What’s in the works…

I have the worst time keeping this updated, sheesh. πŸ˜› Anywho…

Holiday season was…slow, to say the least. πŸ˜› But that’s okay, it ebbs and flows like the tide. In the meantime, I’ve done a lot of thinking and planning and this is what is in store for the year:

  • Name change. My business outgrew the DarkFire Designs name a long, long time ago. I don’t know what the new name will be but when it’s meant to happen it will make itself known. πŸ™‚
  • Shop revamp: a long time ago I embraced my witchy roots and sold wands, staves, goddess dolls, and incense burners alongside my jewelry. This was before I ever picked up a kiln shelf. After a hiatus from working on the shop I’m finding myself being drawn back to that world, and I will embrace it full force. This doesn’t mean I’ll stop fusing glass, but I will be incorporating much more into my glasswork, and also making rune kits in addition to what I Β made a long time ago. πŸ™‚ In essence, my store will slowly transform into a metaphysical shop.Β 
  • I’ve been expirimenting with metal inclusions in my fused glass. I started with silver-filled wire, which was a specatcular failure. πŸ˜› I will be trying brass next.Β 
  • I have a lot of kiln firings to post and new inventory to shoot. I’m waiting for pendant bails to arrive so I can finish pieces and get things moving.Β 

Also, for those in the Glendale area…

I have started selling my jewelry at The Talented Tortoise in the historic district. This is a wonderful little shop full of handmade jewelry, accessories, children’s clothing, pet accessories, and soaps, all made by local artists. If you’re in the area definitely give them a visit!Β 

And that is life, in a nutshell. πŸ™‚
