Wow! What an artist. I love the bead on Hollow Lentil Pendant featured at the Malodora store. It's so intense.

This one is really tough! But i found these:

and I wish I could afford them!


Dana December 4, 2008 at 1:35 PM  

My head is gonna explode. Seriously. Ka-pow. And then ya'll better have good insurance...cuz my family won't be able to function without me. ;) One bead, as if! But since I'm a flameworking pyromaniac myself, I have to pick a fabulously funky focal by AKDlampwork! I love all of them, but "Wild Rose Garden" (item #17495894) is just so intriguing...I think I could look at it forever!

I can't get over the gorgeous range of color and textures in this pendant. Each of dumauvobleu's art beads is unique and utterly breath-taking.

One Bead? You gotta be kidding. There are so, so, so many. However, the one I could build a small home for is "Tribal" by AKDlampwork. It is just luscious and is begging me for a home.
