Z-99 headpin/thingamajigs. Building up inventory for BABE! 2011.
I’ve been in a metal etching fog the last few days and here are some of the beads that benefited from it:This first set will be going up on Etsy soon, I’ll post an update when it goes in the shop. The two little clear beads are solid but they look so sharp capped and cored, the beadcaps are out of Copprclay that I made ages ago and found them in a container and picked some beads to fit- voila!
This trio will be getting shipped shortly to somewhere special and I’ll list (or re-list in the case of the mustard bead) them on Etsy when I get them back.
Had a consuming craving for bacon after our lovely bike ride but had no tomato (don’t really like them anyway) and had to figure out how to make it a little more well rounded rather than just snarfing the bacon right off the paper towels as they drained.
Planning another shop update momentarily, spent yesterday experimenting with Pixie Dust- a tricksy powder that lends a magical shimmer to beads. Don’t know why I’ve never used it before now, but so glad I finally took the plunge. They’re a little hard to properly photograph and convey the shimmery metallic look of the beads.
Going up today on Etsy: Apologies for the somewhat blurry photos, I really need to figure out the settings on hubby’s little Nikon..or figure out which camera I need for the business.
Thought I’d edit a few more for the shop while the little man is napping, up on Etsy shortly:
New work going up shortly in the shop:Surely I’m not the only one who loves the colors together in this trio? *slurp* These will be slightly discounted since the two smaller ones were chipped due to my aggressive cleaning..d’oh! Doesn’t affect the bead, just makes them less than perfect. Oh, oh- love the bead caps on this one and the crackling is superb. Had a hard time letting go of these capped and cored hollows, so luscious but hard to capture on camera.
