Well, here she is...Miss Tanzania, made from a recycled beer bottle. All dressed up and ready to party! I played around with etching a bit. This one is etched using a chemical that I bought for the process awhile ago. I etched some of the smaller, accent beads with baking soda, while they were still in the flame and I think that I like that look better, as they look more "aged". Interestingly, all the beads that I made yesterday were from an amber colored beer bottle. The ones etched with baking soda look almost blue and this one looks black. You'll see the others when I complete a necklace with them...hopefully in the next week or so. She stands 2 inches tall and has a shallow crack in her forehead, but I think that adds to the antique look. Hopefully the next one will have boobs. What do you think?
