Well, Rich has got my shop all finished. I should be toasty warm this winter. I’ll post some pictures later. But in the meantime, here’s the pick of the day. On for $10 including shipping.

Here’s one I just listed on ArtFire. Eventually, someone will get brave and be my first sale over there!

Here’s a link to my new shop:

How Low Can I Go?

Sometimes I just need to make something simple like spacer beads. And actually, they are quite challenging. Trying to make tiny little spacers and have them come out exactly the same size is almost impossible. But I do love making them. It’s fun to see the kiln full of mandrels sticking out!

The guys have been busy insulating my shop for me. I’m so excited! They built a wall (complete with a door) for me and now I’ll be able to make beads year-round. This of course prompted a cleaning spree. They still need to insulate the roof, but hopefully the shop will be toasty warm in no time. Good thing too, ’cause the mountains are getting pounded with snow today and the wind is howling here.

Here’s a sampling of the spacers on Artfire ( Just $3.50 and that includes shipping!  Thanks for stopping by.

New Digs!

OK. Here’s the deal. My EBay auctions usually sell for the $9.99 that I list them at. The fees, however are quite substantial. Etsy is better, however they also charge final value fees.

I don’t make a lot of money on my beads to begin with and that’s not why I do this.  I make beads because I love doing it.

So, I’ve made the decision that I’m moving my beads to This is a great site that charges a low flat monthly fee for me to list my beads for sale and NO final value fees … whoo hooo!  That means you don’t have to wait for auctions to end either. However, you might have to be fast to grab the good ones since they will all be “Buy It Now’s”.

I hope you understand why I’m making this move. It will save you a lot of money in the end. Thanks for hanging in there with me and be sure to check my ArtFire shop often. New beads will be added regularly.
