Yeah for the thaw!

We're finally rid of the icy skating rink that was my street!

I'm now trying to rid myself of the feeling of being a hermit as have hardly ventured out since Christmas.

I have at last cored some beads with the stamped copper bead caps that I've been making and I'm quite pleased with the effect, what do you think?

Happy New Year !

Happy New Year everyone. I've been a bit quiet lately but that's just the season isn't it! Every time you think you've got all the shopping done something else crops up. Hope you all had an excellent Christmas and I hope you all have a hugely satisfying New Year.

I have been inspired by the January sales to have a sort out of all my single/lonely beads. These are beads that are left over from sets, test beads for new glass or techniques, beads that turned out differently from what was expected etc. They've been accumulating for a while so I thought it was time to sort and bag loosely by colour.
