You have no idea…

how long it takes to assemble beading kits unless you’ve done it.  Coordinating the color and types of beads, crystals, pearls, etc., required for a specific pattern, counting and/or weighing all the beads, packaging them, printing and attaching labels, and placing all those lovely beads in their little labeled bags on presentation cards takes hour upon hour!     I offer several colorways for each pattern and will honor special color requests so I usually assemble kits as orders are placed.  And since I like to ship orders ASAP, other works are relegated to the “back-burner” so to speak.  It has been a very busy week indeed!  I’ve been updating my Etsy shop as well.  In addition to beading kits and jewelry, I am now offering patterns without kits for beaders who have their own bead stash, but want to make one of my designs.  The “Bollywood Bling” ruffle cuff has been a huge success and I’m eager to start on another new beaded design that has been floating around in my head.  I also need to get back to my workbench and complete a metal clay piece that has been languishing in a half-finished state for longer than I care to think about.  Once again I feel the need to either clone myself or find elves to pitch in!
