Wandering Spirit
















If only you could touch and hold these beads through your screen. 
I haven't seen anything like it. They are completely hollow (which yes, I have seen before) and light as feathers.
They  have color like I've never seen. How does Aja do it? I have no idea. But I like it. Whatever she's doing, I really really dig it.


I recommend you taking a stroll through the Wandering Spirit sold section. Aja is on vacation at the moment but be ready to pounce when she returns and relists her beads. I tried putting one of her sets in a treasury last week and the dang things kept selling even before I could post the treasury!!

I'll show you a couple of my favorites...


Drooling, eh?

I knew you would.

  2. Hi, I am drooling! Big time! They look extraordinary gorgeaus. Looking forward to see what you will do with them. I made a few drooling purchases myself the other day. I believe YOU will drool Lorelei. Although I spelled it "drewling" in the title of my blog post (i am only swedish, aren't I ...). Check it out! All my best & bye for now!

  4. I believe Aja uses a process called fuming, you actually heat fine silver in the flame and the fumes from the silver cause that wonderful veining on the ivory. Ivory is a very soft glass so it is quite difficult to make hollows with, Aja has definitely mastered the technique.
    That wonderful color palette is so up my alley.

  7. I am so jealous! I wanted those badly when I saw them on the blog and she told me that they were spoken for - and it was you! Congratulations! I'm sure you will make something gorgeous with them. I can't wait to see.

  12. see- these make me kinda NOT want to use them b/c they're so gorgeous that I could only detract from them. This is why i dont use a lot of art beads- the art's already... done. I'd only need to tie this to any piece of string i found in the street and just walk around absorbing the compliments. I'd say- oh, thanks, I made it!

  16. Oh how eerie! I was just coveting her beads the other day, wishing the money into my account so I could justify a purchase.

I'm sorry to have to turn on the word verification here, but I got fed up with spammers comments!
