Creative on demand

Being creative on demand can be a little challenging it is not how my brain works, but I am still having fun in the studio. Above is an example of some pendants I have been making, I have had this 1 1/4 " bead press for years and never used it. It was a little intimidating it takes a whole rod of glass just for the base, and each one takes about 45 minutes to make. I have made these with a flat back, the press gives me that option, I think it is a nice feature to have the pendant lie nice and flat. In August after my show, conference, and workshops I will be offering some of these in the shop.

I am also trying something new with my shipping, since my volume of orders has increased (thank you, thank you, thank you) I will be shipping only on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. So if you place an order on Friday it will not be mailed until Monday, etc, etc, etc. If you are on a deadline and you need your order fast, just send me a message via etsy and I will be happy to get it in the mail ASAP.

On Friday bright and early I will be heading down to Yale to pick up Natalie and I will not be back until Sunday the 18th. So since I am going out of town on Friday my last shipping day this week will be Wednesday, any orders made after Wednesday morning will be mailed on Monday.

I will try to list some enamel in the shop before I leave Friday. Thanks for your support everyone.

Love the new beads - that first one in particular because of the great color combo!

I have trouble with that "on demand" thing, too. Glad to know I'm not alone!
