Etsy shop, fused glass and bead crochet.
This has been a busy few weeks. You can now get some things from my Etsy shop. I will ship to other locations than what's indicated so far, but I have to figure out yet how to make "everything EU" at least similar, as what I have listed so far is or contains botanical beads and shipping to the EU is easy and shipping to a lot of other places (other than Canada) is next to impossible.
In May I took a fusing class at Hilo Art and Glass Supplies, who are sadly not longer in business. I got myself some glass fusing equipment, not a whole lot, but I think I will do some more glass fusing in the future.
As a member of the Lampwork Etc. community I got a wire crochet tutorial from Hannah Rosner of GoodRiverGallery.
So I did some wire crochet.
Both of these are done with craft wire, so I'm not listing them for sale, but I would part with them. They both contain some of my first lampwork beads, annealed in Eva Anderson-Terada's kiln right after they were made, the first one also containing some clear about 8/0 seed beads, probably of Chinese origin and clear glass druks that I got out of a Ben Franklin "bead soup". The second contains a light yellow to brown matte seed bead mix and garnet beads of various shapes and sizes that were given to me.
