Tiny Kite Dangles

The new Tiny Kite Dangles are now available in 8 colors at .

Even for me these are small, measuring about 8mm each side. I gotta say, they are delightful to see and hold in person.  Let me know if you use them in a finished product so I can post a link to your site.  Thanks for stopping by!

The Art Bead Love Tour

Super excited to see Lori Anderson's blog post about The Art Bead Love Tour.  It was a thrill to see one of my blue almond shaped beads on the necklace as is arrived to Lori (that she decided to removed and keep) and an Elaine Ray diamond bezel pendant that she is adding to the necklace.  Here is what Lori said about The Art Bead Love Tour:  The Art Bead Love Tour is an ongoing project to spread the love of handmade to new and exciting places. It’s a way to reach people who may have never stumbled upon your blog on their own, and give them a chance to share the love of handmade. A chain was chosen to link beads as a symbol of how this project links us all together~ in our unity to stand behind handmade.

Go to Lori's blog for a chance to be included in the fun while getting a eyeful of beautiful art beads.  Enjoy!

It worked!  You can use a Mason or Ball jar with the blender.  My blender is an Oster, so I don't know if all benders work, but this did great.  I tried several different sized jars, even down to a small jam jar size.  This was something I originally saw on Pinterest on Swank Coffee's board.  

Let me know what you have tried from pins on Pinterest that worked out for you.
