This set is something I tried to re-do from a previous sale after having some requests..the only difficulty with this is that this style is obviously organic and free form which makes it hard to truly replicate, especially when there’s fuming involved. We’ll see if it goes over well on Etsy. AND I even left them shiny!
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.
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.
Are you still there? Have I scared you away due to my poor, neglected shop never being open? If not, great! I’ll be adding new work over these next few days by editing in batches the hundreds of pictures of beads that have been languishing in wait for me to get the shop re-opened. Here is a quick review of this set that will be listing tonight and into tomorrow, time permitting:
