Would you like to see items for sale on this blog?

This necklace was in the Dec/Jan Step by Step Jewelry Magazine!  It was a fun necklace to make. I would like to give it away to someone that enjoys it as much as I do. My question is would you buy components and beads off an Blog if they had a link to Paypal?? I will put the answers in a hat and pick On Jan 6th.

Merry Christmas to all!

New enamel Beads and Links

I took Barbara Lewis enameling class at the Las Vegas Glass Expo. What a fun class. I came home and have been enameling every thing copper. Had a happy accident with some 30ga copper sheet metal. It was too thin for what I wanted to use it for. So I cut triangles and rolled on a mandril and added enamel. What do you think?
It was hard work on the hands as 30ga is stiff. But I think they came out cool. Next I made links for bracelets or necklaces.
Then I used glass decals for my enameled pendants and it work great.

New Rustic Beads

New sets of beads. I love the faceted shape as it's a little larger that I usually make. Got lots of great colors. Copper green was the base in most. Sky blue and opal yellow with z-99 special rose and two other reduction powder and frit make up these cuties. I will tumble etch today and show pictures after. Would love to hear your feedback on the etching.
