A few new items listed today

I have finally gotten around to listing some totally new items in my etsy store today. It's been a while because I just haven't been happy with the pictures I have been taking lately. I want the pictures to be the best, but I just feel like I have been falling short lately.

Well first I'm listing a great multi-strand bracelet. I received these lovely vintage beads from a family friend. I just think they are so beautiful, the way they change color when the light hits them. I paired them with some silver lined glass bugle beads and finished it off with a beautiful sterling silver toggle clasp. I really like this bracelet, all 15 strands of beads. You can check it out in my etsy store.

I also have a lot of lampwork beads that need to go up in my store. I have the most difficulty trying to photograph these, so I usually just give up and bring them to shows. But I have a couple really lovely glass beads today.

First is my Bloody Mary's All Around bead, I really love this bead. It's fun and funky. It's about 3/4 of an inch tall, so would make a great little focal bead. (just ignore the cat hair on the bead :D).

I also have an other bead that I am really proud of, I call it Spring in the Country. I'm just so happy how it turned out. It looks like a real bead, not some lop-sided horrific abomination that comes out of the kiln all too often.

This bead is a little over 7/8 of an inch in height.

Victoria, love the bracelet. I also think your lampwork beads are really nice.

I love the bracelet. I think it would make an awesome choker necklace, if it was just a bit bigger.

All very pretty. I especially like your Spring in the Country bead. I have some vintage seed beads too that need to be used. I try using them in weaving sometimes but they are too irregular for a lot of stitches. I think you have the right idea in stringing them in multiple strands. They really make a statement.

That bracelet is so beautiful and I love the lampwork beads! I think your pictures are great, although I do understand your frustration. I can never get my pictures to turn out just right!

Thank you all for your kind words.

I did make a bracelet with the beads, as a thank you gift, in circular ndeble. It actually looked pretty cool, but yeah, they really can't be used for weaving, I've tried :(

I wanted to make a necklace (I love multistrand necklaces), but wasn't sure if I had enough beads! But boy would it be pretty.

Those beads that you are making are gorgeous. I hope you keep listing them on Etsy so that I can look forward to buying some!

Thank you so much everyone.

Thank you waterrose. I'm so new to blogging, I never know if I'm doing it right :D
