Back to Hungary for a couple of months; hopefully I will be able to show you lots if interesting new stuff in the weeks coming; my head is full of ideas! I have a simple sterling and lampwork earring to show you now; it was made during the "green festival" project in April. There are two interesting facts about these beads; first, that they are made of broken glass bottle pieces (have I told you I love recycling :) and second, the glass beads aren't really finished...I loved the way they looked while I was making them, so instead of melting them all the way down, to get a nice smooth and round outcome, I decided to leave them "half ready" with a rougher look. I just love the way they turned out!

Yesterday Akos had a day off, so we decided it was time for another minibreak, possibly the last one before I have to go home to Hungary... This time we wanted to go to Salcey forest, a lovely green paradise just next to Northampton. The whole idea was born when I picked up one of the free tourist brochures at the local library and saw a picture of the so called "tree top way"...I was immediately hooked. The wooden pathway, built about 15 meters high, was even more impressive in real; here is one of my favourite pictures taken there.

I made this necklace for an Africa-themed set some time ago; the drop shaped black focal bead with a white stringer work was inspired by tribal masks. To make the piece more colorful, I used some of my red marble-like, swirly spacers that I melted from recycled sheet glass. The chain and all the metal components are sterling silver.

Some of you might remember a couple of odd looking beads I showed you a while ago...I even run a little quiz to see if anyone could guess what they were meant to be. Well, better later than never, here is the bracelet I created using those olive shaped lampwork beads, combined with a couple of aqua coloured cubes. Crazy, ehh :) What do you think?
