New bird key chains

Well, the last few weeks have been really busy – getting ready for my first Christmas fairs. But now, I have a bit more time and can catch up on my blog posts, which are sadly behind.

I made all sorts of items for my fairs, including turning some of my bird beads into key chains/bag charms. I’m really happy with how they turned out.

I’ve also seen lots of foxes around over the last couple of months – on bags, hats, gloves and even a couple running across the road! So, I thought I would see whether I could make them in glass. I have a few rods of the perfect fox fur colour. Called Adobe, it’s a limited run from CIM. I don’t thinkĀ I’m going to be able to get anymore, but I should be able to make a good number of these with it!

I’m going to be steadily adding some of the items I brought home from the last fair to my Etsy shop. The keyrings are now listed, if you would like to have a look.



Birdy bead

I thought I should start showing some of my work! Let’s start with a bead I made for the Frit Happens Forum challenge. Each month there is a theme challenge and a colour challenge. September’s theme was ‘Birds’.

So here is my little bird:



I was pleased with how he turned out, especially the variations in colour in the blue glass. And even more pleased when my name was pulled out of the draw for the prize – a voucher from Tuffnell Glass. Hmmm, what to buy, what to buy…
