I’m coming back!

Time to get back at the retail side of my business! Next week I plan to start listing pieces again. I have so much stock… it’s time to get some of it out of here!

I’m also going to bring back Glass Guess… so stay tuned! See you the week of 10/17!!


Moving to Facebook…

Nancy Sells Glass Splat Pendant

I give up!! 😉 I just can’t seem to keep this blog going. But I am having a lot of fun keeping everyone up to date over at my Fan Page on Facebook. So if you’d like to keep up with my bead/jewelry life come join me!

Hope to see you there soon!

A New Style…

Nancy Sells Glass Hollow Nuggets

I’m feeling a new style coming on! One of the necklaces I made to wear at the ISGB Gathering got a lot of positive reaction this year. I like to make beads with Check Glass from my buddies John Hurlbert and Jan Burrows to show people just how cool their colors are. So I thought it would be fun to make beads with no surface decorations to showcase the fun, bright colors. But I wanted to do something different to make them more interesting. Hence my nugget style hollows! It’s fun to push the glass around and see how many facets I can get on one bead. I think I’ll be making more of these soon… 😉

Too Little Time…


Only a couple days till I leave for the ISGB Gathering in Miami. And I’m beginning to prioritize. I just might not have all new jewelry to wear this year!! 😮 But the pieces I’ve finished are pretty fun so I’m just going to have to live with it this time.

As I was saying in my last Watch Me Create post, I have a hard time fitting everything in during the summer. Living only 1/2 hour from Lake Michigan and owning a sailboat create diversions that are hard to ignore!

When I get home I need to start focusing on preparing for the St. James Court Art Show in Louisville and our own West Michigan Bead Expo. I’ll be back with sneak peeks at what I’m up to then…

My Etsy Shop is Open!!

Nancy Sells Glass Yellow Orange Noodles

I finally did it! After months of procrastination (see my post on Watch Me Create), I finally had time to get some of my jewelry listed over on Etsy. I’m still a little too sore to get on our boat. So when Dave and friends headed over to the lake, I headed out to the backyard and started taking pictures!

The result is some earrings, a couple pendants and one of my Treasure necklaces ready and waiting for new homes in my Etsy store! I’m going to try to  keep updating it every couple days and will give you the heads up here first.

It sure feels good to follow through on one of my resolutions…  And to think, it’s only June! Who knows what else I’ll get done this year… 😉

Nancy Sells Glass Autumn Dsk! Dsk! Dsk! Earrings

Can’t Stop Making ’em!

1 Garden Dsk's

I actually kept my promise and took pictures of the rest of the jewelry I”m taking over to the Bead & Button show later today. This first set is my Garden Dsk! set. It was inspired by a funky bohemian style top I bought a couple months ago. It was driving me crazy not having something to wear with it. Now I’m all set! 😉

Next is a shot of the actual necklace I made with the Fiesta colored beads. I think it’s probably my favorite set this summer. The colors are so bright and happy!

And finally, here’s the bracelet I made to coordinate with my Red Tentacle Necklace…

Time to start packing! I can hardly wait to meet up with all my buddies at B&B!! See you when I get home…


Otherwise known as a work in progress! 😉 Here’s one I’ve been working on this week. I’ve been having a heck of a time getting the hollows to match up. Sometimes I can do them with my eyes closed… sometimes not! I got the idea for this color combination from the swimming suit I bought this spring. I swear I get some of my favorite jewelry ideas from the swimming suits I’ve had over the last few years!

Short and sweet today ~ I have work to do!
