Breather

I've been taking a little bit of an Etsy breather for the past few days. Sometimes I need to get out the the Etsy atmosphere and focus on other things. That can be hard, especially when a large part of my business is housed there. But it needs to be done now and then. Anyhoo, I have been working like crazy trying to replenish a lot of my staples along with some new pieces as well. I am hoping to build my stock up in order to get ahead for the Summer shows. It would be nice to not have to scramble the week before a show. I always say that and yet somehow I am still scrambling.

I put together a bunch of post earrings and some dangles and then I had the chance to work on some new designs. This little fairy below is one of them. Isn't she sweet? The glaze is new as well. It's kind of periwinkle and kind of delicious, don't you think? It was also kind of a mistake (I mixed up two chemicals and had to do some fancy math (totally guessed) to get them right-ish) so chances are good the next batch won't look like this. Bummer, that.


These lovely Art Deco earrings are a new design as well.

These little fawns aren't new but they are always cute, so I thought I would share. :)

Today I will finish up my piece for the Art Bead Scene challenge. I just have some final composition issues to work out. So look for that post either today or tomorrow (I hope). :)

The fairy is very sweet. One of my favourite glazes, which is now used up, is a mistake glaze too. I kinda sorta know what I did. Good luck with your show prep.
