The Japanese elves we have made have been very populair from the start. So Iris came up with some new designs for them wearing colourful kimono's.
In 2019 we started on a book to showcase the lampwork art Iris makes. That book is delayed sadly, but we are still working on it. We wanted to make some special glass work an decors for the book. And that got me using background decor more often for our weekly series of glass beads as well. A little look behind the scenes 😉
They are finished; Rainforest scene glass bead set, Meadow scene glass bead set and a Halloween set. All except the bases made out of glass.
Today we are busy finishing three exclusive sets. Only one will be made of each. We've made a Rainforest Elf set with Toucan, Palm Weevil, Hercules beetle and flowers. Then a Meadow Elf set with Hoopoe and flowers. And also a set with a Witch, Crow and Pumpkins.
This week we finished two special glass bead sets. The first "Encounter with Hedgehogs". The second "A Resting Place for the Night" is the largest glass bead set we made untill now and is an exclusive set.
In a short while we will list this new series of glass bead Elves and Fairies in our Etsy shop.
Busy finishing a special, one time only, glass beads display set. The set includes three Glass Bead Elves and a Lantern, which can be taken from the base. Fixed to the display are a Barn Owl, a European Badger, two Mice and two Fly Agarics.
A little update. Last week I made these Fairies and Elves amongst others.
A little preview of what we are going to list in our Etsy shop tomorrow
Many of our customers make jewelry themselves. So we thought about and Iris set out making glass bead sets with complementary beads to the Fairy and Elf designs.
