Ringing in the New Year

I am cleaning house to make room for 2012 beads by offering this set of Odd Lot Focals on eBay!

This set includes five medium sized 1″ lentil focals, one 1 1/4″ sized large lentil focal, and one of my large round ‘Pier’ style bead focals.

Murrini Chips – “Vortex”

I have been a busy bee making lots of murrini lately. I really enjoy making the canes – I think it’s the excitement of layering color after color, anticipating the ‘big pull’, and then the final ‘ahhh’ moment when I snip the long cane for the first time to see my miniaturized design inside.

Here is a new murrini design in neutral sheer black and ivory with striking silver glass stripes. Both variations are made from the same formula but offered in a starburst pattern, or twisted swirl (available now on Etsy).
