Etsy shop changes

A few days ago, I was shopping on etsy for czech faceted glass beads to use in my rosaries. Many shops had their beads not listed per size or finish but by color!
I really liked this and decided to give it a try for my lampwork beads shop too.
So I spend an entire evening testing categories and rearranging the beads.
I really like the result. It looks much better and more organised than ever. If you want to go and take a look, here is the link:

I would love to get some feedback if you prefer it this way or if you liked it better before . :-)

Silvered Ivory Bands

I have been making this design and some slight variations: round and nuggets, matte and glossy, large and small, for more than 8 years now, and still I always come back to this classic yet versatile design.

The first set , in classic ivory has been tumbler etched and has a nice earthy touch to it.

 I love tumbling the beads, as there are no dangerous chemicals involved.

If you want to have a closer look at these sets; look here:
