So, I was supposed to be getting back to you last week with details of new beads and a bead shop update. Well, that’s been kinda delayed after what has been a somewhat hectic and, at times, stressful week. Sometimes I just have to tell myself to slow down. I get to thinking that everything has to be done yesterday, and I have to have a word with myself. Anyway, there will be new beads in the shop this next week. Here’s a little taster:
You might recognise some of these. With this batch of beads, I tried to make up more of the designs that were popular in the first lot of ceramic beads that I listed, but there are some new pieces, like that blue framed pendant. There’ll be a lot of completely new designs in the following lot which are currently waiting to be fired. Speaking of which, it’s here!
Perhaps I should point out that this is, in fact, a kiln, not a portaloo. It’s done its initial drying out firing and I’ve been busy bat-washing the shelves today. So, hopefully, I’ll also get my first bisque firing done in the next few days.
Having had a little word with myself, I decided to do some relaxing earring making. It’s the market this weekend and I felt that I could do to have some simpler earrings available. And some shorter pairs too. These Petra drops really don’t need much adding to them anyway. So, I managed to make just the one pair of shortish earrings. However, I did make a couple more simple pairs.
With Scorched Earth spikes, of course.
These bracelets are still selling so…

And here’s a last couple of new pieces that will be on the stall tomorrow.
And finally, a little something for me…..

The market starts at 10am tomorrow and runs until 3pm. I’ll be stationed outside Fat Face, facing the music stage, in Frome town centre.
