It’s The Glass Slipper’s Birthday!

This blog is two years old today!

From the statistics:
You have a total of 196 entries with a total word count of
72,430 words.
You have 1,185 comments.

Wow. That is a lot of words.

I was going to write a sappy paragraph about how much this blog and its readers mean to me – but to tell you the truth, time is running out (6 more days till Australia! Are we there yet?) – and I’d much rather be making beads right now. I’ll just say, this blog and its readers mean a whole lot to me, so let’s celebrate!

Thanks to everyone for playing!

Why, what have we here?

Oh, look! It’s a little bag, and it’s full of murrini chips!

Let’s take a closer look at what’s inside:

Yes! It’s a “sample pack” of (almost) every type of murrini I’ve made over the past month,
and it could be yours!
The chips are all made of COE-104 glass – mainly Effetre.

All you have to do is… guess how many murrini chips are in the bag!
The bag is 70x40mm, and I stuffed in as many chips as I could.

The person who guesses the closest to the actual number, gets ALL the murrini!
Yes. I actually counted them, as if I have nothing better to do.

The Rules:

  • You only get one guess. (No cheating! )

  • You must place your guess by commenting to this post. Emailing me or commenting on the photos elsewhere doesn’t count. I will keep all the comments hidden until the end of the game!
  • The game ends Saturday (June 7) at 23:59, Israel time.
  • In case of a tie, I will distribute the chips evenly between the winners.
  • By placing your guess, you agree to the following if you win:

  1. The murrini chips, as long as they’re in chip form, are for your own use only. You may not sell, trade, give away or otherwise distribute them without my explicit permission.
  2. Other than that – you may use (or not use) the chips in any way you like! However, if you use them as a substantial design element in beads, jewelry or other glass/non-glass objects you plan on selling or displaying online, I would like to be credited.

Fair enough?

Good! Then it’s guessing time!

Okay, you can have one more peek.

Have a great weekend!

Thanks to everyone for playing!

    My guess is……153

    By the way, I think you are a great artist! Not only do you make heavenly beads, teasing out colours and shapes that (at least for a 3 month old newbie) seems spirited; you are a fantastic writer, and I imagine you would be a fantastic sitcom author if ever you decided to take on a hobby…

    I wish you all the best luck in the world with your life choices, the world needs people like yourself!!

    PS: I am not a mad stalker or lesbian with a crush…and the above “flattery” is not an attempt at winning your beautiful millefiori (I’d be too scared to use them anyway)…just a mundane scientist turned mum and housewife who stumbled upon beadmaking after a few years of silver work and fusing :-)

    I’m cutting it close to the line timewise, but I humbly submit my guess of 256 pieces of lovely handmade murini. Am I close? Have fun teaching your classes next week, I so badly wish I could afford to go see you there!

  209. Chris Gould

    hi Sarah
    not long to go – you must be getting very excited, I know I would be, only downside, the long flight – still Oz sounds so amazing it will be worth it. I love the murrini competition and even tho I am not a beadmaker I would still love to just have them!! I have a tiny jar just the right size (I think)to put them in. I am probably way out but my quess is 218. This number was arrived at scientifically by putting the tiniest beads & other tiny “things” I could find into a bag the same size as yours(well, almost). (I also have nothing else to do!!)
    Anyway – good luck to me and safe journey to you. I am looking forward to seeing the photos.
    take care :)

  210. Ginger Black

    Fair enough. Have fun in Australia!
    My guess is 167.

    Hallo Sarah,
    I´m a fan of your beads. I come from Vienna and a half year ago I went in pension. At the farewell party my colleagues made me a great present: 2 “Sarah-Beads”. They knew, that I admire your work. I am very proud of them. This was the point I began to make beads for myself (I´m a real beginner :-))
    And I would be very proud to win your murrinis. Now I guess: there are 210 pieces.
    Have a great time in australia and
    good luck

  222. Sarah
