Hello from the Let Fire Inspire workshop!

You will have noticed a dramatic change to the Let Fire Inspire bead shop on Etsy, with my handmade lampwork glass beads now available individually. Whether you just want one to use as a delightful accent on one of your handcrafted jewellery pieces - or are shopping for a selection to use in a range of projects, or even your own Let-Fire-Inspired collection - you’ll find lots of choice in the shop!

I have sixteen different beads available, split into three collections:

Harlequin - eight colour options
Posy - seven colour options
Night Sky

In order to give you further choice in your designing options, these collections are available in four size ranges:

12-13mm diameter
13-14mm diameter
14-15mm diameter
15-16mm diameter

I am of course still making sets of ‘Specials’ which will appear in the shop from time to time, but the idea behind my ‘core’ Harlequin, Posy and Night Sky collections is that stocks of these beads will continue to be replenished.

‘But these new beads aren’t ‘one-offs’, are they?’
Yes and no - no, because I have worked hard to produce these designs that are replicable, repeatable, and available - but yes they are one-offs, because they’re not factory-farmed, remember: each bead is still made individually at the torch flame, and each is its own little piece of glass art with its own unique characteristics and variations.

Pick and mix to your heart’s content!

I have introduced a new flat rate for shipping, which is £2 inland, £3.50 Europe, £4.00 rest-of-world, regardless of the size and weight of your order.

Do have a look and see what you think. Thanks!

Happy to be happy!

It’s been a little while since I posted, and I thought I’d just have a little muse and write down how things are going this week.

Despite being quite tired from all of my open studio shenanigans (my last Open Studio weekend of the season ended at the weekend) I’m very very excited about some pending projects! I’ll keep you posted!

This week I’m feeling particularly grateful for social media and my online business life. I’d been under the social media radar for quite some time, until a bout of illness in January this year caused me to gently revamp my website from my sickbed (!) and at the same time reintroduce myself to Twitter and Instagram.

The benefits of being back on social media have so far been manifold. I have found out about all sorts of things, like:

  • What a Bullet Journal is

  • How to use the Pomodoro Technique to NAIL tasks

  • How absolutely lovely the online crafting community is

  • Inspiration for colour combinations and patterns can be found in all sorts of unexpected places

  • Low carb granola can be delicious

….and many, many more.

I’ve found out what a hashtag hour is, and have found some absolute beauties! I participate in several - #womaninbiz, #HandmadeHour, #HHlunch, #UkCraftersHour and #CraftBlogClub to name just a few - and have met some incredibly lovely fellow crafters/makers/businessfolk in doing so.

And this week - TA DAAAAAH! - I have started offering my lampwork glass bead and sterling silver jewellery for sale on the fabulous new sales platform www.myCrafty.com. I’m utterly thrilled to be part of this site - have a look here and see what you think!

I’m selling jewellery on myCrafty, and beads on Etsy.

All is good at Let Fire Inspire - how about you?
