Hi Jelveh:
I am sorry it is so cold there! I know it feels even colder when you are not used to it. Maybe I should send some of my 80 degree weather your way.
There are so many sets that you have made in the past that I love! So it is very hard for me to choose just one. Here is one that I love for spring.
Well, I tried to paste a picture here but it didn't work. It is #SP 502 in your daily specials archives.
I will think good, WARM thoughts for you!

Wow... what wonderful beads you have made. When looking at the very first page of your sold beads, the Lucite Green Amber Glow's immediatly caught my eye. I looked at so many of your others, and saw so many I liked, but those first one's that grabbed my attention are my favorite. For now anyway! :)
Keep up the wonderful work!
ps... surprised your already thinking about spring. We have a couple inches of snow here in Ohio!

Hey Nancy, thanks for the kind words...I am thinking spring, since well its too late to be making beads for fall anymore & its too cold...guess flower beads are good all the time...
we had snow here in oxford, but it did not stick around, it was kind of wet, came and went...the ground gets forzen over night...
the only time I was in Ohio, it was the middle of summer, and it was hot and sticky...
thanks for the comment...interesting that both you and ginny picked my frosted etched beads in 2 different colors, but etched all the same, I should look in to making more...
Jelveh
peace

hi jelveh :D we're having cold rain here in south-central indiana, i suspect it will turn into ice tonight.
i just fell in love with your second 'rose pink garden' set from your etzy shop. they are soooooo luscious! it feels like they have a deeply romantic story to tell. http://www.etsy.com/view_transaction.php?transaction_id=11323836

This Spring Valley Landscape bead came out really nice, if I say so myself….I love how the raku frit on the beads makes for a wild flower patch in the spring the valley of the faraway mountains…the valley itself is a dark pastel green, a rich apple green with darker streaks of green through out…this bead also has a bubble eye on each side…you can never have too much

This is my favorite!

Hi Jelveh,

I like the Jelveh Classics in any color. Bit chunky rounds with wonderful decorations. Sue

Hi Jelveh,
Wow! Tall order. I was all set to find the set of "Lunar Mist" that I had purchased some time ago as I just loved it. Then so many others caught my eye that I couldn't decide. Then one caught my eye...My Memory of Turkey..love it. (sold on July 3 on Etsy). You make GREAT beads!!
