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