This beautiful piece is just stunning - a large sterling focal, ornately carved. Red lampwork sprinkled with raku frit and matching coral beads make this piece hard to ignore. This is the third and last piece with this design - it won't last long.
This year the Southern Christmas Show (Nov. 2008) proved to be another great year. Sales were a little off from last year, but that's to be expected given the economy. A nice surprise was to be given honorable mention for our booth this year - I think it looked pretty good, what do you think?

These sterling silver cored beads are so much fun to make I can't seem to stop. They may be worn on the popular Pandora, Biagi or Troll bracelets as pictured below, but I love them on a sterling chain. They are such attention getters, and no two are alike. They come in all different colors, something for every outfit. They each come with their own 18" sterling silver chain and range in price from $35 to $48. Email me, if you're interested, and I'll send you a picture of what's available, because let me tell you, these are proving to be very popular and sell out very fast - but I MAKE MORE! WUHOO.
Beautiful lampwork beads all with a silver core lining - all will fit Pandora, Biagi and Troll bracelets, and any other bracelet that requires the same size hole in a lampwork bead. As you can see, there aren't alot of duplicates - because they're so much fun to make. They slide right on your bracelet, or look quite unique placed on a silver chain by itself, or with a couple of partners.
Getting ready for the Fall shows has inspired a bountiful supply of beautiful bracelets. These are only three. Some chainmaille in these: byzantine in the starfish bracelets (first) and some silver rosettes in the second and third. The last is a favorite of mine made with 'Psych', a wooooonderful glass. This one just might not make it to the show table!
