I found some more wooden bead shapes at Ben Franklin, so had to try them out. The little sparkles are from adding a little glitter to the sealer I use to keep the colors vibrant before adding the resin.

The earrings title "Mary's Day" I made as a wedding gift to my friend Mary, She lost her husband a few years back, and was fortunate enough to find love a second time. She just married Nacho, a widower who lost his wife about the same time. I am so happy that two great people found each other.

I then wondered if I could put designs on the beads like I did the dominoes. I inked up a texture sheet and rolled the beads on it. I found I need to have a very steady hand ... was doing alright till I got to the very end, when I started to shake a bit. Still, they don't look that bad.
I currently have 12 more pairs of tiles curing. In a few more days they will be ready to have their holes covered and made into earrings. What I am going to do with them, I have no idea. Maybe I should open an on-line shop. Now that the new computer system is in a work and I am getting used to the changes, work should become less stressful (cross fingers).
