NEW Encased Glass Murrini Beads on Etsy!

Looooong time, no beads! Yep – I know it’s been a while since I last posted some new beads. Maybe even 5 or 6 months – yikes! 😮

This happened for a few different reasons… First, it was blazing hot at the end of last summer. And our hot weather lasts well into October. I fully admit to being a hot-weather-wimp. Torching next to a 1600° flame, a 850° rod warmer, and a 960° kiln when it’s over 100° outside is downright miserable for me.

Then, we rearranged my glass studio area, and it took several months to get the new area all set up with a much improved, and more powerful ventilation system. Then came the holidays…and well, it just took a long time to get things back up to speed – what can I say? :-\

The downside is that I missed a few months of really good torching weather when it was nice and cool – and now the temperatures have already climbed back up into the high 80’s, low 90’s.

But, the good news is – that I am bursting at the seams with ideas and designs for new murrini, and new beads after being away for so long!

Sitting back down at the torch to make this new batch of beads was great fun. It’s good to know I haven’t lost my ‘mojo’, and I have renewed energy to make even more pretties! 😀

These beads are now available on Etsy:

    • Hi Nancy! Thanks for your note 🙂 I don’t do custom orders but I definitely plan on making more of these beads soon! I always post the date that new beads will be listed on my FB page ahead of time: https://www.facebook.com/CCGlassArt-124915327553371/ Then another announcement goes out on my blog (and again on FB) when the beads go live on Etsy. Thank you for your interest in my beads, Nancy! 😀 -Christie/CCGlassArt
