The Memory is going..... going.....gone - thank goodness for other artists

I cant tell you how many classes or techniques I've taken over the years and yet a simple  task such as making murrini  was a challenge  -  but thank goodness for the internet - to reboot the brain

I have my optic molds, mandrels etc..  but I wanted to make some really nice ones and murrini is not something I took to task in the past -or spent much time on so why would I not forget the basics -  but there are so many beautiflul beads using them

-  Donna Millard is one of my favourites -

 her colour combinations and the use of the murrini is so beautiful
Sometimes I feel colour chanllenged and I just visit her blog  and come out all happy and wanting to make beads  - visit her Etsy store for more of an  eyefull -   https://www.etsy.com/shop/DonnaMillard   she has a great eye for colour combos and her murrini is to die for  - of course the beads made with the murrini are fantastic and to die for too.   I may break down and go shopping tonight for some murrini and save myself the trouble
