I’ve just realised I forgot to update you here about the addition of a new set of Materials Packs for my Baroque Tape Measures. As I said in my previous post, the plan is to stick with a set of colourways going forward, rather than building each pack individually, as this allows me to hold more of each one in stock. I’ll vary the sets over time, but for now these are the colourways:
Tequila Sunrise – my current favourite Yellow Opal rivolis, with my always favourite 407FR light red opaque matte rainbow seeds, and silver and orange to make a fun cocktail.
Fuchsia and Bronze – the original and I still think the best! The garnet AB rounds are a favourite, and this time I’ve included some lovely Halo coated fire-polisheds.
Red and Gold – a splendiforous luxurious colourway, for VIP measurements. Lots of Swarovski Light Siam, one of their most intense colours. This would work well with the red colourway in my Space Needle Case.
Turquoise, Silver & Scarlet – more Light Siam, this time mixed with opaque turquoise and silver for a Mediterranean feel. This is a variant on one I made for myself a while back, shown below, but with some adjustments to balance the red and turquoise more effectively (it had too much turquoise on the edge and red in the middle, so I’ve swapped the rounds and fire-polisheds over for the pack).
Vitrail, Lime & Silver – Medium Vitrail rivolis and shiny rounds, with a silver base and lime and turquoise highlights to pick out some of the colours in the rivoli. I really love the opaque lime fire-polisheds with a half Vitrail coating in this.
Fuchsia and Dark Plum – born initially of a bronze bead shortage, this grew into a lovely dark, intense colour way.
Sadly, because I’ve been so slow posting, the Fuchsia and Bronze has sold out, and the Fuchsia and Dark Plum I replaced it with has also sold out. I hope to have one or both of them back in stock soon, but in the meantime this week I’ve listed the new Vitrail sets (which may not appear that often as the rivolis are more expensive and the other beads can be harder to source). Anything I have is available in my Etsy shop here, or by clicking on the pictures (in the case of those still available), in my Folksy shop. Do let me know if you have any ideas for colour ways you’d like me to make I the future.
