circle of hope

so, this year i decided to participate in Fire Mountain Gems circle of hope necklace project.

i submitted two beads to be incorporated into the necklace, and then be auctioned off with all proceeds benefiting breast cancer research. i think this is a great project and a great cause. it also gets me some publicity since my name and website will be published along with pictures of the complete necklace on their website and in the 2008-2009 catalog!

here are my two beads:

this one was made with raku frit over silver purple glass. it was then encased in clear, pressed and the dots added:

this one is also made with raku frit as well as green aventurine chips over green glass. it was then encased in clear.

i am really happy with how they both turned out. keep an eye out for them if you get the Fire Mountain Gems catalog.
