Art festivals are over for this season. But good news is reopening Etsy store for getting a lot of question about selling online. Please give me couple of days to upload all pictures and write some descriptions.
For most recent updates please find Alice's bead madness on the Facebook.
Enjoy beautiful fall weather, at least is great here in Georgia :-)
Past few months were really busy with work, traveling to Europe and also getting ready to start attending on artists markets. Hopefully I'll have more time now to update blog and post new pictures. Tubes of beads and cabochon are still on my table, just love working with colors. But I have also learned new technique that is called Tiffany. This technique is actually used for joining glass and making beautiful windows or ornaments
( Wikipedia glasswork ) and can be also used for making jewelry. Jewelry is made of lead free tin (97%tin and 3%silver). I was really excited to lean something new and now I struggle between beads and playing with tin :-)
Green jasper cabochon, black seed beads sprinkled with metallic iris
green seed beads and emerald fire polished beads are used for this

that is glued and sew to ultrasuede backing) 3,5 x 2,7
Neck chain is 46cm long ended with gunmetal claps.
