Doing it all

This has been such a strange week.  We've just completed a large bead order which took about 4 weeks from start to finish, wet clay to glazed bead.  What is so strange about it, is that it took me a whole 4 days to sort, count, string, pack, wrap and photograph the beads.  I was so relieved this morning when I finally handed over the large, heavy box to my local post office staff member and now I'm holding thumbs that it will reach its destination safely.  I should add packer, driver, photographer and more to my already long job description - bead artist, jewellery maker, ceramic artist, etc.  Oh, and lets not forget the all important one - marketing agent/sales person of Earth Butter Beads.

The order was for a large number of colour co-ordinated bead sets such as these:

Black, Red, Skye Blue, Yellow bead sets

Black, Red, White bead sets

Black, Brown, Terracotta, Animal Print bead sets

Pink, Purple, Lavender, White bead sets

Turquoise, Aqua, White, Black Raku bead sets

Blue, Red, White bead sets

Yellow, Green, White bead sets

Orange, Yellow, White bead sets

I like them all but I especially like the Yellow, Green and White bead sets.  Which is your favourite?  Let me know by leaving a comment below and you'll stand a chance to win a bead set.  We'll choose a random winner by the end of next week and will let you know here on the blog.  Thanks for visiting!

  2. I agree they are all beautiful! My favorites are the top sets of black, red, skye blue and yellow. So happy!

  3. The skye blue in the top set has to be my very favorite, but I have many close second-favorites. They are so yummy--all of them!
