Beads at Sunset

A few pictures of the past week's beads, taken just as the sun was going down. Lovely light, soft and pearly.

Viking beads.
I particularly like the crusty olive green one. The ivory ones remind me of ancient game pieces.
Fat juicy pods, long skinny pods.
Hello, colours!

This one broke when I was cleaning it, almost perfectly in half. This is a thermal crack, which means I let it get too cold before I put it into the kiln. I was probably admiring it and calling myself a genius. Ha. It's etched and still pretty cool, it looks like a spider sucked all the juice out of it.
The core was purple dichroic glass.
