Working on new fall designs and bringing back some of my old fall favorites. I will have a finished fall sneak peek ready in just a few days! Here are some of the ones that will probably be included in the fall collection!
Chunky acorn charms and pumpkin beads
Some of the pumpkins will have jack-o-lantern faces :)
New bee pendants and connectors (also bee bead sets-which can be seen in an earlier blog post)
I will be bringing back my leaf pile design in pendants/connectors.
Also on the way will be crows, rustic leaves, grungy keyholes, spider webs, acorn pendants and a whole lot of other fall goodness! Hopefully by the time I need to start cranking these out, my new kiln will be up and running- I'm hoping to get it ordered this week!
I love churning out new designs- they sit in my sketchbook for months before coming to life in clay. Lately, however, it seems like I've been able to spend less time working in my studio, coming up with and making new designs. I feel like I've spent the last year "scrambling". Scrambling to get ready for shows, scrambling to get orders out the door...you get the idea. I've been contemplating making a big life move- quitting my part-time job and making bead making my full time gig. The thought of that is exciting and terrifying....I'm losing sleep over this decision. I know some of you have been in my shoes- any words of wisdom to pass on? I could sure use some help! I've spent the last couple weeks reading etsy's "quit your day job" series to get some courage and advice. Thanks for your insight- always means so much to me!
