Bunches of butterflies! (and two new glaze colors!)

I've just listed eight sets of butterfly beads in my Extra shop. There are many different colors so there is a lot to choose from. To see examples of pieces made with these little guys click here or here. :)

In other exciting news (at least to me!) I have been working on some new glazes. This week I tested out five batches that I had mixed up last week. Here are two of the colors that I am especially happy with. Above is what I am calling Princess Pink (in honor of my niece, Rachel, who is all about pink princesses).

This is Tangerine! I'm not really an orange kind of gal but I've been getting many requests for it at shows so here it is. I guess this is a big color for autumn. I tend to look mostly dead when I wear orange (and don't even get me started on how I look in yellow!) even though I do love the color.

Let me know what you all think about my new colors!

Oh, I love the pink on the floral beads. It looks like the hibiscus in Hawaii. So pretty!

I've already purchased my butterflies! Glad I am off work this week so I can have fun shopping online during the day! I plan to give a set to my friend who loves butterflies! I love the new glazes too!
