Did you know that I have many of my tutorials available as a PDF?

First, the legal stuff (no fun, I know, but lets just get it all out of the way):

These tutorials are sent via email (PDF) upon receipt of payment. I’m sorry, if you need these patterns to be printed and shipped, then I will charge an additional fee. You are purchasing a tutorial only. Listing does not include a finished piece of jewelry.

There’s a ton going on this month, so this newsletter is somewhat longer than normal.

My thanks for September go to Joanne and Pam at the Crystal Bead Bazaar! Also, thanks to my big sis Barb who drove with me (actually, she drove the whole way PLUS we took her car because I handle a vehicle like an old lady). Happy New Year to my brother and his wife, who I had a wonderful breakfast with while I was in Pittsburgh. Also, I need to send thanks to Helen, Corby, and the staff at Gahanna Bead Studio. They always treat me really well.

October and early November are super busy for me! I have a ton of classes coming up and also some Bead Shows. If you missed my Soutache Bead Embroidery class at the Gahanna Bead Studio, you have TWO opportunities to take it in October and one in early November. Read below for everything coming up.

I have two action packed days at the Gahanna Bead Studio:

  • Soutache Beaded Bracelet Class. Oct 20
    • Royal Ruffles Ribbon Bracelet. Oct 20
    • Etsy Success for everyone. Oct 21
    • Photography for the online artist. Oct 21.

Interested in shows instead? There are two this month. Oct 12-14, my finished work will be at the Glass Axis Pumpkin Patch. Obviously, most of it will be fall, Halloween and pumpkin themed. Also, catch my lampwork beads and tutorials at the Great Lakes Fall Bead Bonanza.

My finished work will be at the Glass Axis Pumpkin Patch again this year. Obviously, most of it will be fall, Halloween and pumpkin themed. Look for brand new necklace designs. I’ve already started making earrings so I hope to have quite a few gift-priced items.
I’ll be working the show on Friday, October 12.

I can’t wait to see the folks from the great lakes Beadworkers Guild again. If you are in Michigan and haven’t been to this show, you are missing a real treat. Beads, beads, beads and more beads. Tutorials and some kits! I’ll be in the same spot I always am.
Southfield Municipal Complex Pavilion 26000 Evergreen Road Southfield, MI 48076

I’m loading up a new section of Halloween and Fall themed items on Etsy for this month! The section is mostly beads (including some Big Hole Beads for your Pandora or Troll Style Bracelets) but also has a few finished items as I complete them.

To check them all out, head on over to

http://www.etsy.com/shop/HannahRachel?section_id=6889290

As an overview, I’m working on a piece that is a Bead Soup Challenge.  Eva Sherman from Grand River Beads sent a selection of fun beads over to Kalmbach Publishing Company and they forwarded the selection to me.  Deadline is October 31st and I thought I was doing ok, but I just ran across a snag.  I’ll get to it in a second.  I think I’m still okay for time.

Check out the links that the bottom of this posting to see where this piece started and how it is progressing.

Last night, I added more wirewrapping to the base and also some more bead embroidery to the top.  There was actually more fringe onthe base, but I actually removed it because it was getting too heavy and I wanted to reserve some of those cool tube beads for the side fringe.

Here’s what I’ve got right now.

Anyhow, so I’m not too happy with it today.  I should say I like the top, and I like the bottom, but I DON’T LIKE THE TWO OF THEM TOGETHER.  They look like two different necklaces.  Also, those leaves still look pretty pink, even though are orange IRL.

So, I think I’ll probably set aside this project and let it stew for a day or two.  I’ve got orders I’ve been ignoring anyhow that I ought to catch up on.

Tune in later for the next installment…
