Me time!

Well, I have made a lot of beads recently...but most of them were for me! I decided that I 'needed' an aqua necklace, so set about making myself loads of aqua beads in different styles and colour combinations. And I'm very happy with the result! The joys of being a bead and jewellery maker :o)

 It is actually quite rare that I make beads just for me...not that I don't have any, it's just that the ones I do keep tend to either be seconds (bubbles, slightly wonky or scummy glass) or ones that I've been about to list on Ebay, but I then decide I can't let them go! They are known as 'keepers' to us lampworkers and we all get them every now and then!

Anyway, I do have some for sale at last, including this inky blue and gold focal bead - looks lovely and really strokable too. It's listed on Ebay now, so buy it quick before I decide to keep it!
