Sum-Sum-Summertime Beads

Hello! I hope you are having a great week. πŸ™‚

Though summer hasn’t officially started, you’d never know it here in SoCal – at least where I live. We’ve been hitting 100 degrees already!

Now is the time when kids are getting out of school, and families are planning elaborate vacations – as for me, I am pricing portable air conditioners expecting to spend many long (yet enjoyable) hours this summer in front of my torch trying new designs and playing with new glass colors!

This week on eBay I have added a set of smaller sized beads in breezy seasonal colors of aqua and coral called “Cabana”.

I originally envisioned “Cabana” being made into a matching bracelet and earring set. But these beads would also look beautiful all strung together into one necklace.

I also have a Pandora bead available in a new painterly floral design called “Pink Roses”. You will definitely see more rose designs from me as I absolutely adore making them. This auction ends later today (Wednesday, 6/16).

“Desert Wind” is another bead I listed this week which has a more rustic, organic design with lots of fine silver foil burnished into Dark Ivory glass. I blew my own shards in shades of turquoise and coral and applied them to this bead in a random pattern for splashes of color with a wistful look.

Finally, I just listed a bead called “Renaissance” that features an intricate old-world design with scrolls, olive branches and tons of silver glass. This is a new style bead for me which I hope you’ll like.

Sneak Peek: I will be listing a brand new collection of beads in another day or two featuring gorgeous, natural earth tones in shades of topaz, amber and pistachio from wonderfully reactive glass shards with opalescent pink-blue highlights from a brand new silver glass called Clio.

Thank you for looking!

Until next time,
