The Big Reveal...

This will be short but there are still some things to say so I won't skip posting...

Here's a sneak peek at a bunch of my new designs, I'm really just beyond tickled petunia pink by them! They turned out even better than I could have imagined...the challenge will be naming them all and keeping them all straight in my head, especially because they're pretty much all architecturally inspired.

I'm going to do my very best to get what's come out of the kiln up on the website but I'm not sure I'll have time tomorrow. Sadly, my mother in law passed away this afternoon so as you can imagine, there are plenty of other things that take priority over beads for a few days.

The last detail before I go into a bit of a radio silence mode... I'm scheduled to be a sponsor for Art Bead Scene for the month of May. These are my contribution to the goodies that are up for grabs in their giveaway:

Along with the giveaway I'm offering a special discount code so be sure to check out ABS (or make sure you're signed up for my newsletter which really is going to go out right away-there have been technical glitches slowing me down) for the details.

Blog partner peeps, I'm still planning on getting your special items out in the mail to you on Monday so the show will go on.

Other than that, any orders coming in over the next week will have shipping (or production if there are made to order items) delayed until the 10th. Thank you for your patience!


  1. These are so gorgeous ... the colors, the textures! Wow! Someone is going to be a lucky winner at ABS!

  2. I LOVE this - especially the colors.

  3. Oh my Mellisa - hugs to you and your family!
