I made these today and yesterday.  I love how they came out and am definitely going to experiment with them more.  They look really nice on, and the colors are so amazing, especially in the sun.  It's hard to capture on camera!  The brown ones remind me of chocolate... or a giraffe!  Oh, and yes, they're glazed.  (If you were wondering?)  Wink  I'd say they're no doubt the prettiest things I've made.  (Can you tell I'm proud of them?)

Those are awesome!!  I'd buy them.  What's the name of the technique?  I really like it.
PS-we have the same name!!

Thanks so much!  It's an Ancient Middle Eastern bead folding technique.  (Originally used with glass beads of course.)

Hi rhodora,

I see my website mentioned  Grin, but couldn't see any of your photos!! ... the blank frames where they should have been have only the dreaded X in the upper corner.  Are the photos coming back?? or is no one else having the same problem seeing them? 
(and were they the "Folded Log Ring" beads?)
