Dear God, it has been a horrendous week here in the UK. It’s taken something to shake myself out of staring into the middle distance, muttering about ‘hell’ and ‘handcarts’. But things have to go on and I have a new batch of beads for the taking. So, I’m going to update the bead shop tomorrow night (Thursday, 30th June) at 6.30pm (BST). It’s not quite as large an update as the last few, but there’s still a good amount, including *LOTS* of earring charms. I had so much fun combining different glazes with the last lot that I did, that almost as soon as I’d sent those out I made up stacks of different shaped charms to experiment with some more. They fall loosely into three different shapes. There are these bullet shaped ones (I’m not really happy with the term but I can’t think of another, suitable name).
Then there are some long skinny drops –
And finally, there are these kinda dagger/lantern shaped pairs.
That’s just a taster – there are lots more of each shape. Another new thing – these bone beads. Well, there’re not strictly bone-shaped, more flared tubes. What would you call them?
And here’s a set with one tube and lots of rounds. I have to share it here because it’s one of my favourites.
I’ve made more of these concave charms…
…quite a lot more…
And revisited these crescents connectors I made a while ago.
These tubby cones were also popular last time –
And there’s a few more pairs of cones, including these.
What else? Oooo – hold the front page! – I made three more pairs of these moth wings in different colours!
There’s also the regulation crop of head pins.
Aside from all these, there’s a number of mixed sets…
several lots of scuffed, faceted porcelain beads,
and a selection of other miscellaneous earring charms…
I reckon that’s everything. So, 6.30pm BST, Thursday, 30th June, 2016. And ! here’s a link to the shop !
