Lampwork Bead of the Day, December 30

I can't believe it is almost 2012! Since it has been really overcast here lately, I am wishing for spring and warmth. I thought these lovely floral beads from Sonja at Silver River Glassworks would help warm us all up.

Come and see the other beauties in Sonja's Etsy shop. Happy Almost New Year!

Glass Bead of the Day: Monday, December 26

Today's bead is something that really strikes a chord for many of us, especially since we are just hours away from the most wasteful consumer holidays of the year... This is a recycled Coca Cola Bottle Pendant by Susan Lambert:

This beautiful pendant is made of recycled glass from a Coca Cola bottle, and is actually quite enchanting in addition to being recycled. :)  Susan has an Etsy shop full of good stuff, so please check out Susan Lambert's Etsy Shop.

Today's Bead of the Day is this sweet fish from Susanne at BabsBeadsandDesign on ArtFire. I love the colors in this fish. Violetta is ready and waiting for your jewelry designs. Do you know that you do not need an ArtFire account to buy items there?

Lampwork Bead of the Day: December 21

The festive season is near! Looking into the weekly threads on Etsy and ArtFire you will find that the Divas are probably occupied with a lot of other things than torching and listing. I know I am!

But there's allways time for some eyecandy. AND you have to plan for your festive jewelry! And what says "festive" more than shimmering gold:

Gold Pixie Dust Handmade Lampwork Glass Beads

Imagine those around your neck at New Years Eve!

They are made by Lara Lutrick and can be bought in her Etsy store.

Merry Christmas to you all!
