Hi guys!

Yes, there will be more kits! I'm waiting on a glass shipment full of clear to make more canes.

I don't want to presell kits because I know myself. I freak out if I think someone is upset with me. If 50 of you guys prepay for kits and I don't have them done super fast it will feel like a bunch of little hammers pounding my brain. LOL

I'd be much more comfortable selling them as I have them available. Then nobody can be mad at me. LOL Just so there is no misunderstanding though- only the first ten kits were this price.

I don't want to list the kits at the realistic price and surprise people. $10 was an introductory price to get the ball rolling and see how they were received.

I'll post again as soon as I have more kits- I promise! They will be in my etsy shop when they are ready and I'll post right here in this thread.

Hugs.
~~Mary

Hi mary, just received mine today, everything is in perfect condition, made it all the way to Canada without a crack.

Wonderful Kit, can't wait for the weekend to try it out.

What a wonderful idea you came up with, such a great addition to the tutorial.

OK guys, here's the deal.

I have spent all morning making enough of every cane in the tutorial to put together 17 kits and I'm still in full production being as efficient as I can while maintaining first quality.

Based on some unsolicited input I've gotten from several different sources, I've made some small modifications to the kit to help keep the final price down.

It's been brought to my attention that most people already have the silver leaf/foil and ivory glass to make their silvered ivory stringer. Since I'm not supplying the finished sis cane--might as well not include that in the kit. Same thing on the half rod of transparent blue. This is a staple for most people and is redundant to include it in the kit--doesn't really serve a specific purpose or save anyone any work/time.

The official price of the kit will be $16. No presales. If I don't have them ready to ship at a moment's notice they won't be listed...this keeps you guys from having to wait a long time for your order. They will ship via priority mail within 24 hours.

Included in the kit:
8" tentacle cane

8" dichroic stringer

8" kelp cane

8" seaweed cane

8" intense color frit stringer

10 assorted sea urchin murrini

1/2 tsp pixie dust

Wanted to give you a heads-up here before I list them on etsy so the people who missed out the first time have a chance to find them.

I intend to have them entirely listed and ready for sale at 4:30 pm EST.

Thanks guys!
~~Mary

Pia...I do have a tutorial for the frogs--it is on my website. Oh wait...do you mean that funky one with the coral toes? I'm not even sure I could make that one again far less do a tutorial for it. Was kinda dumb luck.

Anyway...I'm really really sorry for being late. I couldn't help it, but the kits are in my etsy shop now.

If you miss out on this batch I'll be refilling tomorrow. I'm going as fast as I can. Those tentacles take a while. LOL

Bahahahahahaaaaaaa! LOOK who was in the right place at the right time, for a change!! Woo hoooo!!!

I've been wanting to try this tut but have been lacking the motivation to do all the prep work. Maybe once I see how well I do with the applications then I will be more motivated to do my own canes and stuff. Thanks for making these, Mary!

LOL! I'm glad for it to go to such a good home! He is cuter in person I'm tickled that you like him. All the domestic kits shipped priority this afternoon! International ones have to go out in the morning..the clerk at the post office shut the window right in my face! I can't believe I waited in line all that time and she shut down right in front of me. I thought we were friendly!!! I give her Christmas gifts and everything. She hurt my feelings. pout

I did a little funny figuring. Just for this batch of kits I pulled 12 feet of tentacle cane...it was more like 15 or 16 feet, but not all the pulls left me with full 8" cuts in an even number so I have plenty of 6" canes for myself. If I pull that much tentacle cane, once per month, for 3 years that is 540 feet of tentacle cane.

Huh??? I would have bet it was MUCH higher. LOL

Then again, it only takes about a half inch of tentacle cane to make one jellyfish so that is about 1080 jellyfish I've made and that actually sounds right. 2 jellyfish per bead times 540 beads....yep that sounds about right.

~~Mary

Mary, I'm exhausted after reading your post! I don't think I've even made that many beads, never mind specific types of beads.

LOL, Between my computers and disks I have over 8000 bead photos. I average 3 photos per bead so if I wanted a rougho estimate of how many beads I've made that were worthy of taking a picture it's about 2, 667 beads. Give or take a hundred or so for sets of multiples and gifts that didn't get pictures. That's over a 7 year period, mind.

That's 380 beads a year. Sounds right to me when you average together my time off periods and my manic times. LOL
