10 more days!

In 10 days I will be packing up the Honda and hitting the road.  Milwaukee Or Bust! Full of nervous anticipation but also sheer joy and excitement to meet some super creative folks, many of whom I have only met online. Some of the work I'll be bringing with me are focal beads, lots & lots of bead sets, some cool new heart pendants and spiral discs in every imaginable color. Seriously, if I make another disc bead I'm gonna lose my mind. On the positive side, production work makes me a better beadmaker, at least that's what I keep telling myself.
 So if your heading to Bead & Button stop by Booth 1236 and say "Hi"!

Hope to see you there.

Studio Happenings

The studio aka... disaster area is getting a good cleaning. Today is day 3 and hopefully the final day as I want to get back to melting glass soon. In the meantime I have listed a lot of new work this week in my Etsy shop. Some very cool chunky discs that I did in clear and then added the color band just in the middle and then acid etched for a soft matte (kind of beach glass) look! A few sets of spree shaped beads in some fun colors and handmixed streaky cane too. Hope everyone has a great week. I know I will(the kiddos are back in school!)
 Peace & Love,
Black on clear Chunky Discs
Pea Green on clear Chunky Discs

Flame on!

So last week I spent 2 hours cleaning up my studio that looked like an earthquake had hit it.  It is not 100% but it was enough to inspire me to get down there, fire up the torch and melt some glass. So, there are lots of new things listed in my Etsy shop. More will be coming soon as well.
  Hopefully in my next post I will be able to showcase some work that I have been doing with some new enameled murrini that I purchased from Lori & Kim on Etsy.

Getting back into the swing of things...

I have seriously neglected my blog page. Right now I am busy creating stock for The Gathering in Louisville in July and still keeping my Etsy shop new and exciting. If you'de like to keep up to date on when new beads are added, just "follow me" and you should receive emails when I post new stuff. ~ Peace ~

Silver lined Pandora Beads (and a copper one too!)...

I've been busy making and coring Pandora-Style slider beads. These are so much fun to make. I think my favorite so far is the turquoise and purple one! Check 'em out in my Etsy shop here... FlameCrazy's Etsy Shop
