Been on a little vacation, haven't I? Now it's time to buckle down and get some serious work done. I'm very excited about the beads I'm making for 2008--lots of new shapes, colors and textures are coming out of my kiln. I think you're going to like them!! As soon as I nail down a concrete spring schedule, I'll post it here. No more website--all the news and delicious eye-candy will be posted here from now on.
By the way--you really should click on the picture to enlarge it--the layers on this one are outstanding! I just don't know if I can part with it!! Reminds me of an agate slice.

I've been making this style bracelet for at least 4 years now and it's still one of my best sellers--so I keep making them!!

Here's the beads for my next three bracelets and also a peek at the focals I've been making. Don't worry--I didn't take them all. There's still plenty of beads left in the box for your creations!!
