My friend Brenda makes amazing fused-glass beads. Usually they end up as beautiful necklaces. The process is all magic to me, but I know it involves fire and rods of glass and lots of fiddly details. Anyway, she presented me with these three birdbee beads! She was experimenting, trying to figure out the best process, so they are all quite different. She had not seen any of the colour images of birdbee, so she just guessed what colours to use. I think these are just fabulous! Brenda told me she has worked out a way to make one with legs too! I was thrilled to get these so I thought it would make a fun post during birdbee’s vacation! Thanks, Brenda!

birdbee will see you in september.

Hello birdbeeings!

Summer in my part of the world is too short and too busy! So as of today birdbee is officially on vacation until September. There will, however, be a few new posts over the next month and a half. The easiest way to make sure you don’t miss anything is to subscribe (see the subscribe button at the bottom of the sidebar), or join the birdbee Facebook group.

If you are new to the birdbee blog, please check out the archives. There are now fifty birdbee drawings just waiting for your comments and ratings.

I will be writing and sketching during the summer break so that I will have fresh material to work with in the fall.

Have a great summer, everyone!

– Ed & birdbee
