How many beads can a beadmaker make...

Never enough, it seems! I'm giving my weary little hands a quick break from shaping beads. Hundreds have passed through my hands this week. I have so much to share with you and so many new beads to list. I'm going to introduce them on etsy for a while until I have enough of a stock pile to put them on my website. I have been quietly making updates to the website. Owls, cardinals, canaries, sea urchins, poppies, tiger lilies and dandelions are now part of my regular bead collection. Which means they can be bought at wholesale and you can always find them.


I have new beads in my etsy shop. Variations of dandelions and lilies.
And new bead shapes, small tubes that are perfect for earrings.

In my camera are my additions to my Branch Beads, in some beautiful new fall colors. In the oven are the Gustav Klimt beads. Tons of them. I don't want to sell them, I want to keep them on my bead table and pet them while I utter, "my precious." But not to worry, there is the ever looming bills that keeps me from doing such silly things!


A little extra eye candy. A necklace I made a few weeks ago. I found those amazing wire wheel pendants (Michael's) with a hole in the middle that just screamed, toggle clasp. Amazonite, carnelian and seed beads in earthy colors come together with brass and copper components. I used one of my wafer beads in copper and a teal toggle.

You are such a tease. I'm waiting for the Klimt beads too. Have been since you teased us with that necklace not long ago. So I'll sit here quietly and grow older by the day waiting for them to come out of the oven and you to put them in your shop. ;^) Really like the new dandelion colors, too!
