ceramic bead making. I have to think a bit about what I want to write about since we are allowed to decide that for ourselves.

I'll let you know when it is posted. Due sometime in April.

I love your impressed stampings, and I also love the work you've been doing with molds! It adds a whole new dimension to your work.

Congratulations on being a guest blogger! I look forward to reading what you write. Seems like a wonderful community there. :)

These are quite nice...Look very Antiquey (is that a word!). Your work is wonderful and always so interesting to see what you've come up with next!

These look really nice, Roberta. I just love a bead with a raised pattern! Congratulations of being asked to be a guest blogger! I can't wait to see what you write about. I check the LMAJ blog pretty regularly. The artists are really interesting and have a lot to you!

Oh these are beautiful! Can you do one of the beads that I ordered like this? Just one flower or so? What say?
