Fire Divas Gossip 11/7

The Fire Divas have a lot on their plates this week (including birthday cake!). With the holiday season upon us, beads are headed to shows and galleries, and the Divas are keeping busy and focused as always. Let's see what they're up to . . .

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Susan!!! Celebrate her big day with a special sale ~ get all the details at Susan Lambert.

Kathleen's beads are on the move! They're jet-setting to galleries and shows, so find out where you can see them at Ugly Duckling Beads.

It's not just fabulous critters climbing out of Patrice's kiln. This week she's got some amazing special symbols, so be sure to check them all out at Shepherd Creations.

There is a LOT going on over at Icarus Beads. She's showing newbies an essential lampworking tool, filling up the big-hole bead section of her shop, announcing giveaway winners, choosing glass colors to go with spring trends and preparing for the holiday rush. Whew!

You have to check out Amy's Glass Blog to see what other Etsy team she's on - it's very exclusive, and the teammates are having a giveaway a week until Christmas. Amy is also the Fire Diva of the Month, so get to know her better here.

Murrini Monday is back at Maybeads, and I've even brought back Therapy Thursdays, and added Fire Diva Fridays. On Tuesday, I tracked down some recently sold beads and answer the question "Where are They Now?"

Lori is diving head first into Fall, and along with drinking lots of hot cocoa she's adding some new elements to her acorn beads. You'll have to head to Ashlyn Design to see these beauties, as well as find out what's on Lori's "to do" list.

Thinking of setting up your own lampwork studio? Head to lajewelrydesigns for a complete list of everything you'll need. And Lea, along with Lara from Lutrick, is showing that every penny counts when it comes to raising money to donate to breast cancer foundations.

Holly is vowing to take time to celebrate this holiday season. So be sure to stop by Holly's Folly Beads to find out what exactly she'll be celebrating, and how.

Theresa is taming an arthropod over at Tease Beads. You don't believe me? See for yourself!

Clare has got new beads, sale beads, and now a De-stash Mountain! Hurry over to Beads by Clare Scott before they are all gone!

Ever wonder what goes in to pricing bead sets? Believe me, it's not easy, and Laurie of Lampwork Glass Beads - Playing With Fire is explaining how it's done. And that's good news for you, because that means she now has bead sets in her shop.

Are you a tea drinker? Then join Ema from Ema K Designs as she enjoys her new handmade tea mug. Ahhhhh.

Have a wonderful week!


  1. I want to add... an extra special HAPPY BIRTHDAY to the Diva's biggest "gossip girl," Ms. Lauren a/k/a Maybeads!

    Happy Birthday hon!!!
