Deadlines … what I’ve been up to

Time flies, and I just realized that I haven’t shown some eye candy in quite a while. In fact it’s been already a few days since I posted anything in my blog, and you might be wondering what I’ve been up to in the last week.


Besides of our big Fire Diva Customer Appreciation Sale (which is running great and kept me busy with shipping orders and making made-to-order beads), I had two deadlines to submit entries of finished jewelry with my lampwork beads.

One is for the exhibition “The Illusion of the Flame: Creating Wearable Art from the Science of Glass” in Houston’s Center for Contemporary Craft (HCCC).

I’m really excited about this one, because it enables the members of the Northwest chapters of the ISGB (International Society of Glass Beadmakers) to exhibit their beads and jewelry in Houston TX this summer.

I submitted 3 different pieces made with my lampwork beads: 2 bracelets and 1 necklace. Fingers crossed – we’ll learn the results of the judging end of April.

The exhibition runs from June 18 to September 17, 2011.

A second deadline that kept me busy is for the annual Bead Star Magazine contest. Here I’ve submitted one entry in the “glass” subcategory.

I have material for another bracelet, but I feel not brave enough to submit my design – I assume that I wouldn’t have a chance in the “metal” subcategory in any way, given all the uber talented people that participate every year.

Not that I’m very confident in the glass category either LOL, but it’s more in my comfort zone.

At this point I’m not quite sure if I will submit the “metal” piece at all … but I still have some time to ponder over this or even rework my design.

I guess you figured this one out already: The photos here in this post are some teasers of my submitted pieces. Hope you like them!

Don’t forget – there’s only a couple of days to snag up some great deals in our Customer Appreciation Sale! 20% off your entire purchase onmy webpageand in my Etsy shop plus I’m including a special bead gift with every order!
