Quick, look!

Sunshine and blue sky!

It'll be a lot more pleasant in the shedio today without the wind and driving rain of the last few days...

Back to the 'bay!

It's been a while, but I thought I'd give ebay another go.

I've just listed eight lovely focals, including this luscious pink one;

And the inevitable organic!

Why don't you pop over and take a look?

Reichenbach Multicolour

Oh how I love this glass! I never know quite what it's going to do, but it's usually something wonderful!

Just look at these beads in my Etsy shop...

Something different

A round focal? In transparent green? Not my usual style at all, but I like it a lot. I think I'll be making more of these!

A shedio to call my own...

Well. After nearly six years of making beads, I finally have my very own shedio!

We've lived in six different rental properties in that time and I have been lucky with some very understanding landlords who have allowed me to set up my studio in every one of our houses. I've worked in my cousin's shed, a garage, a caravan, another shed, an outhouse and a conservatory. While I was grateful for every single one, they were all only temporary and whenever I moved my stuff in, I never even fully unpacked.

So now we finally have our own house and I have been able to get my very own space :) We have just replaced the shed that came with the house; a dark, damp, leaky tumbledown shed...

...with this shiny new potting shed, complete with its own electricity supply!

It's small, yes (a compact 5' x 7'), but perfectly formed and exactly what I need. 

And I am so looking forward to really making it my own.

Hello 2013!

I've just relisted lots of beads on Etsy, including this lovely, calming blue one.

 I do have lots of new ones waiting to be 'cooked' in the kiln, but they will have to wait a few days because I'm getting an electricity supply in my shedio more extension cables through windows..woo hoo!
