On a Blue Note Glass Beads 8.21.16

 It is with a heavy heart I must share our final post. I have started a new job teaching school and I am simply overwhelmed with my duties and working more hours than I did in the film industry! There is no time to breathe, much less make beads or attempt to sell them. It may never be revived again...or it may become a summer project. At this point I just don't know.

I wanted to take a moment to thank the artisans to found us early and stuck by the idea of promoting others work for the years this blog was active. Some of you have shared every single day while others have been more silent publicly but giving me constant support and advice. Each of you is deeply appreciated!

Lampwork Bead Sets 8.3.16

Hello lampwork lovers. One of the best types of lampwork bead sets to buy is the focal / pair combo. Nothing is better for fast and easy jewelry. You either have a focal for a necklace or bracelet with two accent beads OR...use the matching pair for earrings. Either way, your new jewelry should come together quickly! Today's feature is just such a combo and was created by Nina Eagle
