thumb print for my beads



This week you'll see the first of my "signed" beads. I know it means a lot to collectors to have their beads signed by the artist. Personally, I don't care much either way, and I don't like the way a signature in glass will often muck up a killer bead design. But I've been chewing this over for years now, and the silver end caps seem to have solved the problem... at least for the beads that are silver lined.

I have a tiny logo stamp that just fits on the larger caps, and almost fits the small ones. You have to look real close, but you can see the little heart with wings. It doesn't interfere with the look of the beads, so I'm pleased. And for those who care, it's a hint of proof that it's a gen-you-wine Kim Bead. Like a thumb print, it says I was there.

I've never been much for logos and branding, but this is really cool! I can hardly wait to get my beads & see it!

That's a really nice idea Kim, and such a good place to add it !

Hmm, maybe I should get one of those beads... ;+)))) Kidding aside, it looks good, not too obvious, classy.
