Hello! Well, Fall is officially here but we’re still seeing temperatures in the 90’s and next week will be 100+! 😦
Unfortunately, there are also fires still raging in the distance and the smoke and ash are being blown into our area.
I took this photo one afternoon when the smoke turned the sun an eerie dark orange.
It has definitely been a crazy summer in more ways than one!
Thank goodness for things like making beads. Being creative is very therapeutic and I’m so happy when I’m able to spend some time at the torch.
Even though the weather hasn’t changed much yet, I know the cooler weather is just around the corner!
In the meantime, I do have a few new beads available this week over on Etsy (the large marble-style bead has sold already).
I made these during the last cool-ish days we had (when we were only around 90, haha!)
I am really enjoying revisiting some of my previous designs from the past. I call them Neptune’s Net for the embedded copper mesh.
I also am having so much fun making larger size marble/paperweight-style gazing ball pendants.
Unlike most of my charm bracelet beads, these round gazing ball beads have a small hole that can be threaded right onto any smooth chain that is about 2.5mm or smaller. I often string them on ball-chain since it has the stability to showcase these larger beads well and the glass doesn’t catch on the chain.
Another way to wear these marble style beads is to use a ‘Beadhopper’ pendant stick to display them vertically.
OR, you can do what I usually do and just leave them on your desk to look at all day long. Lol! 😀
Thank you for looking and have a wonderful day,
