Ta daaaa! Online store! And more pillows...




Yes finally...I have an online store. Totally wrong timing ofcourse. With having to stock up the Bead Shop cabinet and entering into two exhibitions in December, I don't have a lot to offer. But it's a start and if you keep looking in from time to time, you'll see it grow over the next few months.

I'm very impressed with the whole Etsy operation. It's like a worldwide art and craft gallery, all the items in the stores are handcrafted.

One thing I'm noticing on this three year long pillow bead journey of mine is that the more I experiement, the better these get. They're worth clicking on to get a better look at them.
The rust one is going into an exhibition and those divine poipley ones are going in my new etsy shop. Not sure whether to put them in as beads or made into something? What do you reckon? Those pearls look awfully good with them.

wowser...you are right, they just better and better! And I will be patient for the tute I promise :)

as for the poiplie ones, well I think they need the beads with them, strung and then mailed to California!! Subtle eh? They are jaw dropping drool causing beautiful Melly!

I love the colours Mel especially the purple. Looking forward to the tute, but then I'm sure you'll teach me at ArtFest?????

M..mmmm. Mel, they are divine! I've seen pillow beads before, but nothing like yours, they have a dichroic feel to them, just glorious me darlin'.

Thanks so much girls. So good to hear feedback. I've already submiited my Artfest tutes Janis and needed to keep it to polymer and PMC combos so no pillow beads this time. But I can give you a quick demo after class no worries at all, just remind me when the date gets closer to bring my foils and gold leaf.
