When shards behave

I like shards. Here's one shard bead that behaved really well, look at all those gorgeous colours popping out. 4 views of the same bead.

Looking good

Well someone else has been very clever at making my beads look very good.

Four in one

One bead all the way around.

No kiln, but there's still an oven

So, no bead making recently as my kiln refuses to work, and I am waiting for a replacement part. So what do you do instead?
Having a surplus of milk, and not wanting to waste it, I decided to make something new, never before attempted by little ole me. A creme caramel.
Looking in the oven, is looked like to might have gone wrong. So I tentatively tuned it out into a bowl in case it collapsed into a custardy mess. So I was overjoyed with the way it turned out. It looks like a proper creme caramel

Simple things please simple minds. :-) Oh, and it tastes ok too.
