Ahh, here comes the weekend! I plan on doing nothing but knitting and watching movies. Except I really wanted to make a set of button shaped beads based on this focal I just listed…
Yummy, huh? I love the glowing silver inside it! Only a canes to pull, some silver to cut, and I’ll be all set (as long as my clear comes in today… hmph).
A good glass friend of mine is contemplating selling her torch to pay some bills- this winter has been rough on a lot of artists, and the economy isn’t looking up. We’re all hoping that with tax refunds coming in, people will buy jewelry, in turn, jewelry designers will need beads. Cross your fingers for us. Anyway, our glass forum is begging her not to sell it, and she said it’s amazing how upset we all are about selling a torch and it shows how dedicated we are to our art. LOL… She’s right, but I got to thinking, what would I do if I had to sell mine for the cash? Unlike her, I don’t have a day to day job, so if I really needed the cash, I’d spend all day torching for a week and put some buy it now auctions up, crossing my fingers… I could usually come up with at least a couple of auctions that would sell. But if that didn’t work? I know I’d be crying as I put it up for sale! Vicious cycle- sell the torch to get money, then how do I make more money to buy a new torch? Yep. Conundrum.
So, auctions are up! Yay! Prepare for laziness 😀
