I put some beads in the etsy store and will have more later - some snowballs and the Florence White frosty beads that I love so much! All three sets are perfect for a last minute bracelet for your favorite bead lover! I'll ship same day or next day depending if the mailmail already came! You should get them in time, unless you live in Tuvalu - which would be quite interesting, I think!
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!
