After four days of torrential rains and a tornado in our county, the sun finally came out yesterday.  I have to admit I'm not prepared for a tornado.  We know how to prepare for hurricanes, but I haven't a clue what to do if a tornado is barreling down my street.  Our family home is safe but many homes in Plantation, Florida were damaged and some destroyed.  I'm praying for you guys!

I was able to go outside yesterday and take some pictures of beads and a necklace I made during all the rain.  Here are some beads I just posted on Etsy.

Last one of these in this color.

Pistachio Green Leaf

Creme Brulee Swirl

Blue Jean Swirl

Sweet Sixteen Swirl Beads

Dark Violet Raku Cones

Ivory Raku Cones

These are new Flower Burst Focal Beads.  These are so much fun to design with.  The first batch I made went to a necklace I made and is shown below.  They're great as a focal or combine several of them or even mix them with other beads.  I think a bracelet with one as a focal would be really cute also.

I know it's no where near Valentines Day but when inspiration comes I just grab it.  These are hand formed and not made with a mold.

We all need a little smile from time to time.

Enjoy your day,

Some new ceramic beads just out of the kiln.  I made more of my little birds since they were so well received last time.  Some new pendants, connectors and toggle.  These are all available on Etsy.

I made this little set in pistachio, aqua, baby blue and antique rose

I made this heart in antique rose also.

Enjoy your evening,

Lots of pictures today!  I've been so busy making, I haven't had much time for sharing with you guys.  There's so many steps to running a small business when you're the sole employee and creator of your products.  I'm not complaining, I love being the boss of "me", but there's no such thing as a 40 hour week when you're self employed.  Is it worth it, definitely!  Here are some goodies I just listed on Etsy.

Had to show you the back of this bead.  The colors are amazing!

Enjoy your day,
