Thank you all for your great response on my newest bead bowls!! As I told one of my bead buddies Lois, I have over 10,000 beads in my studio and need to dig deep to find some of these buried treasures as well as unpack the newest finds from Thailand to add to the mix!
CLICK PHOTOS BELOW TO BEAM YOURSELF TO THE WEBSITE WHERE YOU CAN PURCHASE THESE COMBOS PLUS MANY MORE…ALSO CHECK OUT THE PENDANT SPECIAL!!!
Each mix takes me about a half hour to 45 minutes time just to pull together the colors and then photograph them. Then come the descriptions and listing on the site. I really need to take pix of this process because it is hard to believe how playing with my little beads can consume the entire house.
One room for creating the combos, one for photography, one for all the computer stuff, and one for packaging and shipping items. This doesn’t include the studio space for the glass which has now graduated all into the converted garage…….now a full time working studio.
Oh how I love beads!! Each one to me is a little piece of art…a little piece of history. Beads are one of the few things I have found that are a fairly affordable extravagance. When I get a bit down about something I buy a few beads…when I’m happy, I buy beads. When I can’t buy beads I make beads. My entire vacations revolved around “where’s the beads”…………..Ok…I think I need therapy…but these teeny pleasures are the best in my book!!!
I love hearing the stories from my customers/friends why they collect beads and make jewelry. If you have a story you would like to share I would love to post it here on the blog. I plan to post a bit of bead history here from countries all over the world . Stay tuned for more info and many more bead bowls to come!!!
A reminder when purchasing beads on the website…. For your convenience…..if you wish to combine beads into one shipment over a 7 day period and are purchasing from the site, I will reimburse you in either beads or a refund for any shipping overage you pay per set. I will charge actual shipping by weight for combined orders…Just tell me when you are done shopping and I’ll send your shipment out.
