I love getting new beads from Sue Kennedy’s Etsy shop. Her lampworked beads with dots of silver are one of my favorites. (Thanks Sue for the surprise extra pair of beads you added to my order!) I’m a pretty regular reader of her blog, and when she mentions new work I go straight to her shop to check it out.
I especially like how her etched (frosted) clear glass beads combine with the German lampworked beads I recently purchased from Beadin’ Path in Freeport, Maine.
A reminder: Today is “Small Business Saturday.” This holiday season let’s all do our part to shop small businesses as often as possible. Consider a craft fair, your local hardware store, the art gallery in town, the florist, the independent book store, or a small business commerce site on the Internet.
Where do you recommend shopping in your town?
