I’ve been doing a lot of these “little world” style beads. Like these, a set on eBay this week:
I spent a lot of effort trying to get that super-mottled look on there – obviously the more color, the better – and I think my efforts show. These have a wonderful ravaged look to them, with some really intense color spots. Expect to see more of these!
My Winter SALE in my Etsy shop starts tomorrow, Thursday the 15th, and runs through the end of the year! Everything in the shop is 10% off – no coupon or code necessary! Check back often, as I will continue to add items throughout the sale!!
Between the Thanksgiving holiday and a neck injury which is giving me constant headaches, I haven’t had enough torch time to produce anything worthwhile. But I’m sure by next week I will have something up on eBay!
About those headaches – they are definitely slowing me down. I’m afraid there will be less glass for a while until it gets sorted out. Looks like physical therapy for a bit, hopefully no injections (I hate needles!). It’s cutting into my knitting time too…:)
This weekend, Saturday and Sunday the 12th and 13th of November, I will be at the Bay Area Bead Extravaganza (BABE!) show. This is the biggest 2-day show on the West coast! If you’re in the San Francisco Bay area, please check it out – tons of beautiful beads and supplies. And stop by my table and say Hi!
I haven’t had much to say for a while – things have just been going along with nothing major popping up. But today I listed a set of beads on eBay that I am immensely proud of, and I wanted to share! Here are 13 amazing large rondelle or disc beads, done with fine silver leaf and silverglass and of course lots of clear to enhance all the beautiful colors. Not quite opal, but truly spectacular:

One of my new eBay auctions, just listed today. I am SO proud of the colors I managed to achieve on this one, I just had to show it off a bit. “Maui Wowee” has an amazing variegated teal base color, and those dots came out a fabulous pink/orange that just pops! The colors are so lush and tropical.
