Thought you might like to read my Article in the Wetherby News on Friday.
I was really pleased with it - apart from the reporter didnt really grasp how my beads are made - not in a kiln - but over a torch (the photo is a bit of a give-away!!)
Hope you like it too :)

How exciting!

Something for the Weekend... :)

Just photographed my new beads, quite simple in design, but completely yummy!

Starting from the top, we have a Large Lentil and 5 spree bead set in Vetrofond Odd Lot Jupiter. Gorgeous deep russett marbled effects.
Below that is Marbled Avocado - gorgeous grey and golden tones there looks a little like soapstone.

The beads above are simply transparent teal etched very very lightly.

Hope you are enjoying the weekend.... going to see Sweeney Todd at the pics soon! Cant wait! :)
