I never had a chance to share this before – life has been so very busy. Back in September, a very dear friend of mine got married. Her wedding theme was Hawaii as her and her husband had some special memories there and were going back on their honeymoon. She wanted me to come up with something simple and pretty for her bridesmaids, flower girls, and herself. We found some lovely charms online, some were personalized for each member of the bridal party, and we also got some Hawaiian style flowers and pretty flower beads to accent. We did bracelets for the flower girls & daughter of the bride, necklaces and bracelets for the bridesmaids and maid of honor, and of course the bride herself.
Here’s me with the beautiful bride!
Then we ended up getting inspired to do matching pieces for the mother of the groom and bride.
Finally, for one of my friend’s older daughters who is a little bit less girly than the rest of the group (and plays the guitar), I did a “friendship bracelet” style piece in matching colours to what everybody else was wearing, with a guitar charm as an addition instead of a flower.
I think this is the last of the new colours. Frantz has some of the 2015 colours in stock now!
CiM Golden Rod
CiM Loch Ness
Here are some more of the new CiM colours – out later this month I think? I only had a small amount of each to play with and am looking forward to getting my hands on more!
CiM French Grey
The new colours are (almost?) out from Creation is Messy! I know that Frantz should have them all in stock by mid/late February. I was lucky enough to get my hands on them a little early so here are some previews. Definitely some of these that I will be adding to my regular lineup. Are there any here that you would like to see more of? More photos coming soon as I still have quite a few rods to try out 🙂 My favorites so far are Aegean, Frozen, Duck Egg, Tortoise, Nectar, and Pollen.
And look at how pretty “Tortoise” etches…

Christmas time is coming 🙂 And it’s Black Friday this week. Not that we really do that in Canada but, well, we sort of do. I’m having a big sale in my main Etsy store to clear out some stock and make a few extra bucks for Christmas shopping. This will only apply to ready to ship items and not custom orders, and only my shop at http://lampworkbyamy.etsy.com/ These are some crazy good prices though and I have a lot in stock, so please pop on over starting at midnight tonight (12am Friday morning) and will go until Sunday at 11pm (both PST). I’m using Etsy on Sale so the prices will be automatically adjusted when the sale starts – you won’t need a promo code or anything. Hope you enjoy and Happy Holidays!
I’ve been doing a lot of made to order work lately and the result is… orphan city! I usually make at least a few extra beads for every set that I sell made to order – I select the best/most matching ones and that’s what gets shipped out. But then I have so many leftovers, which is great because I know there are lots of you out there who aren’t as picky about exact matching shapes/sizes and colours, and who love an awesome deal. This is really unbelievable value.
This is one of my biggest and best orphan lots to date I think. Loads of matching beads here, tons of spacers, and great variety. Mostly 1/16″ hole size. Come grab them before they’re gone 🙂
