My latest set of bangles - this time using the little ''practice' lampwork beads I mentioned a while back. I'm working on several more sets using those 'practice' beads. I'm in a kind of rhythm now, crocheting these bangles. I can't seem to get the block of time I need to work on those sculptural peyote cuffs . . . soon, I promise myself.
I'm trying out some different settings on my old HP ScanJet. I like the sage background - cuts down on the rebounding shine.
I've increased the resolution as well - doubled it from 150 t0 300.
I like the effect - and I've been using Picasa 3 for the fine tuning. You know, for a free program it's very, very good.
