2 new focal beads


I was in focal bead mode again last weekend and made lots of them. These are the first two, now on etsy.

Using up my czech glass


A matching focal and a lovely set of color-changing spacers, all made from remnants of czech glass lying around in my studio. I have committed to using up all the old glass in order to make room for some new stuff ;-)

Lots of small sets


I love playing with beads: arranging beads into small samplers or color-coordinated sets. Here are a few examples that are going up on etsy, except for the one in front: in all the pictures I took I could not get the colors right. It has chocolate brown spacers, 2 brillant red striped beads, 2 camel striped beads and 3 transaprent topaz striped beads, but everything looks dull and dark in the pictures...

More wishing Stone focals



3 more Wishing Stone focal beads now in my etsy store.
All have been made on 2.5mm mandrels, so they can be threaded on a leather cord.

2 new focals


I am back in full focal bead modus...don't know how it happened but I actually like to make them again.
The first is a wishing stone: dark ivory rolled in silver foil, and with a sparkling middle.
The second is with shards and a murrini.
