Flowers and Leaves - Show Stock
I am busy making beads for the Fraser Valley Bead Show in October, and trying to get some different items in stock. I love the colours of these poppies, and I have lots more colours I want to try out yet, and I want to do more two and three toned ones as well. I plan on making about 50 of these, and thought I would sell each one with a leaf bead. A couple of the first ones ended up with little cracks in them, so I have made one of those into a pendant and will use it as a prop in the show to give the customers an idea as to how the beads can be used.
Unfortunately, I don't think I will be able to sell them in my Etsy shop, as they would have to be shipped in a box, and that means they can't go for "Small Packet Light" international, or "Oversize Letter" within Canada, because to qualify for those the packaged item has to fit through a 2cm slot, and be under a certain weight. In this case the depth of the box would be a problem, and the price of shipping would be double.
I hope you are all having a great week!
