Well not blogged for an age so here goes.

Welcome to my blog.

I am now known as Vickie’s Emporium

Well this website is now 6 months old woahhh that has gone quick.  If you are new to this site I will explain a little.

Vickiesbeads was my beads and findings site

Beads4breakfast was my lampwork beads site

Frit addiction was my 104coe frit site.

Now that meant 3 log ins, 3 pages, 3 emails to keep track of :/ got very confusing at times.  Eventually after time I had customers that like to order from more than one of the sites and then had to take time to inbox me to combine postage, which meant waiting til I got the email to sort it out and then emailing them back. Or they carried on with their purchase to which once packed I had to refund the excess postage paid.

So to make it easier all the sites got combined and put under one roof and it is so much easier 🙂

Well I am in the middle of sorting out a custom services for the frit side of the business :). If like me you are a lampworker who never throws their ends away then the service is here to get them fritted for your needs no waste then. I usually use my ends to make stringers but you always seem to get a lot of ends don’t you.

All you have to do is make sure labels are taken off and if you want the colours separate then you need to sort them into their own bags/containers and then send them onto me. This service is not just for 104 glass its for any coe… but you will have to make sure your coes are separate unless you want to mix them?   The details will be up for you to read I am just waiting on my cutting bits to come which can take up to 2 weeks.

I am also in the middle of sorting out for you to order your own custom blends too just need to do a bit of a stock take 😉

I am also making some more lampwork beads to list soon I am hoping they are different to what you usually see.
