This set is called Send in the Clowns.  It is completely handmade by me.  If you've seen my other beads, you'll know that this is out of the ordinary for me - totally out of the box!

Next is one of my sculptured roses - this is more like what I normally do and what I am known for.




both of these are up for auction on the Auction Boutique (something else you might want to check out - it's a new site where you can get some great deals on lampwork beads, marbles, almost anything lampworked and lampwork designer jewelry also).   I didn't see that I coldn't post a link to show you all this new site - so check out the site at TheAnnealerMagazine .com then click on Auction boutiques. 

Have a great day!

Thanks for the kind words!  Yes, I make these beads.  The clown is the first one (after making 5 heads - that is) that turned out good.  Sculpting molten glass on such a small area is not an easy task!  lol   The roses I can whip out - I've been making them for quite some time and even have a video on the market showing others how to make them.    If you are a jewelry designer- lampwork beads are some of the best beads you can use since each one is a wearable piece of art!  That's actually how I got started making them, I wanted unique beads for my jewelry designs - sometimes I couldn't find what I wanted, so I opted to start making them.  Well, my jewelry designing days are all but gone - the flame and molten glass have taken over my life!  Smiley  You can see more of my beads on my gallery page on my site - perazabeads.com and the clown and a rose is up for auction on The Annealer Magazine.com Auction Boutique.  Thanks again!
