Waiting for the Buffer

This is how I spent my Sunday.  It's funny, you think "Oh, I'll just make a couple of new canes" and the next thing you know, you've made twenty.  I think we can see spring coming through in these new beads.  I've been doing a lot of translucent mixing and layering in search of that glassy look and lots of depth.  These beads were mostly experimental and I tend to make these long beads when I'm doing that.  I really do need to make some more cabochons as they look so good bezelled.
Last night saw me sanding and hand buffing these babies and I actually fell asleep buffing a couple of times.  They are bound for the electric buffer today and there's no chance of falling asleep with that noise!
