My webshop

This Monday I launched my webshop. You're welcome to visit it at Babs Beads & Design.

I'm aiming at two editions - one in swedish and one in english - but not for a while. In the meantime I use both languages in the shop. As soon as I get time I will translate the other pages as well.

I will also put more and jewellery in the shop.

This is a bed i made for a necklace in a competition. The theme was Aurora Borealis.
It's made of black Vetro with lines and dots of Reischenbasch Irirs Bkue. The dots are covered with raised dots of Vetro Clear.

Finally some pictures

Last week we had some snow and almost sunshine so I took a few beads and my camera and went out. Here are some of the results.

First, I called this "River", but then someone pointed out to me that it reminds of the swedish alps ("fjällen"), and that's more accurate. Effetre Dark Ivor, Vetrofond black stringer, SIS and Effetre Turquoise.

Nosferatu was here.
Vetro black, dark ivory, SIS and some striking yellow and red.

Another Body and soul.
This one is better than the last one, I think.

Raspberry chocolate
I'm especially fond of the raised dots wich in some angels show the raspberry red and in other angels don't.
