Default Companion kit to my Jellyfish Tutorial.

Want to make jellyfish beads from my tutorial but don't want to make the canes? I can help you!

Sometimes we don't like to make the canes, don't have time to make the canes or just simply need to see finished samples of what the canes should look/feel like.

I listed a kit in which you get the tricky canes listed in my Jellyfish Tutorial premade!

They are in my etsy shop.

http://www.etsy.com/listing/59511305/jellyfish-lampwork-beadmaking-canes-kit

There are 5 left!

Thanks for looking!
~~Mary

Hi Mary.
I would love to give this a try! Seeing as I have never done anything like this before I am concerned about whether I would be able to make anything recognizeable
So I am wondering if you can give me an idea of the skill level required!
Again, I really want to give this a shot especially because of your wonderful offer!
Thanks so much.
Karen

Karen, if you visit my website and go to the tutorials page you can see sample pages of the tutorial to help you determine if you think you can do it or not.

I would consider this an intermediate tutorial, however, I wrote the instructions at a beginner level. aka- I didn't leave anything out at all. It's surprising I don't remind you to blink. LOL

Beginners might think it is pretty challenging, but even if all you can do is learn to make the canes it is a good building block and will teach you quite a bit about heat control.

Honestly..at this price you can't go wrong. This is more than $10 worth of supplies and the first ten sold get a tutorial to boot. I'm really hoping these are popular so I wanted to kick them off big.

Thanks so much for asking and for everyone who has purchased one (or several) already.

Have fun.
~~Mary

I'm hoping that buying the kit will push me to try the bead since I've read the tutorial at least a dozen times and never tried it.

Yeppers, sorry that these are all gone for now guys. I've just never sold or shipped anything just like this before and I want to get these ten delivered and find out they all made it safe and sound before I list a bunch of them.

I've done my best packing them safely, and Lord knows they are going all over the place so this is a good test run. Canada, California, North Carolina, Arizona, etc. We should get a pretty good idea of how well these delicate canes travel.


I don't mean to concern anyone who ordered one of these. LOL Just wanted to explain why I don't have 20 more listed yet.

Well...that and because I don't have any more ivory or transparent blue glass to put in the packages. LOL

Each set of canes is carefully bundled together, wrapped first in tissue, then in a texture rubberized sheet, then in bubble wrap. The silver leaf is folded in a sheet of paper and taped to the inside of an index card. The pixie dust is in a tiny zip bag taped to the outside of that same index card. The murrini are in a tiny zip bag and taped to the other side of that index card.

All of it is bundled up together in more bubble wrap, the invoice and the 'getting the most from your kit' sheet is wrapped around it. It is put into a priority mail shoe box sized box and padded up.

If every single one of these don't make it in perfect shape I'll be devastated, but I can't move forward until I know for sure.

Hugs.
~~Mary

darn doodly dooo!!! how did i miss this? grrrr*

okay, stalking with other stalkers

*to all beginners out there leery of purchasing due to skill level. I'm a beginner too but I bought the jellyfish tut awhile back. I would go ahead and purchase the "kit" even as a beginner. Once my skill level progresses I'll have everything I need to make beautiful jellyfish beads.

I made beads from one of the kits I put together just as testers and wanted to show them!

This green one contains the ribbon twisty, the kelp cane, the urchin murrini and the tentacle cane from the kit:


This blue one only has the tentacle cane but you can see it better on the plain background in the image.

You should take names for a waiting list Mary! What a fantastic idea.

If a person only has money for one glass tutorial, your jellyfish tut is the one they should buy. This could be a book unto itself and is chock full of useful info.

Wow - I'm sorry I missed out too! I would happily pre-pay for a kit if you would ever consider doing that...
Thanks for all you share with this community Mary!

Hi Mary,
I wanted to let u know that I received my package today and all is well. That was quite the packaging job! . I can't see how anything could have broken even if it wanted to! Thanks so much.
Now I just need the tut. If u would PM me please.

Thanks again,
Karen

Mary, I'm sending you a PM as well but the kit got here today and everything is in absolutely pristine condition. My daughter is home on a teacher workday and her and her friend have ooohed and ahhhed over all the pieces completely amazed. Thanks so much for offering this!
