My favourite collected beads..

For years and years I have been shopping and collecting.. YOU`re right.. BEADS!
I found that I would make bracelets from a few of them.. a mix of evrything.
I call them GAIA-bracelets.

I have seen people now wear the Morten harket style.. lots of leather and bracelets around the wrist.
OK,. I make  lot of these beads myself. You can find them in my beadshop at etsy http://justliss.etsy.com
Finished bracelets at my EPLA shop, I will gladely pull them over to my Etsy jewellry shop trollsmed.etsy.com
I love beads, when I go for holiday, I shop beads, necklaces, just to take them apart when I`m back home.
WOW.....
I have also been to Denmark to learn how to make recycled glass beads. NOW I buy them from Africa instead, I love to support giving them a job. Instead I use my torch to lampwork bottles... It makes wonderful beads!
...  
Springtime I make bigger beads.. from hazel.. LOL:  Birds love them in winter, they are filled with food, and birds can hide when we pass by.
JI love rustic beads. Rough clay, porcelain clay beads with a surface.

And I go mad at holiday when I find a shop like this...
I should have had that box......
 .. Marrakech 2011.

Hera are whats in my bracelets....
I give away for free a leather bracelet when you buy one of these.  http://trollsmed.epla.no.

I have used bronze for the clasp, that makes beautiful fingers... LOL.. silversmithing is a dirty job, but someones gotta do it.



This is Gaia!
Take care of her, she is the most beautiful bead we got!


http:&&www.trollsmed.com I got shops at Etsy and Epla, and my own. They are all linked from blogs.

Dragon! Lampwork - Dragon beads ...

I made some dragons. OK - they just jumped out of my fire som I guess I saved them from the heat.....

- OR they were ..... fired???
Actually they were so fun to make that I made a lot. A few of them will fly to a gallery close to me, but I also wil put some into my ETSY bead shop in a few days... i did not manage to take photos, out fo battery. And the dragons would not lit my camera! BAAAH!

But try my Epla shop http://trollsmed.epla.com
They came out quite cute, and I made many sized and colours. The leaf is one of my porcelain handmade ones...

Working with my small folks :-)



How can soooo small people make such a lot of work???

Well, I have med two adoption offices for the small folks. Do they call them shops???
Sure, I got an idea, and NOW i make myself a lot of work!
But I love them so much !!!!



I am writing on the stories, but I guess the translation will be a problem... that time, that... (what is it called.. a challenge?)

One shop is at Epla, in Norwegian,

that opened three weeks ago, and today I finished a shop at Etsy.


Hopefully me small folks will get nice homes and humans that love them!

I also finished some LUCKY DROPS in boro glass.
I string them on recycled sari, soft and wonderful, and they can be tied in the neck.

MORE THAN 150 IMAGES HAS BEEN EDITED!

Oh how I hate dark winter light... taking photos in the dark winter from glass and silver is a ... mess!

Fan my offices, and share them :-) Hopefully you will meed one of your own small folks there too :-)))))
