Blinging Beads

I finally have produced 3 more sets I just posted on eBay.  A couple of the sets have a bright bling to them.  The other set has a couple of the dichroic beads in it, but also has the golden metallic effect applied to alot of the beads. 
Hopefully this year I won't be such a hard critic on my beads. Because of my perfectionism, I have tossed so many beads out my studio window into the surrounding flower bed. I'll catch my mom on occasion, pilfering through the flower bed picking up my "reject beads". Next thing I find is her wearing them on her necklace. The funny part is I often question why I tossed alot of the beads once I see them strung on a piece of jewelry. Hopefully this year I will ease up on my perfectionism and produce more beads to sale.  Better yet, maybe I will make all perfect beads and won't have to toss any more. Maybe one day.............


Beads, Beads, Beads...........

I have been so preoccupied with getting through Christmas, updating my website, blog, facebook, and so on, that I have finally just got around to posting my first set of beads for the year on eBay, Valentine Bling.  I have a couple other sets to add this weekend.  It is just a matter of taking the pictures and posting them.  It sounds so easy and yet finding the time to do all I have to get done is sometimes overwhelming.  SIGH!!!!!
My first few sets I am posting will all have the dichroic(glitter effect) application that everyone seems to love right now.  I have been told dichroic was originally developed by NASA.  I have yet to actually look up exactly what it was used for by them, but that is on my list of "To Do's".  The type of dichroic I am using is a newer application of the product.  It is alot thicker and brighter then most other dichroic on the market.  I have heard it referred to as "pure dichroic".  Having used the older dichroic applications and now this newer type, I completely understand why they refer it as the "pure dichroic".        

Hopefully this year will I will be able to push myself to make more beads and increase the market of my website.  I will work hard and do my best; and hopefully, I will reap the benefits.  Wish me luck......
