EXTRA Shop Preview - Update Tomorrow!

Tomorrow at noon (EST) I will have an Extra shop update! It was a great week for pieces. I really enjoyed making this batch and playing with glazes. Every time that I make new one-of-a-kind pieces I end up taking away so much and coming up with new ideas that really spark my imagination. I just love that!

First up are these fun stars (above). They are a good size, over an inch in diameter, so they can be used as a focal or a connector. They would be great as a bracelet focal (oh, on a leather cuff!!! Ideas, ideas...).

These pieces are also a decent, large size and have a mess of holes to play around with. When I first made them I imagined them being used with the three holes at the bottom for dangles but then I turned one sideways and realized what a super cool piece that would be! OR flip it the other way with the points hanging down! So many possibilities with this one...

These are some fun, large star focals. Again, many holes for many options.

These might be my most favorite beads that I have ever made EVER! They are unglazed with only black stain rubbed in the cracks and crevasses.

And here is another view. They are so dreamy...

Sweet little rosettes.

More exceptionally cool unglazed scratchy beads.

A Spring themed batch of shards.

Unglazed and cracky rings. Love these!!!

Hands! Kind of creepy. Kind of my kind of thing. :)

A small pile of floral shards.

And finally, some cute little connectors which will be sold in pairs.

Be sure to check the shop tomorrow at noon when I begin listing. I have all my photos ready this time around so it should go a little quicker than the last time. Hope to see you there! :)

Oh my goodness I want at least one of everything, maybe 2 of the ones with the black! I hope I can get a couple pieces tomorrow!

All, good, but I just have to admit that I have a thing for those kinda creepy hands.

Oh, drool! These are to die for!! Maybe I can nab something...

Beautiful work. ^__^

Oh, yeah! And those white and black crackly ones remind me of crinkle cookies. They look delicious. :3

Leslie Gidden said...

Ohhhhhh! I have to get me one of those hands!!! LOVE them Nancy!

Okay, like jamberry song said...the black and whites are mint crinkle cookies from the Panera bread which are so sinfully delicious that I eat one every stinkin' time that I go into that restaurant and I have yet to regret the added thigh girth...nope, not even once...having said that, I'm afraid to buy one of those beads for fear that in a moment of pure mint crinkly desire I might try to take a bite out of it.
I hope whoever purchases those sweet little discs does not feel the way that I do. Well done, Nancy, well done.

Painfully beautiful! I adore the Marie Antoinette before necklace you make. Thinking of getting it for my friend for her birthday, aching to get if for myself as well.
