4th Woman in History Series Bracelet

Margaret Brown is widely known as "The Unsinkable Molly Brown," a woman famous for surviving the sinking of the Titanic. She was also an actress, an activist and was a devoted philanthropist. She was involved with the women's suffrage movement, was one of the founders of the Denver Woman's Club which assisted women and children and also worked to begin one of the first juvenile courts in the country. Shortly after she attempted to gain a seat in Congress, even before women received the right to vote. Made with my own Lampwork, sterling silver, swarvoski pearls and crystals.

Shells, Shells, Shells

Over the last month or so, members of the BHV have been sharing fish tanks, fishies and goodies used to decorate. I got on a bit of a kick with these shells...lol I used Boro glass on the majority of them, except the 2 pink ones, they are made with soft glass. They are sooooo much fun!

Introducing.......




This is Luigi. I recently taken a freeform boro class, was playing on the torch a bit last night..started out with a marble and added a bit too much glass and came up with this little guy. Well he isn't all that little...lol about 2" or so long and almost as tall. Hope you all like him as much as I do, for my first fish, I think I did pretty good.

No. 3 in Women in History Series....






Every- one knows the story of The Queen of Sheba, but just in case here is a little info: Sheba was a biblical character who also figures in Islamic tradition—where she is named Bilqis—and in Ethiopian legend, where, as Makeda, wife of King Soloman, she is credited with founding the first royal line of the Kingdom of Sheba in southwest Arabia.


This was made using some stunning lampwork that I received just yesterday in a ROAB (Random act of beadiness) from a member of the BHV. Every few months one of these are hosted by our fabulous Heather, the members partners are kept secret until everyone who signed up receives there goodies! It is so much fun!!


Bracelet is topped off with swarvoski pearls and lots of sterling silver.
