November 2021

Thankful for so many things, so I'm running an Etsy sale for 20% off all listings through Monday the 29th!  
They live in an apartment until they're adopted, and the cats won at tic-tac-toe with an assist from a lion. ;) 


I'm changing back to old school, new listings will appear in my Etsy shop on Sundays.  So many fun beads, and fall is here!  


Dino beads, uh, find a way.


120+ listings in Etsy, no waiting!   It's so fun back in the studio, I appreciate everyone's support.  Finding things in my flame that I haven't in years, like penguins and frogs. :) 


Roses?  Don't mind if I do! 


A few more beads on Etsy, and the return of Testosauruses on Facebook!  

My favorite time of year - I get Twix as a business expense for the photo op, and most of the beads don't have mouths so I get to enjoy it.  Win-win! 

First Fridays have resumed on Etsy - this week it will be the Farmyard, so pigs and cows. 


Etsy has a healthy stock of beads, with many Halloween ones featured.  (Ghost dino, you say?  Click away, he's been one of my favorite designs for years.)  This is part of the crew ready to go trick or treating! 


Another nice gang hanging out on Etsy, with more friends added every Wednesday! 



More beads on Etsy - and quite the collection!  Shragons, cats, aliens, elephants, and so much more!   This is one of my faves, staring at the everlasting stunt quarter.

Everyone's migrated to Etsy now.  Aliens and shragons and smiles, oh my!

As ever, thank you for your support. 


 I'm currently working on moving all listings to Etsy, right here.




We have shragons - my mission to make a rainbow of them has been accomplished, plus extras. 

Some revisions were made to the catalog.  I went back to one image, with a second clickable per item as I think it looks cleaner that way.  Categories received a revamp as well to be more specific. 

Thanks for stopping by!  




First Friday - Ahhhh, it's been a while, hasn't it?  This month we're celebrating the Farmyard collection, all 20% off today.   Sheep, cows, pigs, and more, all located in the Catalog to the left.  

Through July 4th, all flying eyeballs sold will benefit pinstriper "Fat Daddy" Mark Hagstrom and his family.  After that, they'll all be sent directly to him for an in-person benefit.

I believe in shragons. 


Fresh off the mandrel, hot fresh beads just for you!

Of course, the group photo looks like a musical number with competing gangs, reflective sunglasses, and backup dancers...

Also of course, it's been a while so I need to relearn camera settings.  Plus side?  I promise the beads look way better in person.  

When you're a cat, you're a cat all the way...

Torching is again a thing, and I remember how - so grateful! 
I'll be listing beads here as they're made.

That's been a long year.  My New Year's Resolution, which I just made today is:

1. Stop procrastinating.
2. Torch more.  

I hope everyone made it through ok. 



Holiday greetings!  Hoping to find my torch more heading into the new year, with some beads still awaiting adopting here. A vintage picture of some of my faves.  Peace to all!

Tickling the ivories this week, with a bit of blue for color as well.

A few new items today, all clustered together for one photo.  Stay safe, everyone.

Thank you for stopping by to visit; they're all really excited to meet you!

To the torrrrrrch!  Beads are just dancing out of my glass...

March 12, 2020

Local event cancelled due to health issues, as with many other states.  I'll continue doing my introvert beadmaking thing, and will have a variety of lovely flying eyeball beads to list when the catalog goes live before the end of the month.

Change in policy - as I am really, truly bad at special orders, I will no longer be taking them.  I'll take suggestions, but will make and list what I find singing to me in my glass.  Thank you for understanding.

I do love a good bead bouquet...

A bead bouquet to hint at what I've been up to.  The flying eyeballs are slated for a local event, the rest will be updated here before the end of the month.  I'll be sharing more on Facebook - be sure to follow me there for more updates.

Starting with a literal clean slate here.  I'm found my torch again and am working on building stock.  The goal is to start listing here again by the end of the month, with a wide variety of options. 

To everyone who checked in, follows me on Facebook, and enjoys my work - thank you.
