Gotta make the Beads!!!!

Today is one of those days where I woke up and felt the overwhelming need to create!
Some days I just have to and I always listen to that inner voice because you never know when the muse with visit again. So, stay tuned and see tommorrows blog to see what comes out of the kiln!!!!

In the meantime here are a few new listings that I have up on Etsy...

This is my newest focal bead for sale at Etsy. I love the way the rippled path turned out and the silvered icory against black is pretty dramatic too. While you are at my Etsy Shop make sure you check out my lampwork pairs. They are perfect for making your own earrings and I have jsut lowered the price on them too!

New Focal Bead - FLORAL GARDEN!

Floral Garden Bead on Etsy
I am in love with this bead. It is a black base that has been acid etched with raised flowers that I left shiny. Together I think they really "pop" off the black background.

Today is a great day!

I really try to keep politics out of my blog but my mind is consumed today with the joy of our great country. We will never be the same, we must always remember the past and keep our eyes to the future. No matter what comes our way we can overcome!
You can do what you set your mind to do with a hard work and discipline.

Today is a Great Day!!!!!

Just set up a new shop at ArtFire...

So, everyone is talking about this new site ArtFire and after giving it much thought I decided to give it a go. I have only 2 things currently listed but more will be up in the near future. I still love Etsy and that will be my primary store but it never hurts to try something new, right? Here are the 2 focal beads I have up so far...

I'm in another Treasury!

I love browsing through Etsy Treasuries and am always honored to be featured in one.
This is a great one created by RiversEdge.

I am still having a blast making these "Wheels". I love how uniform the shape is. I have issues with beads not being the same size. Maybe there is a 12 step program to help me get over that.

New Shape!

I have been toying with the idea of disc beads that are more chunky than the spiral discs that I make. I really think this new shape which I am calling "Wheels" would work really well in lots of different jewelry designs.
