Big Round Rabbit news!

There are some big changes in store for Round Rabbit. As of right now I will no longer be making art beads and jewelry components. The bottom line is that I am burned out. I am uninspired. I am tired of beads and components. My heart is not in the jewelry world right now. So in an effort to revive my muse and help me to enjoy my job I am making some changes. 

First to go is all the beads and components. Right now in the shop I have marked down all of them and have added quite a few. As I clean out my studio and prepare to move (new house, new studio...soon!) I will occasionally be listing more bargain beads and components but for now this is what I have. If you see something you like I recommend that you get it because I will not be making any of it again. 

What will I be making? Lots of other things!! I have big plans for many things, some of them aimed at the fiber world. As some of you know for several years my love of all things wool, yarn and knitting has occupied my heart and time. So I will be expanding my button production (think glazed-to-order) and making some knitting and spinning related products. I am also itching to make some functional pottery once again. It has been years since I have made anything bigger than a quarter and that needs to change. There will be cups and mugs and shot glasses in the future. There will be fun things like coasters and magnets and small pots for succulents. Lots and lots of things. And guess what? I am going to ENJOY making them! 

What will stay? My finished jewelry. I have no plans to stop making beads and components for my own use and I look forward to getting back into more jewelry design, which is where I started in the first place. 

Thank you, thank you to those of you who have stuck with me all these years! Some of you have been purchasing beads from me from the very first moment I started making them and proceeded to purchase from me pretty much every single update. That is amazing and I can't thank you enough. I hope I can continue to make things that will inspire and bring joy not only for myself but for all of you as well. :)

The day: Friday, April 1th, 2016
The start time: 12:00 PM EST


 Lots of pretty things in this update! But first I wanted to encourage everyone (if you aren't already) to follow me on Instagram. FaceBook just isn't what it used to be in the way traffic and holding people's attention so I have been spending most of my time over on Instagram. You can find me there as RoundRabbit. :)


First up are the sweet little floral shank buttons shown above. It doesn't get much springier than that!




 This is an older design that I haven't made it quite a while. The Chandelier Pendant.




 Another old favorite. The Porcelain Cut Glass Pendant.



 Happy Flower Pendants!




It's been several years since I last made the butterfly bracelet pairs. These were featured in a jewelry making magazine years ago and you can see one of the bracelets I made with them HERE

My next update is TOMORROW:
