Volume 7 Issue 5 May 2010 What's New in May?
New canes are in the making—I have to completely replenish my kaleidoscope cane collection for my pillow beads since I have exhausted a very extensive selection. I did two new ones that are sold but got the creative juices going for the 4th of July! I will work on new beads for the sparkly holiday.
It is GOOD to fall back in love with the polymer clay medium. I am not sure how many of these canes I will make but there will be more colour schemes than just the 4th of July.
My tab and floral rounds need to be replenished as well, I created some new flower canes that I want to try out on the tabs and I want to get some of my beads strung on completed projects.
New white tab bead/discs are available for the waterslide decals now. I have shown a few of my favourite designs and will be stringing these beads on some elaborate necklaces.
The whole point of these blanks is to give you a choice of the bead and the decal without having to purchase the whole decal sheet.
I finished one lampwork beaded necklace and have over 12 more to go. I have a large collection of focal beads that I have found along the way over the last couple of years and I am in the process of finally completing those. I just LOVE the way the seed beads drape and I totally fascinated by fringe!
New earring and necklace sets were added using some of my other lampwork beads and now I only have one set left. That didn’t last long! I still have a few more sets of matching beads that I will put sets together from.
They are available on www.bluemorningexpressions.com now.
www.theseedbeadpatternstore.com has been updated and all the bracelet patterns are up. I have a couple of the tapestries up but have not finished all of those yet. I added a few more wolf patterns and I have added a free pattern section. I will be putting up free patterns on the site.
If you have purchased bracelet patterns from me in the past and did not receive the 10 colour and under updates, please let me know and I will get those to you. I have updated the patterns to make it easier on everyone.
Fans of clip on earrings for big girls will find www.cliponearringsboutique.com restocked with earrings just for them. I added 20 sets of dangles with Swarovski, glass pearls, Czech faceted rounds and lots of iridescent and sparkly things. Also added were one of a kind sets of millefiori glass hearts, diamonds and chicklet beads.
Thank you so much for all the input and emails. I enjoy all the encouragement that you send my way.
Until next month,
