Wow, a lot of new names on here now - and so many fantastic creations. As some of you know I took a sabatical from making bears about a year and a half ago. Well I have decided that I'm not going back to bears - I am having way too much fun making glass beads. I have been selling my glassy creations for a while now, and have just been accepted into a huge art show here on Vancouver Island, B.C., Canada, that is held on the August 1st long weekend. I am going to try and post a couple of pictures of my beads - if I can remember how!
Anyway, I have decided to sell all my mohair, and will let it go for a fantastic price. I have to make a list up of what I have left, and will let you know what there is. It will probably be going for around $10 - $12 US per fat quarter.
If anyone is interested in this mohair, please send me an email, and I will email you the list, as I don't want to list it on here. Thx.
Wow, has it really been a year and a half! Your beads are absolutely fantastic (as were your bears!) - you are one talented lady! I'd be really tempted to get some of your mohair if I didn't already have so much - not sure how much longer I will be making bears either - although I'll need to come up with an exciting new venture like you have. Good luck with your show - wish I could be there to have a look!
Thanks Eddie, It is a lot of fun - at least until you burn yourself - LOL. Actually it wasn't so funny when I did - 2nd degree burns on two fingers.
I miss the teddy shows that we had, they sure were a lot of fun. Now I sell beads at markets in the summer, and shows in the fall.
Bye for now,
It is nice to read you again...
I did not realise time past that long after you last posted here on TT...
Now I have seen your beads, I really understand why you are hooked. They are really incredible. I like a lot your style. Now I know nothing about that new world, but I really hope you found a unique style and will be very succesful at selling them.
Have you made a blog or website with your bead works? I would love to have the links if so. I want to follow you in your new venture... and if I have a link to put on my blog, my friends will be able to discover your work!
I agree with the others, it is hard to believe it has been 1 1/2 years since you've been gone. I have missed seeing pictures of the wonderful bears that you created.
Your glass beads are beautiful. I can see why you want to continue making them. I'm with Shane, please visit us every so often and show us your beads.
Good luck in your new endeavor.
Your beads are fabulous!!! My faves are the two translucent blue sea shell shaped ones as well! I agree, you really need a blog to showcase them - it's easy to set one up and I bet you could pick up a lot of customers or even have shows from you blog. You can also meet wonderfully talented artists from around the world. Congratulations and all the best!
Hi Jane, I am in awe at your work, the beads are fabulous, well done on being an expert in another craft field, I'm sure you will do fantastically with your work. What no more Jane Perala Teddies!!!! that's sad in a big way, I love your bears they are so pretty. I always planned one day to be able to buy one, sigh! Anyway I don't really need to wish you good luck as your beads will sell themselves as they just capture magic somehow...but I will anyway 'Good Luck Jane.' :clap: :clap: :clap:
