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:

Assorted Glass Bead Collections

It’s been a while since I’ve sat down and made coordinating sets of beads. But I recently received an order of pretty colored glass frit blends and they inspired me to make several beads that all go together. 😀

These sets are now available on Etsy:

BEACH WALK - assorted bead collection

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

New Lampwork Beads on Etsy!

Something I haven’t done in a long time is post beads to Etsy for sale. But I have had several requests to list beads on Etsy for those that don’t enjoy the auction format of eBay.

So I am offering this collection of beads ready for immediate shipment on Etsy.com. 😀  I’ve included a few medium-sized focals (1″) along with a cute, petite mini focal as well as a round bead pair – all in some of my most popular designs, colors and patterns:

Sea Grass 1" focal bead
Mossy Stone round bead pair
Sea Urchins mini focal bead
Lake Moss 1" bead focal
