No New Work – It’s HOT!

Temperatures in the high 80s and 90s for the past week – and now we have high humidity too! My studio usually gets about 10 degrees hotter when you add in the kiln and the torch, so I haven’t been melting glass for the last week. I am SO disappointed in the weather! It’s very unusual for us – hello, global warming – as we usually have milder, dry summers.

I have some older work which has never been seen that I’ll put up on eBay next week, but I’m praying for the heat to let up so I can torch again!

New Stacker on Etsy!

I just listed this fabulous new stacker bead in my Etsy shop, and I think it is my favorite one yet! Exquisite colors and a little bigger than usual. Checker it out:

Five Magics

Sterling silver discs, textured caps, and core. Ready to wear – just slide it onto a chain or cord!

New Work

I’ve been doing a lot of these “little world” style beads. Like these, a set on eBay this week:

Boulders

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!

No New Auctions for This Week

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…:)
