New at Talking Beads

Last night I made a sale! Whooppee, so exciting. I have not made anything new for ages but last night, in desperation, I sat looking at the beads. Making, cutting up, wandering off and then coming back and messing about and failing.
Suddenly I spied the little marble stone beads that I have had for ages. Just a few, I sold a bracelet using the majority at Christmas. I made a pair of earrings, the same style as the red ones above.
I then tweeted about them, and Bingo, within half an hour they had sold.
Now I know that is very unusual, and normally you can list, tweet, blog, facebook, forum until you are blue in the face. However, I was then enthused to have a go and make more.
The result is the necklace and earrings above. I am very much in love with the necklace and REALLY REALLY want it myself!
I will be a good girl though and list it on Folksy and see if it sells. If not....!!!
Hope you remembered the clocks changing, I didn't and was really thrilled to see that I had slept in!
Have a good Sunday.

New Me!

Here I am! I was chatting on Twitter to Natalie from HarveyCraftCards when she Tweeted that she is going to be offering branding and such, including avatar and banner as well as labels, letter heads etc.
So, as I like her work, I took her up on her offer. In less than an hour she had come up with this. Her brief: Fun, large beads, small beads. Quite loose. I love it. Sent a copy to Janice who is on holiday in Canada, she loves it too and bingo. We are ready to go. Thank you Nat.
