Lots of new beads and new ways to get them

Recently I decided to start selling my beads on Facebook too, 
on my Fan page here:

My etsy shop has mostly sets of identical beads and some focals, but I love assembling beads into color matching sets and combined sets ready to make jewelry.
So far I only sold these to local jewelry designers or at local bead shows I attended.
From now on, you can buy these straight from my Facebook page. They are all in a special album.
For those of you not on Facebook, I will post the new sets also here, so I could make you a reserved listing on etsy of the sets you like.

The first ones will get listed tonight:
Set of 15 beads, 7 rondelles with raised frit decoration, 4 light blue sparkling rocks, 2 aqua sparkling rocks and 2 frit and silver nuggets.

Set of 10 silvered green transparent handshaped nugget beads with lots of sparkle due to the small fine silver coating and one matching 20mm cross.

Making room

Heading into my 12th year in lampworking, I will be making some major changes.

Initially I started making beads because I was a jewelry designer at the time and always searching for new and interesting stuff for my necklaces and bracelets.

I went to craft fairs to sell my jewelry, but then slowly, my life changed.
 I started making beads just for the pleasure of melting glass and opened an etsy shop just for the beads.

At about the same time, I shifted gradually from jewelry making to rosary making as I found my personal niche.

I always kept a rather large stash of beads,either focals or ready made sets for jewelry, in case I would go back to jewelrymaking.
But it has not happened and I am pretty sure it will not happen, because I am very happy with the beadmaking on one side and the rosarymaking on the other.

So I am finally ready to part with all these beads. 

 I will be starting with listing all the focal beads, some are already in my etsy shop  and more will follow.
Over the holidays I will be inspecting my sets to see which ones are still up to date, maybe adding a few beads and making some changes, and create a special shop category for them.

Until Sunday evening you will be able to take advantage of my big 25% off sale.

Big earring listings ahead !

I must admit that my postings here are not quite regular.
I tend to be much more active over on Facebook, so if you happen to be on Facebook too, please consider liking my page there:

I have been working a lot on my sparkling nuggets sets for custom orders but took time last week to go through my earring pair box and it was choking full.
I always hesitate to list these beads on etsy as it is very time consuming to take pictures and list them, compared to larger sets.
I managed to take pictures of 20 pairs tonight, all will be listed tonight. I have at least another 50 pairs of earring beads that have accumulated and need to be listed, all will be done this week so you can order them in time for christmas presents.
