May is already over and I have one more tutorial I need to get finished for Bead & Button as well as finish more kits this time ’round than I’ve had in the past. I’m excited! The booth will also sport more lampwork than it has in the past. I’m in the same spot as last year – booth 410!

There are a few patterns that will be available at the booth only, but not on my Etsy site. The first is the Toho Triangle (Garden Trellis) bracelet pictured above for anyone who could catch the class at Gahanna Bead Studio and won’t be able to make the class at Crystal Bead Bazaar in Pittsburgh. Also available will be a lovely bracelet made with Twins and Rivolis, which I’ll also be teaching at Crystal in July. I’ll have my Sunrise in New Mexico necklace in tutorial form, featured in a few of my recent newsletters. And lastly, there will be a new “surprise” piece. You’ll see it at the show – ask about it!

Just one class coming up this month!
