New Handmade Glass Murrini Chips

Remember that Dunkin Donuts commercial years ago where the baker begrudgingly murmurs in the wee hours of the morning, “time to make the donuts”? Well for me it was “time to make more murrini” since my Etsy shop was getting low on stock.

But of course I am not at all begrudged (is that a word?) about it like that guy was. In fact, just the opposite. Lately I have been bursting with lots of color combination ideas for new murrini designs. If only I had more time at the torch!

Here are a few new murrini designs just added to my Etsy shop this week:

Lampwork Murrini Designs for Glass Artists

Besides making glass beads, another passion of mine is making decorative little murrini chips (also sometimes called millefiori). I use these in my own bead designs but end up making more than I can ever hope to use myself so I offer them to glass artists for use in their own glasswork.

I just added a few new murrini designs to my Etsy shop in pretty Spring and Summer colors!

*For those who would like to make their own murrini, don’t forget about my murrini tutorial also available on Etsy ;-D

Spring Bouquet Lampwork Bead

My daughter just told me that today is the first day of Spring! I thought for sure it was in April – but it is indeed today. I find this so funny because when I named and listed this bead on eBay I thought I was just pining for Spring, I didn’t realize it was already here – LOL! 😀

I will consider my timing kismet 😉  Now if the weather would just catch up…
