That's right - Christmas in September! With the cost of everything rising (notably postage, glass rods, packaging, etc.) I am probably going to be forced to raise my prices soon. So I wanted to have a Christmas in September sale for all of you, so you can get an early start on your holiday projects! Plus, it will be a good way for me to keep busy! Starting tomorrow, Monday, September 15th, all Made to Order and Large Hole Beads will be 10% off in my store for the rest of the month of September. I've already figured out how to initiate the discount on the Large Hole Bead category - I'm having a bit more trouble with the Made To Order category. But hopefully, by tomorrow, it will be worked out! Hint Hint - the Large Hole Beads are already marked with their sale prices, if you want to go shopping now!
Months ago, I took a class at ArtBliss given by Barbara Lewis of Painting with Fire. It involved learning how to make torch-fired enamel beads. I loved it - as you may be able to guess. Barbara did teach us how to fuse items into a flat pendant, but we didn't spend a lot of time on that process, as the day seemed to go so fast! I was making enameled pieces the other night, and due to my own ineptness (remember the big toe burn???) I was able to fuse these two pieces together totally by accident. Now of course, it isn't a usable piece. However, now that I know how to do it, I can see some pieces like this in my future! I can't wait to get more copper cutouts!
