Back from the holidays

I love to spend time at the belgian coast...the only downfall are these awfully large buidings near the coast; most of them date back to the 1960's and are far from beautiful.
I love to go shell hunting on the beach and watching the sun sets.

Each time we got there I also take a bag with my "second choice" beads and leave them in the sand, in little excavations in the stones of the windbreaker walls etc and then sit down to watch when people walking on the beach find them.

Yes, I also know how to make focal beads ;-)


I even love to make them, but for some unknown reasons, they do not sell at all in my etsy store.
I gave up on selling on ebay about two years ago and since that time, no more selling focals :-(

First test bead with Lori and Kim murrini

I love using murrinis on my focal beads. I used to make them myself but then I end up with about 100 chips of the same kind and I get bored easily...so I never used them all. Besides making murrinis is a tedious job...
so I took the plunge and spent some money on etsy buying lots of small bags with wonderful little coloured murrinis inside.
Her is the first test bead made with some murrini from Lori and Kim.

Some new beads in an old favorite style

Copper blue is one of my favorite colors ever...if I had to limit myself to just a handful of colors, it would definitely be part of those.
Here I decorated it with a simple band of SIS and encased it in a thick layer of crystal clear.
