Or should I call them Satan's Sputum... or how about
Frog's Phlegm or Troll Loogies or Crone's Catarrh?
I was experimenting the other day with shiny upon crusty and got this lovely verdigris on grey effect so in honor of Halloween I decided to get a bit more creative in my description.
Anyway, it's always fun to come up with some new stuff.
I've got some variations on colors coming up the pike too.
These sold instantaneously so I went and made some more already.
They are listed currently.
Now I've been creating a hybrid of beads and limpets.
Meet the "blimpets"
They also flew out of the shop rather quickly so you can bet I'll have more coming.
I feel as though I' must be violating some blog protocol by listing before I blog about them but you see I get on these creating and listing blitzes and sometimes don't slow down enough to notify you all.
So I'm kind of going backwards and showing you so that you can see the next run.
'Nother big Whorl bead... full on crusty
And what you've been clamoring for...
Introducing NEW *Crifflets*!
Well you've been clamoring for them in my head anyway.
( "why does she make those criffles so big?" you say... "and why just 5 of them?")
The answer to that question is that I get bored with making the same color after 5 and want to move on and I only had 15 mandrels which was convenient for 3 sets per torch session.
You can't probably tell by the photo but these are way smaller than criffles so you get 8 of them.
They're about 16 mm... a little more than a half inch in diameter
and the holes are a bit smaller than the full size criffles -3mm
Barbecue Grill Lava Crifflets
would go great with boogers I think.
This is my own stash or torch fired enamels for earrings.
Oh yes... I high grade my own supplies... see how I am?
I am seeing that my brightest enamel matchsticks go out of the shop first but you gotta give those subtle enamel guys a chance.
What's not to love about these?
I mean just look at these on your screen!
Hmmm? You know you want them...all denim blue goes with anything-like
And I want to mention a giveaway that Julie is having at Waaay Outwest
Her beads are so satiny, clean and near perfect that my crusties just want to sidle up next to them like a rogue cousin at a cocktail party.
