Hi Everyone! :-) A few things you might like to know:
1. I’m having a quickie double e-book sale right now - Silver Secrets and 100 Color Ideas for Glass Beadmakers are only $10 each on Etsy. You can find them here: http://sarahhornik.etsy.com
This sale ends tomorrow (May 15, 2014). Enjoy!
2. Some of you may have been wondering where all the beads have gone. There have been some changes in my business: I have been selling most of my work on Facebook these past couple of months, so I haven’t been listing much on Etsy. There are a few Facebook groups for bead sales now, and I list my stuff there regularly. Anyone can join these groups, to sell beads or to buy them:
Lampwork Bead Market
Lampwork Beads For Sale
Artisan Lampwork Beads For Sale
I will try to keep my Facebook page updated with what beads I’m selling and where, so you don’t have to go digging through the groups to find them.
There are also a couple of “trunk show” groups, where each artist can sign up for a two-day show. During your show, you get to have the whole group to yourself and post all your work! My next show is coming up next week, May 21-22, in the Artisans Open Market group, so these days I’m working like crazy to make a lot of new beads for the show.
I’ll be having another one during June 4-5 in Glass Open Market.
3. I started my own Facebook group! This one isn’t a sales group – it’s called Lampwork Beadmaking Tips, Techniques and Questions, and I guess the name is pretty self-explanatory – it’s a group for beadmakers of all levels, where we can share techniques, ideas and inspiration, ask questions and get advice. If you’re a beadmaker and you’re on Facebook and you haven’t joined yet, please do! It’s a really fun group and I hope it will become a valuable information resource.
That’s all for today – thanks for reading this far!
