A New Year & New Lampwork Bead Sets

HaPpY NeW YeAr! 😀

I am still wondering how 2013 went by so fast! It really is true that the older you get the faster time goes by. I think I say this every New Years but I definitely need to start ‘smelling the roses’ more often so life doesn’t keep flying by… 🙂

Even though the weather has been unseasonably warm, high 70’s to low-mid 80’s, torching is still tolerable at these temps. So I’ve been busy making new bead sets for my Etsy store.

Here is a peek at some of my latest creations:

NEW Big Hole Bead Caps in Solid Brass & Copper

Introducing new metal items! 😀

These are solid brass and copper bead caps used to finish European style big hole beads like Trollbeads, Pandora, Biagi, Chamillia, etc.

Once the bead is cored with metal tubing, and flared over the top edge, the bead cap is permanently secured against the bead as a decorative accent. (You can view my Etsy store for my finished lampwork beads with bead caps!)
