Can you tell I love being back at the torch ? ;-)




All these and many others, are waiting for new homes here:
And remember the 10%sale with the coupon code TRANSLATE is still valid, because it takes me forever to translate all my listings to german...

A little variation on a favorite style



As most of you surely know, I love making nugget shaped beads and silvered ivory is my absolute favorite. Another favorite are silver glasses, but I often hesitate to use them because they are quite expensive.
Yesterday, I broke out some double Helix rods and my beloved silvered ivory and played a little bit.
You can see the new beads here:

Finally new beads to show






I am finally back at the torch. Now it is a little more than 6 weeks since my dad passed away and slowly, life is getting back to normal, at least partially. My mom is still living with us and we are slowly accomodating to each other ;-)
I want to express my gratitude to all my virtual friends and blog readers who took the time to send prayers and comforting messages. My family and I are very grateful for this!

I had been avoiding my studio during this hard time, but now I am finally able to go back to my torch without starting to cry after a few minutes.
 These new beads are already in my etsy shop. I am trying to post new beads regularly. And on top of this I decided to put a long time resolution into action and to translate my listings to german. During this time, which will likely take me at least a few more days, you will get a 10% discount on everything currently in my shop if you use the coupon code TRANSLATE.
