NEW Frogs on Etsy!

You’ve been asking for it, so here are five frogs available now on Etsy! And, only 2 weeks left until the 2014 SCUBA Show in Long Beach! I am going to try (very hard) to get a few SCUBA frogs made for the show. I have been getting several requests, so I will see what I can do. Hope to see you soon, either at the show or in my Etsy shop!

It's May and it is hot, hot HOT!!

Here in Southern CA, a typical May is pleasant temperatures mixed with sun and fog. But it is now SO HOT! 90° today! And the wind is blowing, but the wind is hot too!
The weather sometimes dictates what I’m going to work on, so as you may have guessed, I have not been on the torch lately. But I have been inside where it’s cooler, working on new jewelry designs for the SCUBA show. I am always excited for this time of year. I love taking my beads and creating new styles of wearable art! The SCUBA show is my biggest finished jewelry show, so I get a lot put together this time of year. If you are a diver, this is the biggest SCUBA show on the west coast and it’s a really fun show. Check out the show details HERE. I will try to post a few more photos as I get more made.

My next show after the SCUBA show will be the San Diego Bead Society Bazaar on August 2nd & 3rd. I will be attending the Gathering, but will not have a booth, just going for fun! I hope to see you at one of my shows. Can’t make the shows but interested in my beads? Email any questions at
