Well… I’ll resist the temptation to grumble on about doing Etsy listings again. I shall just say that I managed to build up a backlog of about twenty unlisted pieces. I was concentrating on other things like magazine stuff and my ceramics experiments, then spending my down time enjoying just making jewellery. I’ve now got all the listings drafted and I’ll be activating them over the next few days, starting with the earrings tonight. So, this post is a bit of a preview of what will be heading to the shop in the next couple of days. I’ve had a bit of a necklace spree lately, which is very unusual for me. It started when I got these fabulous chunky ceramic beads from my local bead shop.
They are available in lots of colours on the Beadz Bazaar website, along with various other lovelies. It’s a new website so do hop along and have a look-see. Here they are again in pink and green.

More chunky ceramics here, but these are from Smitten Beads.

I’m still loving the blue and orange thing.

This one has a ton of art beads in it and I’m afraid the price is going to have to reflect that… gah…
And finally on the necklace front, this one. I actually made it for the Art Bead Scene monthly challenge. As a part of the team, I can’t win anything obviously, but when I saw the challenge image…
…I immediately thought of this butterfly button that I’ve had for a while. And lo:
Earrings next. There’s a couple of pairs that have appeared in Beads and Beyond.
And also some big summer-y, bo-ho-ho jobs:
I’m loving the new czech glass thorn beads.
I’ve used them again in some of this post’s regulation crop of Scorched Earth earrings.

And now for some bracelets… I have so much semi-precious in my stash that’s been sat on the back burner. I’ve resolved to get some used.
Here’s another piece from my B&B tin type project. I’m not sure if it really fits with everything else in my shop but I’ll give it a go.
This next bracelet is very simple. I made it from some beads that were left over from another magazine project. I just liked the combination of colours and finishes. If it doesn’t go, I’ll have it.
I’m quite tempted to keep this one too.
This one I’m calling Rejetta…

Finally, here’s a last pair of earrings. They’re not headed for the shop. They’ve been hanging out in my ears.

Everything else will be available in my Etsy shop in the next few days. If there’s something you want listing right now, do let me know!
