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.
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.
