I've been dropping hints lately about a catalog of Troll-style Beads I'm working on for my website. It's a big project that will actually save me a lot of time once it's all finished. The plan is to have a nice group of Bracelet Beads that will be available all the time. I'll try to keep a few of each in stock, and make more as they're sold. I'll also have some one-of-a-kind beads, as well as the bigger focal beads that will also be one-and-only's. The beauty of the catalog is that I'll only need to photograph and describe these beads once. That will save me buckets of time from week to week, which pleases me quite a lot. And it should please some of you too, because it also means I can reduce the prices a bit. Always lookin' for that win/win situation!
So I'm spending most of my time right now making the inventory for the starter catalog. I'll add to it as I go along, but I want a nice bunch of beads to choose from when I launch it. I think I can have things ready to go by early next week, and if you're on my mailing list, of course I'll keep you posted! Till then, here's a picture of some of the beads I have so far. I have to say, it's a lot of fun to have this many beads at one time to play with. You'd think I'd get tired of looking at them, but I don't. I can sit here for the longest time, picking up bead after bead, and seeing things I never noticed before.
Now here's a question for you. It's your chance to have a say in things around here. Two or three of you have asked me to make beads that fit on Pandora bracelets. They have a larger hole than the Troll beads. I personally prefer the look of the Troll bracelets, and like the fact that Pandora and other bead brands will all fit on them. But maybe that's just me. Two or three of you aren't enough to get me to add the larger hole size to my line, but 20 or 30 of you might get me to consider it! So now's the time to speak up. You want Pandora-size beads? Then leave a comment here, so we all know how many of you want these!
