A new little bead

I was asked a few weeks ago if I could make a necklace for a friend. She was looking for a motorcycle feel (we do live in Milwaukee, home of Harley Davidson).

She really likes my necklaces that are beaded ropes with lampwork focal beads. So she asked if I could work on making a flame bead.

And of course my brother had to add that it would look really cool if the flames were 3D. Thanks bro.

So not only had I never even tried to attempt flames on a bead, I now had to make them all 3D. Great.

So this is what I came up with. I'm so proud of it. I have never done anything like this, but it turned out so good. I'm so excited to show her.

Now I just have to clean it (yup that's bead release you see). I'm going to make another one for her necklace, but I am just so happy with this one, I had to share.

That's smashing! Isn't a challenge just what you need to send you off in new directions? Please make more.

Really cool or should I say "hot!!" It's an amazing bead! Now, aren't you glad your brother pushed you about the 3D part?

I would totally wear that bead as a focal in a necklace or bracelet. Great job -- especially for your first try!

Thank you all for you nice comments. I'm pretty happy with this one, hopefully I'll be able to reproduce it. :D
