Summer E-book Sale

A Quickie E-book Sale and some other things you might like to know

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!

 

Double E-book Sale

 

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! :-)

Swimming in Silver Glass…

 

…or perhaps the title for this post should be “quickly running out of silver glass”.

Either way, here’s a little peek at what’s new in my Etsy shop this week:

Silver Glass Beads

 

Have a great weekend! :-)

 

New Beads and an E-book Sale

Hi Everyone!

First of all, a little Valentine’s Day treat for e-book lovers: 100 Color Ideas for Glass Beadmakers and 11 Things to do with Goldstone are now only $10 each on Etsy. You can find them in the e-book section in my shop.

The sale ends Monday, February 17 2014. Enjoy!


In the bead department, lately I can’t seem to stop making these big encased focals. Really big (for me at least), with lots of stuff inside.


You can find these, along with some new sets and more, also on Etsy.

Thanks for looking and have a great weekend!
:-)

I’m excited about this one, and I think you’re going to like it!

A special thanks goes out to my wonderful boyfriend Barak, for helping me with the tutorial photography.

Now, please excuse me while I go order some Chinese food and collapse in front of the TV. See you soon! :-)

 

SILVER SECRETS Pre-Order Sale: A New E-book, Coming Soon!

 

The sale has ended! Many thanks to everyone who pre-ordered the e-book!

It is now available for purchase and instant download on my E-book page: http://www.glassbysarah.com/?page_id=476

 

As some of you know, I’ve been working on a new E-book these past couple of weeks. This one was inspired by one of my most popular workshops: Silver Secrets! I will show you how to make three focal beads from the class.

The E-book is almost ready, and I’m just adding a few finishing touches. The deadline I set for myself is Monday, January 20, 2014. Five more days! In the meantime, I thought it would be fun to have a pre-sale.

If you buy your copy before January 20, it’s yours for $16.00 instead of $21.00 – that’s $5.00 off!

You’ll be among the first to receive a copy, before everyone else!

 

Silver Secrets Cover

 

This E-book will include a short introduction on working with glass and silver, lots of tips and tricks (including Hothead tips and general tips for making organic beads with silver), inspiration pages and three full, step-by-step tutorials. The focal beads we’ll be learning to make are complex and each one incorporates several techniques, so you can choose to make them as is, or mix and match to come up with your own creations.

 

The Organic Bead

All the beads in this E-book could fall into the “organic” category, but this one is always named “The Organic Bead” in my workshop. You’ll learn to incorporate silvered ivory into your organic bead, and I’ll share my tips for working with Raku frit.

The Organic Bead

 

The Magic Bead

This bead was named “The Magic Bead” by my students in Moscow back in 2009, and it sort of stuck. I’ll show you how to get an interesting silver glass effect without actually using any silver glass, and we’ll throw in some sparkly goodies, like goldstone frit and silver wire, for good measure.

The Magic Bead

 

The Beach Bead

“Beach Beads” have always been one of my most popular styles. For this one, we’ll learn to layer silver glass and frits, and top everything off with some shiny silver mesh. There will also be some suggestions for different color combinations.

The Beach Bead

 

This E-book will be approximately 50 pages long (maybe more), in PDF format of course.

If making these beads looks like fun to you, you can pre-order your copy today, for only $16.00!
A download link will be sent to your e-mail address as soon as the E-book is ready, by January 20th.
(I will send it to your Paypal e-mail address by default – if you’d like it sent to a different e-mail, please specify so in the “instructions to seller” on Paypal).

 

The sale has ended! Many thanks to everyone who pre-ordered the e-book!

It is now available for purchase and instant download on my E-book page: http://www.glassbysarah.com/?page_id=476
