More Beads

Based on the recommendations of several Etsy beadweavers, I've just placed an order with Fusion Beads for the beads I need for my new project. They have free shipping, and they had every color I needed. Or as my husband said, "How can there possibly be a color bead you don't have?"

I listed a new bracelet on Etsy today. It looks sort of Eames-era fifties-ranch-house style. I called it Atomic Geometric. The photos are not ideal. But then, photos never are.

First Sale!

I had my first Etsy sale today! I'm so giddy I was just dancing with the dog. My 14 year old son was torn between amusement and scorn at this display of high spirits. The dog was underwhelmed, too. Me, I'm over the moon about it.

I packed up the little beaded bottle in a cute box, tucked in two of my first lampworked beads and wrote one of the most heartfelt thank you notes ever. I hope she likes it as much in person as she did in the photos.

A sale! Wheeee!


My plan is to use this blog as a place to talk about my beadwork, both the process and the finished product. My intent is to start doing this soon, but so far all I've managed is the sidebar.
