Last weekend our followers reached 300! I wanted to do the happy dance and celebrate!
We hope you have been enjoying our blog so far and we will try to continue to share with you more of our latest work and some fresh and new ideas.
I decided that since our home studio now has a new look that our internet studio (blog) needed one as well. Other than the new color you will notice the sidebar has changed. We didn't get rid of our favorite links but just moved them into a better place. They now have their own page in one of the tabs at the top. I categorized them in different interest groups so they are easier to find. There is room to add a whole lot more which we will be doing over the next while.
I have enjoyed working in our new finished studio this past week. At the moment I'm writing several new tutorials that should be published shortly. I've been also working on some new color palettes for our beads and jewelry. We have the small rondelle spacers in our basic color palette available for sale but we will soon have them available in a larger size as well as in more color choices.
This palette is in the Pantone Fall 2010 colors of Purple Orchid, Lagoon (turquoise), Woodbine, Endive, Golden Glow, Living Coral, Lipstick Red, Chocolate Truffle and Rose Dust. I am in the process of mixing up some of these gorgeous fall color combinations into some of our new bead and jewelry designs.
This is our new jewel-tone color palette of lime green, teal, blue, grape, magenta, orange crush, melon, sunshine yellow and almond.
And here is a sample of some new lentil swirl beads in a combination of the magenta, melon, sunshine yellow and lime green now available for sale in our Etsy shop and ArtFire studio.
