It seems to have taken me the longest time but I finally have my latest batch of beads ready to add to the bead shop tonight. There are around 150 items waiting to be listed. They’ll be going live today, 19th August, at 6.30pm BST. There or there abouts. Here’s just a little of what will be available.
These cones were a hit last time, so I’ve made up some more…
…including a small number of matching pairs.
Talking of matching pairs, a while ago, I made myself a stack of beads. It was only when I finished that it occurred to me that it would be kinda helpful to have some smaller beads, to use at the top of earrings and suchlike. My default size that I tend towards when making beads is always kinda big, I realised. So, I challenged myself –
Now I just need to make some for me to use… There are six sets in all; if they don’t go I might start pinching them myself. And here are some of the gazillion pairs of earring charms and beads that I’ve made to go with them.
Really, there are loads, and that’s not to mention the healthy pile of points and wedge pairs that I’ve made.
And then there’s the headpins too – there’s also a lot of them.
But it’s not all earring-y things. There are a number of new focals – some of which took an age to decorate…
And I came up with a new look bird design.
I’ve also made up multiples of some rounds and rondelles with some of my favourite glazes, so they can be bought singly.
Finally, I’ve made a number of one-of-a-kind focals and head pin bundles, and some other bits and bobs, which I’ll be selling on Ceramic Art Bead Market in the next few days. In the meantime, all these and many more will be available in the bead shop later today.
