Time for Tucson

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.

wow, it's 2010 already?

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!
