New Toy!

I haven't had time to do much in the way of bead making lately, and anyway my muse seems to have taken a little time off! I did get some nice shots with my new camera though, so I thought I would share them with you - who knows, maybe they'll inspire you?!

My website has launched!

Oh dear, it's been a while again hasn't it? I do find I forget to post, which is very bad of me, I'll try and get back into the habit :-D
So, what news? Well, the most exciting news is that has gone live! I'm currently selling jewellery that I have made using my own lampwork beads, and, even more exciting perhaps, is now the UK home of Val Cox frit! I sell the Ample Sample size, and I also have some stock of the brand new sampler sets, and Vals wonderful Frit Secrets book, signed by the author. Have a peek!
I've also started a new group on Flickr, We Love Val Cox frit! is open for anyone to join, hopefully there will be lots of gorgeous fritty beads added soon :-)
Here's a few of the beads I have been working on lately, I know you love the eye candy!

Hard work and a pressie for me!

It has been quite a challenging time recently, work has bee really stressful, and ther is more stress to come! I am also in the middle of creating my new website, watch this space for news on the launch date, I'm hoping to have something very exciting to share with you!
Why is it that listings take so long? And getting descent photos at this time of year is nigh on impossible, then you have to crop and edit and compress etc, nobody told me it would be such hard work! I've hardly made anything over the last couple of weeks!

Anyway, I did find a little time, and this necklace was partly planned, so I finished it with a new bead I made a couple of weekends ago. I made it to sell, honest I did! But when I saw it finished on the bust, well, I decided I couldn't bear to part with it! So here's a little present, just for me!

Doesn't time fly?....

I am shocked and dismayed at how long it has been since I posted here, so I hope to make it up to you by treating you to some new eye candy!
After a difficult end to 2010, and even with an uncertain future ahead, I have found the time and inspiration to make a few new things.
The weather here isn't really conducive to taking great photos, so it will be a while before you see these items popping up in my Etsy store....... just think of this as a sneak preview of things to come!!
