Its all about the BEAD! Beads in my Etsy shop, BeadArtOriginals having a Trunk Show, and I just came up with some great designs for New Beads (can't tell ya yet!)
I have listed some Porcelain Slip Cast Beads on my Etsy Shop all sets discounted by $1 per bead.
So Sets that were $21 are now $18 and so on. I am having an even bigger sale on Stoneware Button Sets. I am finding it hard to list my buttons on etsy because they were all individually packaged for Bead and Button., now making it impossible to photograph..So, I will try my best to go through each one as fast I as can. The button listed currently were not put into bags due to time constraints before the show so I am starting here and little by little will add more! They are really nice, the glazes are not overpowering, the color of the deep chocholatey brown clay is coming through and I think they look great. The glazes I chose for those items were potters glazes., no bright colors, very subdued and rich. The colors for the porcelain beads of course are very clean as the porcelain does not impart any manipulation on the glaze. All items were fired to Cone 6 (High Fired) and are durable.
BeadArtOriginals is having a Trunk Show on Thursday, October 9th and YOU ARE ALL INVITED! There will be a drawing and the winner will receive a free gift courtesy of one of our members. First I encourage you to sign up for our newsletter so that you can be notified in advance of upcoming sales and specials offered by members of the group, as well as other interesting information.
A special Thank You to Carol Dean Sharpe for the Wonderful article on her blog yesterday about my etsy shop and items I had on Sale! That was such a special surprise that came to me on a day where I was little pre occupied with personal "stuff". Carol has been a big supporter of my work (and I a big fan of hers) since the beginning! B.E. (Before etsy) and she has also been a gentle helping hand to help me stay on course when I can't seem to absorb all that is going on around me (which is often). She created using flickr toys this wonderful mosaic of some of the pieces that she created using my beads/buttons that I just love. Please enjoy and don't forget to check out Carols Etsy Shop - SANDFIBERS and do some admiring & shopping!
