Good Bead Day





Some days are better than others for making beads. Wednesday was a Good Bead Day, or GBD, as in, "All I need is a GBD and I will stop being a beezee." Yes, we speak in code here.

Since I am testing frit for 2 Toucans Treetop Creations I have *finally* been bitten by the frit bead bug. Oooh, frit is a lovely thing. I had no idea. Don't get me wrong, I loved iris orange (AKA raku) frit but it didn't really fit in with my regular bead style all that much. And it was a lot of work getting it to do anything besides baby poop tan. It definitely had it's place in my beadmaking palette but it wasn't the first thing I reached for every session (like...say...pink) LOL!

Well, I am in love with frit now.
