I just pulled together a collection of my faux ivory polymer beads and posted it on flickr. Now you don't have to scroll down my blog to see what kind of beads I make. All are available for sale, please inquire or look for them in my etsy store. Please click on the flickr badge on the top right of this page to access the photos.

One of a kind polymer horse pendant necklace with mosaic background. It sold hours after I listed it on etsy!
I've listed some more polymer beads and pendants on etsy. We are getting past the summer buying doldrums so I will be increasing my sales listings as we march into autumn!

My display at the Fairplay Bead and Fiber Show
This past weekend I sold my handmade polymer beads at the 7th annual Fairplay Bead and Fiber show in Fairplay, Colorado. The foot traffic was steady all day Saturday, with a mix of beaders as well as non-beading tourists looking for gifts to take home. I did pretty well in selling my beads to people who appreciated the organic, vintage look and had good feedback from people.
The weather is fast changing in Fairplay, you always have to have your eye on the sky when at an outdoor event. The weather stayed really nice all day Saturday, and a rainy downpour only happened after the show was over for the day. The attendance dropped off significantly on Sunday as the weather was more threatening, but the good sales on Saturday made the show well worth doing and I hope to be back next year!
