Moving house

Yep, we're on the move again...I've been trying to cram in as much torching as possible, because it'll be a couple of weeks while we move and then I get the shedio (a cross between a shed and a studio!) set up again. I'll post some pics when it's all done!

So these beads are the last ones to be listed for now - yet another Multicolour moon bead...I love this one, it was very nearly a keeper!

I haven't made any rainbow beads for a while, I guess I'm finally feeling in a cheerful Spring sort of mood!

These beads are on Ebay now, auction ending on Sunday.

Eggs and pebbles

I have to say I'm struggling to part with this little was one of those beads that starts out not knowing exactly what it wants to be, but then a Dragon's Egg was born! It feels lovely to hold and it looks pretty from every angle. Hmmmm, maybe a new style to play with, methinks.

Keeping with the organic theme, these pebbles are something I've been wanting to try for a while. I must admit to being a bit of a rock geek (and I don't mean rock music - although I'm a bit partial to that too!) and I'm fascinated by rocks and stones. I have been known to exclaim over the patterns in a rock and inform any disinterested person who happens to be with me that "this is red sandstone, you know"! So it was logical that I'd want to recreate this in glass. I am happy with these pebbles, they look like something you might find on a beach.

So, if you're on a quest for dragon's eggs or glass pebbles, take a look at Ebay now...
