I worked hard this weekend to get a bunch of new beads ready to sell. I took tons of pictures and I'm pretty happy with the way they turned out. When I have a lot of pictures. I can post a lot of beads for sale. My favorite item I listed is the shell set above. This is a replica of a set I made a year ago. I have paired the glass shells with real shells for a very pretty picture. I had a tough time getting a picture of this set. Not quite sure why, but if anyone out there as suggestions for how to photograph etched beads, I'm willing to take pointers.

On ArtFire and Etsy I listed several large hole beads for those Pandora or Trollbead bracelets. I am having a fun time making these, as many lampwork artists are. They take a little more time when made on the large mandrel, but I think they are worth it.

Have you checked out 1000Markets? They have a lovely selling venue and I layout I really like. They only sell finished products there so I like to list my jewelry there, as well as on my website, http://www.laralutrick.com/. My latests pendant necklaces at 1000Markets are inspired by a class I wrote about in January with Michele Goldstein. I took ideas she shared in class and paired them with my New Year's resolution to use brighter colors and I think I have succedeeded. I just love the little pendant I made for this necklace.

One last bead is this "Nebula Bead" from my tutorial in The Glass Bead, the ISGB's magazine. This is made with that technique and turned out very pretty. This bead can be found on my website. This one won't link correctly, so you can find it at
