Bead Table Wednesday 5-18-11

It's  Bead Table  Wednesday.  I am showing my recent firing of stoneware and porcelain beads with some new glaze colors.  I am very excited about how black the black beads turned out.  And that I only had to fire them one time at cone5 to get this fabulous color.  I can't wait to make them into a necklace along with some other black beads I made from a different clay body and stain.



To follow up on last week's BTW, I have put in the above photo.  I want to thank all of you for your encouraging comments about my beads which in the end I really liked so much that I finished the necklace I had started.  I find this BTW so inspiring and motivating.  I hope you will click on my BTW button on the sidebar and get over and look at all the other inspiring bead tables.  Its always a great experience.
