New Fibulas

I made these for a customer and was very pleased with the result. So was she, yay! :)
These have an ekstra bead, compared to the ones I have made before. I always loved an uneven number more than an even number, but these look well ballanced, so I am happy.

New Fibulas

Next year I will raise my price on these, but for the rest of this year I will take orders at the same low price(350Dkr/$70).

A Goddess Request

Some days ago I had a request, to see if I could make a goddess bead that would fit the Danish charm/bracelet series(Troll & Pandora). An excellent challenge since I have just cored my first beads.
These are my first attempts, front and back:

As bracelet beads go, these are quite large, around 2cm long, but I have tried to keep the diameter fairly slim. Since these are for a bracelet they do not need to be perfectly ballanced, which is nice for these front-heavy ladies.
I am not sure these two can be cored, so I will work on getting the rim of the holes even, and also on getting them a little bit smaller.

Now to see if I can make goddesses with the hole going horizontally ...

Støt Brysterne! (Support the Boobs!)

Støt min indsamling hos Kræftens Bekæmpelse og vær med i lodtrækningen om en skøn halskæde i 24 karat guld doublé. Vedhænget (ca. 2,5 cm højt) er en af mine egne glasperler og hele herligheden kan ses på billederne herunder i posten. Hvis du ikke er til pink (eller nøgne damer) finder vi ud af et alternativ :)

Indsamlingen løber til d. 16 nov, og du får et lod i hatten for hver 25,- du bidrager med. Husk at kontakte mig med din mailadresse når du har givet et bidrag, sådan at jeg kan få fat i dig hvis du vinder. Læg en besked her i bloggen eller send mig en mail på profusionartglass @

Held og lykke!

'Support the Boobs' is the name of the campaign the Danish breastcancer research is running.
This necklace is the prize I am offering if you donate through my collection at their site.
It is all in Danish, but they take all kinds of cards, so I don't think it should be a problem for foreigners to donate too. Just remember to use the green button in the center of the page, and that 50Dkr equals app. 10US$. Each 25Dkr you donate will get your name into the drawing once.

The necklace is in 24 carat goldfill, sporting one of my glass ladies in pink. This can be exchanged into something else if you win and you really don't like pink (or naked ladies).
The campaign runs until nov. 16'th, and don't forget to let me know your email address, here or by mail to profusionartglass @, so I can contact you if you win.

Good luck!

I did it!

Finally, I did it. And it was so easy too.

Yesterday, I sorted all my beads with 5mm holes into those that fit the Sterling tube I've got and those that doesn't.
I changed the peg on my untill now unused Impress Beadliner and tried for the very first time my tiny tubecutter, my de-buring tool and my somewhat unprecise calliper.
I read the instructions and proceeded to line my first bead. It was easy! I don't know why I have to wait so long to try a new thing, I do that most of the times I try new things by myself when it really isn't all that difficult. I am working on that :)

Anyway - here are my 3 first cored beads. Now all I need is a Dremel/-like tool to polish up the inside of the tube, that hid a white surface I hadn't noticed before. And some more tube of course :)
