I know that some members have been lucky enough to attend bead-making events put on by TB or their distributors. I've seen it done at the UK Convention last year, but haven't got one myself.

I'd be really interested in seeing what glass you chose, and why Very Happy . Pretty please! Very Happy

I like them both too - lovely beads!! How funny you got a caterpillar instead of an armadillo!! I hope you got your GLA eventually.

You SIL's is really unusual - spiral with buds?

Thanks so much for sharing Very Happy

They are both fabulous!
(but still sorry, that it is not, what you'd hoped for, wildthing)

Here in Germany the beadmaker is not allowed to do any special beads at the events, but only six different production beads (Dillos, flowers and stripes).

Yes, that's the rule in the UK now too, but the first event here (which was the one at Steffans) the lady would make anything, (if she understood what you wanted Laughing ) she was the most amazingly talented lampworker, I can't remember her name now, but apparently she works directly under Lise.

I feel bad for not liking it, as I know I was so lucky to have one made, I did try, but I don't like budded beads and I have never liked the anniversary cat. It doesn't even live in my bead box, it is in my 'one day' swaps or sales bag. That said I haven't managed to part with it yet, mainly as it is a reminder or a very special day with my Mum and Sister in Law.

Wildthing, I love both yours and your sister-in-laws beads! I would love to attend an event where I could have my own bead made, but would be very disappointed to be limited to production beads. Stripes? Really? Rolling Eyes

Wildthing your beads are great, maybe the Danish words for "caterpillar" and "armadillo" are similar? Laughing I am impressed that you were able to get them both to stand up like that for the photo shoot.

You're keeping it for the right reason. Poor thing. I think of Cinderella or the Ugly Duckling. It's such a beautiful caterpiller. Maybe you could make it a butterfly bracelet. Smile

Sorry, I missed your reply earlier, I wasn't really with it (really shouldn't be messing about on here and trying to organize the school run at the same time Embarassed )

No, I have never found a GLA, after many, many attempts I am starting to think it's just not meant to be.

My SIL asked for a light blue braid (61166) but with light purple instead of the light green and with purple buds - see way more complicated, but came out exactly as she asked Laughing

It was funny when the bead maker was making mine, I was thinking 'That doesn't look like any armadillo I've ever seen, maybe it will look different when it cools?' Then she started adding the buds...... It was amazing to watch though, very complex.

Does no-one else have anything for show and tell? Smile

Here is my teal dillo I had made at my LD last November. Smile Turned out to be more turquoise, but it's lovely and fat. Very Happy

I love your cat too Wildthing.
