I’ve been a bit torn lately, between wanting to make lots of beads to get the kiln nice and full and wanting to make jewellery in preparation for Christmas. I’ve been a bit flakey this year and didn’t bother to hunt out lots of Christmas fairs. So, on that front, I just have the one in Frome, the Independent, but it’s usually a busy one (fingers crossed that remains the case this year!). I also want to get a good stock of new giftable pieces onto Etsy too. Over the last few days I’ve made a number of pieces that I’ll be adding to the shop over the next couple of days. In fact, I’ve already listed some this evening – a couple of necklaces and a couple of pairs of earrings:
(ceramic heart – Scorched Earth)
(torch-fired plates – 4 ophelia)
(ceramic spikes – Scorched Earth)
I hadn’t planned to wrap all that wire on but the spikes, the loop of which sit inside the large hole beads above, kept wiggling around and sticking out at odd angles. All the rest of the new pieces are bracelets. As you may know, if you read this blog regularly-ish, I’ve been selling quite a few of these recently.
In fact, various bracelets with Jo Lucksted‘s critter beads sold well at the market last Christmas, so I’ve been stocking up.
Finally, here’s three more new bracelets –
(ceramic house – Elukka)
(ceramic bracelet bar – Bo Hulley)
All of these should be on Etsy within the next few days but if there’s anything that particularly catches your eye that you’d like to order now, please do let me know via Etsy or Facebook. I’ll leave you with this wee bracelet that I made for me.
