I'm in an Etsy Treasury!

It's always exciting to have one of my items featured in an Etsy Treasury, but it's really exciting when it's an item I've just listed! My bay leaf and gourd garland, featured in this Treasury was just listed yesterday!

By the way, I'm using a new tool to capture Treasury screenshots. You should be able to click on any item shown in the Treasury below and go directly to that item! If you'd like to leave a comment on the Treasury page itself (and I do hope you will!), just click on the Treasury title!

Megan Ellis Lampworked Beads

I wanted to take a moment to share this beautiful necklace with you. No, it's not the least bit primitive, but I'm kinda fond of lampworked beads ... and if you've ever watched them being made, you probably would be too!

In particular, I wanted to mention my friend, Megan Ellis, who created the bead featured on the right side of the picture below. Megan calls this bead "Blue Angel" and says that it was made with glass from her private stash which is hand-carried by a friend from the factory in Italy. You can see more of Megan's creations in her Etsy shop!

This necklace, entitled "Final Frontier" was created by Sarah Kelley of The Beaded Lily for a contest sponsored by Etsy and NASA.
