Round Rabbit EXTRA preview!

Porcelain Bee Beads

I'll be updating the Extra shop tomorrow at noon! So here is a preview for you. Since I was so sick last week I didn't get as much made as I had hoped. But I'm very happy with what I did make, so I guess it all evens out in the end. :)

First up is the bees!!! I love how they turned out!!! Yay!!! I stalked the kiln until it was cool enough to get my things out, I was so anxious, I nearly went crazy. And how about that wonderful lavender color on the trio above? My new favorite color. Expect to see it a lot. Hopeful I won't be the only one who loves it, otherwise I will be making a lot of lavender jewelry with the left-overs. ;)

Porcelain Bee Beads

As you can see I left most of them matte with a just a touch of color to bring out the design. They have such a wonderful feel.

This shot gives you an idea of the size. They are nice and chunky. I want to eat them. And just for fun, click HERE to see the very first pair of earrings I made over three years ago with this same bee. Gotta love that pink background. ;)

Porcelain Beads

These are also two-sided beads. They have a wonderful deep texture and are a pretty good size.

Lavender!

Spiral two-sided beads. Also a good size. They would be a great focal.

Porcelain Beads

For some reason I only made one of these. It's large and very fancy. I will have to make more.

Porcelain Beads

These beads remind me of the top of a poppy seed pod. This particular design is one of my personal favorites. I make a lot of earrings with it. It seems to look great no matter what form it takes.

Porcelian Jewelry Components

Square rings. Is that possible... for a square to be a ring? Huh. I'll have to think about that one...

Porcelain Shards

The rest of this week's batch is made up of four different batches of shards. This groups is a little larger than my usual shards and highly sculptural. To me they really look like something you might find from the past. Beautiful.

Porcelain Shards

Arrrr!! I was feeling a little bit pirate when I made this bunch. I might have been wearing an eye patch at the time, I really can't remember.

Porcelain Shards

This group got its texture from a piece of vintage depression glass.

Here is the final batch. Very pretty and floral.

So there you have it! The update will begin at noon right HERE. Hope to see you there!

Oh, beautiful! The bees are so organic looking. My favorites are those sorts of architectural flourish designs, though. I'm such a sap for those. XD Lovely stuff, as always!

I love it when they spell out real words.

Anyways, I am crushed! I missed your update and now everything is sold out. Alas. Next time.
