Once again, I am heading into Tucson for the Best Bead Show starting on February 3rd through the 7th. Click on the photo above for venue info and times. I will be in the BIG tent, first booth (5A) as you enter from the parking lot...easy access!! I have been working very hard on making lots of new goodies, so be sure to stop by and check them out! I am sorry I have not added more to my etsy shop, but I am hoping that I will add items when I return from AZ. I know I always say that....
have two fun tutorials in the new spring issue of Bead Unique. It features a macrame necklace using my etched “beach glass” shells and toggle clasp. For you glass artists, there is also a tutorial on how to make your own glass toggles....they are fun and easy to make! If you need to order the issue/subscription, click HERE for more info! Bead Unique is one of my favorite bead magazines! I will be able to take orders for the shell/toggle sets upon my return from Tucson. These sets are made with a bigger hole size than my regular shells so you are able to pass several strands of cord through them.

Well, well, well....it's now 2010. How did THAT happen! I never even had time to say merry Christmas! Well, it is what it is and here we are, in a new year....ready for a great year full of positive change and FUN! And speaking of FUN, I am heading off to Dallas TX this weekend to teach at the Craft Guild of Dallas for three days of fish and FUN! When I return home, I will be full time on the torch to get ready for the Tucson Best Bead Show. I also have a new tutorial out in the newest Spring issue of Bead Unique magazine. There are actually two tuts, one on how to make a lampworked sea glass toggle, and the other is a macrame necklace with sea glass shells. I will add some photos next week. In the mean time, here is a new Food Chain I made....which is also my work (different color than this one) featured in the latest issue of The Flow Woman's Issue! Wow. It's a good start to the year! I promise to update with photos and links next week!
