that I have been M.I.A. for the last week. Busy making kits for my workshop, designing new beads and jewelry pieces, getting ready for shows, looking at new cars. Too busy to even take pictures! Anywho---I will be at the Piedmont Farmer's Market on Saturday, and Sunday, in Hastings at Art-in-the-Park. See you soon!!

I'm back...

from Kearney, and in one piece. A little sunburned--you'd think I'd learn to stay out of the sun. Or at least to bring sunscreen! Anyway--some quick pics before it got too busy:

It was a lovely show--filled with lots of familiar faces, and some new ones too. And as a side-note---if you bought beads from me and left them in the park restroom, please e-mail me at I have your beads!! My daughter/helper girl happened to see them unattended on the counter by the sinks and brought them back to our booth. I would love to return them to their rightful owner!!

On my table..

there are several projects! Like this guy, "Locust Song": He just needs some finishing fringe and he'll be ready to go :)

And these discs for "Tie One On" necklaces:
Along with more earring pairs.
And these lentils & rounds:
Destined to become pendant/earring sets. Pretty florals, yes?
So you can see, I have been busy--I'll have lots of new things for my next three shows. Check the sidebar for a locations!

Here's Ayden....

enjoying a nice cup of juice in his pool: Summer is great, isn't it?

And here is the bracelet I made inspired by the colors of Ayden's pool: The extra beads on the side will become matching earrings and a pendant.
