One more fair to go in 2012

After a long and exhausting weekend at a Local Medieval craft fair I am winding down for the festive season to spend some much needed time with my family. I have one last craft fair on 8th December in the Square in Shrewsbury town centre where I will have a fantastic array of jewellery, in particular there are earrings of every colour imaginable in both dichroic and lampwork, necklaces, pendants, bracelets and cuff links.
Wishing you all a happy festive season. X

Crazy season or is it?

Good evening.
After having recovered from a cold and windy day standing outside with my vast array of jewellery I have decided to try and keep up to date with my website. So today I have been painstakingly uploading images of my jewellery onto my aged computer. Keeping up with technology is so expensive and it is painful waiting to see if the image that looks very reasonable on your camera screen is good enough for viewing on the computer. My verdict- they will do for now (the images are far from perfect). Thankfully I can say my jewellery more beautiful in real than on a computer screen.
Here is some of my recent work.

Still Here

Well I'm still here making beads but being a tad too lazy to upload them onto my website (a long story).
Life seems so much more hectic now the children are grown up (and I always thought it should get easier as they came out of their teens) I am working more hours to pay for the ever increasing bills so less time for my passion of creating my glass beads. Saying that I have quite a stash of beads and will be at Stourbridge Bead fair at the end of August in the Bonded Warehouse  on a stall with my beads and jewellery to buy. There will definately be some bargins to be had.
I do hope you can pop by and say hello.
Best wishes

Having Trouble with my Website

I have been beavering away trying to keep to my promise to put new beads on my website, all was going well until I had a transfer critical error message. So the beads are ready but I am not able to list them.
I have a preview for you of the aforementioned beads...

So you can see I have been busy but now I have another challenge, to get my site fixed or create a new site. The trouble is I have an old version of Dreamweaver and an old computer so things aren't looking too good at the moment.
While I am here I also wanted to share with you a piece of storage that I recently bought for my glass rods.  I am so pleased with it and it helps my workspace to look so much less cluttered. I still have some glass in pots but these are ones I am using with each project.

The 70 section storage unit was a custom order from 
it is perfect for storing rods and the arrived so quickly. I painted the outer casing.

First day of the Bank Holiday and it was mostly dry here in Shropshire so I took the opportunity to clean and sort out my Studio. I have extended my work area and got rid of some rubbish (there is plenty more to sort unfortunately) took a two tall shelving units out which were full of clutter, painted an old CD rack ready for new compact shelving and I am awaiting a new awesome glass storage unit. The only trouble is by the end of the day I had run out of steam my helpful hubby put some stuff in the studio and now it looks like I have been burgled. Hopefully tomorrow I will get the chance to sort and do a real tidy up. Then I can get creating again..... :)

Hello Again

Once agian I feel I need to apologise for my absence.Unfortunately working almost full time and family does not allow me to keep up with all the housekeeping both in the home and craft wise. I have been quietly working in the background but of course finding time to update post, website etc has been neglected. I have been working on a few different ideas with my beads which I will share with you when the weathe improves for the photography ( oh and my daughter returns my camera from her visit to Milan). I have made some fused glass pictures ready for an exhibition and I am also in the process of tidying my studio (an impossible task I tell you), How to folk keep their work space so tidy when they are creating, I feel I need an extension to my already fairly large shedio :) My husband is constantly nagging me to tidy my workspace and throw out what I no longer need, but I am sure you will understand that you never know when something you have in your stash will be just the thing you are looking for in a creation...... I'm not very good at being told what to do either..... Oops there's a confession. I am just about to brave this very unforgiving deluge and see that the final firing has to offer. Thank you for popping by. Pam x
