New Beads

I have been out in the studio now it is warmer, so here are a few new beads. First is a set of lovely turquoise ocean beads with matching spacers. They take an age to make, with murinis , mesh and loads of different glass to give that effect of looking into the deep waters of the ocean.
The next set is a set of silver reactive glass with five matching spacers.

Both of these sets will be for sale, but for the moment I am just enjoying looking at them.

Happy New Year !!

Well a very happy new year to all my customers old and new. Christmas was a quiet one, just my husband the dog and me, so full of Christmas delights and loads of chocolates. Promise I will start healthy eating, next week. I will be putting the shows that I will be attending for 2011 on my website in the next few weeks.
I will also be putting items on Ebay and Etsy in the coming weeks.
This is a focal called Weymouth sands, which has little shells, silver fishing net and silver and gold reflection in the watery glass. It measures one quarter inches long by approx one inch at it's wides point, finished with silver findings and a black cord. It also comes with a signed authorization card with name and date it was made and signed by me. It is one of many of the unique Focals that I make.
