Finally, finally, I got some new beads made – and finished. I’ll be updating the bead shop at 6-7pm this evening. There are a range of new designs. Several weeks ago I received this tempting looking box.
Lots of them:
It’s a lovely collection of vintage bird stamps, used by French kids in the 1940s. I haven’t tried them all out but here’s some of the range. There are owls (of course…):
And woodpeckers, swallows, and… not sure what the wee ghost bird is:
I’ve also made some more past favourites – here’s a selection of what will be available:
And also more pod pins:
There’s a new style of word bead:
Along with a handful of the old standards:
Finally, there’s a selection of the coloured chain, including this rich emerald – just right for a bit of pantone-ing!
I had hoped to get more of the patinated metal pieces made, but with the delay the heatwave caused, I thought I’d best just get these listed, and off my desk, where they’ve been sat around for some time now. I’m not sure when I’ll get chance to stock the shop up again in the coming weeks. I’m happy to take reserves, especially as it’s the end of the month, so get in touch if you fancy anything. You can see the rest of the new designs at 6 – 7pm at Something to do Beads on Etsy.
