I think you will forgive me...






At least I hope you will, Wednesday beads will be postposed till Thursday.
Because last night I was busy making a set of 9 beads for my
Bead Giveaway!!!
I already had a giveaway in my bead shop to celebrate my 50th sale, but I wanted to include my blog friends in this celebration as well.

So starting today if you comment on this post you will be entered in the giveaway, only one vote per person. I will announce a winner next Wednesday, November 4th. If you would like to blog about this contest that would be great, but it is not required to enter.

I like these colors etched but I will leave that up to the lucky winner. Don't forget to check in tomorrow for some new beads in the shop, off to the torch.

OOOh, I love them! I hope I win. How do you get your round beads so round - do you use a marble mold? Or a zoozie tool? I have a marble mold, but it doesn't have an indentation for the mandrel, so they don't really end up round!

You are continually my inspiration for what I try to accomplish at the torch. It is very generous to offer a give-a-way.As a beginner I truly appreciate your expertise and gorgeous glass bead work.

Hi Ladies, thank you for all the kind words. Yes Sue I use a graphite marver that looks like a marble mold with an indentation for the mandrel. I think that I purchased it from Arrow Springs.

Ha, I was getting ready to go to your Etsy shop to see if these sold yet when I realized you were GIVING them away! LOVE these beads, and they are in my favorite color combination! I will try to blog about this tonight, but I can't promise anything because I might fall asleep on my keyboard, lol (still adjusting to my new job schedule). Also,
I loved your fall photos in your last post...so inspirational!
