I still have some awesome beads left! Find them in my shop

update on my update

Wednesday, April 9, 2014

I feel like I need to apologize a million times. The bead making is a sllllllooooowwww process these days. One word: Juniper. So here is where I am at:

Firing # 1 (of 2) is finished. The sneak peek pictures are from this firing. I separated the batch into two firings to 1.) avoid a circus in loading beads and 2.) to test some new glaze combos. I free glazed...layers of different glazes with not as much planning as usual. This resulted in some amazing new colors (and wayyyy ugly ones too). I tested first so I wouldn't ruin my whole batch!

I still have more glazing and a final firing to do (add in time for making sets/ photographing/listing). I am hoping to have it finished within the next 1-2 weeks. I don't have a specific date/ time yet- but will keep FB updated! If enough people are interested in an email reminder before the update, I can do that too.

**PLEASE NOTE**
I won't be doing any sales/ reserves before the shop update. I just don't have the time to check emails/ fb messages, etc. etc. and set them aside. This is a change in how I have operated in the past and a reflection of my new time constraints. Thanks for understanding!

Last bit of important info...I am hoping to do my shop update at my new website (instead of Etsy). I am moving away from my portfolio website to one that has a shop. Tax time is depressing because I add up my yearly etsy fees. Since I have a customer base now, I am hoping I can get away with moving away from Etsy (not entirely but some). IF my new site is done in time, that is where this shop update will take place. Stay tuned!
