Jonquil Glimmer Strips:
Seaspray Glimmer Strips:
Wide Open Spaces (borosilicate): (I think these were actually in my POCKET when the great boro bead disaster of 2012 happened. I never keep beads in my pocket, what luck.)
Maybe 2012 was my year for Glimmer Strips… I think I’ve run the whole gamut of opalescent glass in very specific colorways. I’ve accomplished pinks, grass greens, aqua blues, demin blues, and now sea green and yellow… Oh, who am I kidding, there will surely be more eventually, just as surely as the talented boutique glassmakers will continue to come up with new colors I can’t live without. Do you guys remember me saying something like “I don’t need that fancy 104 COE glass when I have boro”? Do you remember that? Pardon me, I was silly to say that. That stuff is completely different AND I get to keep my foils and my bright eye-crossing colors when I use it.
So, about the opaly Czech glass beads I mentioned in the descriptions for the Jonquil and Seaspray Glimmer Strips – the ones that should coordinate nicely with the Glimmer Strips this week, and the ones I’ve made in the past. So that you won’t have to dig too deep (although it might be fun if you have time) check out this Etsy seller, ArteBella Surplus:
She even has them separated by colors so it will be a bit easier to find what you need. Beauty and convenience. A rare find in today’s rat race.
I hope you guys enjoy the beads… I’m off to make a salad to go with dinner, and later, perhaps packing up some beads for mailing tomorrow, wink, wink, nudge, nudge.
Thanks so much for checking in!
