[caption id="attachment_547" align="aligncenter" width="300"]Freshly turned beads Freshly turned beads[/caption] In between bouts with the Minion Richard's been making some beads. The latest are brass and bronze. While I took pictures of the process he was giving me instructions on how to make them. It seems I will be doing these in the not too distant future. I'm beginning to think I should stop going into his shop.

  • Any copper in the pipeline??

  • All beads have sold. Thanks for the interest, though.

  • Bronze middle left one I would like.

  • That one has sold, the two bronze still available are the middle left and the bottom right. Brass available are the top two and the left bottom. If you email me at I can handle it easier. Thanks for your interest in Richard’s work.

  • I’ll take the bronze one top right if available. If I’m going bout buying one wrong someone clue me in.
