I’ve been in a bead-buying dry spell. Making jewelry is not my main thing anymore, so there’s really no need to stock up the way I used to. You know, like the apocalypse was upon us and the very survival of our species depended entirely on beads.
However, a few weeks ago, I found an artist who makes ceramic components for jewelry. Just look at these long, glazed, dangle things. I’m so freaking obsessed with them. So unique, so earthy, so modern. I’m seeing one on a long necklace with a sea glass bead and a beach pebble.
They’re made by Petra Carpreau, an artist from the UK, and her shop is ScorchedEarthonEtsy.
I had to order a pair. Or two. You know, to justify the overseas shipping cost.
p.s. the 30 day challenge is going swimmingly. Days 5-9 this week, hooray! Want to see new beads? Check in every day this week for a new Etsy listing! Click here to see what’s new in my store, or use the ‘buy beads’ link at the top of the page.
