Our crazy weather is really making me guess at what’s going to  come next.  But the daffodils are blooming, and I cut some forsythia for a vase in the house.  Usually spring is my favorite time of year, but this year I just am not sure what will happen outside my door in the next two hours.Just as a reminder, at the end of this month, I’ll get to see old friends again at the Rocky Mountain Bead Society Show in Denver.  I’ll have more details on the 22nd.Next month, we have some brand new multimedia and beads classes at the Gahanna Bead Studio including this bizarro bracelet (you can make it with or without the spikes).  I’ll tell you about them in May, but meanwhile, we still have room in a couple of the classes this month.  Details and links are in the post below.

I’ve been working hard to update my Etsy There’s tons of new stuff on there and loads of clearance items in the artisan focal beads, eurostyle beads and beaded jewelry sections.

Happy beading!

Nearly full – be we can still fit you in!
This pendant looks complex, but wait until you see how easy it is! Learn basic peyote stitch, one of the mainstays of bead weaving, while stitching this embellished slide pendant. For students who already know even count flat peyote stitch, we’ll go over “fast peyote,” which does two rows at a time.ALL MATERIALS INCLUDED IN CLASS FEE, kit available in silver, gold or bronze with white pearls.

A few weeks ago, I introduced you to the Etsy Bead Embroidery Guild, and the first “bead fest” I got a chance in which to participate.  It was a Steampunk-based theme, and you can read about it here.
The Guild also has introduced a new “Mini Fest” every 6 weeks which is based on a specific color. Our first one was white.  These are smaller bead embroidered items: barrettes, earrings, pendants, brooches, etc.  I think we’ve decided that the cap on them is $150 USD.
So… here they are!  I actually made 3 items for it…  and the top one is actually a class.  You can take it in March at the Gahanna Bead Studio!  More details on that coming soon to THIS BLOG!

Its getting close to the new year!  Have you made your resolutions yet?  I haven’t… and unless something drastic has changed since I wrote this, I probably haven’t done my holiday shopping yet, either.  I always put it until last minute.

My thanks to everyone who came out for the Glass Axis holiday sale!

There is still time for a few Good River Gallery beady events this year! Currently running – a trunk show of patterns, and brand new beads at the Bead and Glass Boutique in Pitman NJ.  Even if you’ve been checking out my Etsy shop, there are beads at her store that only she and I have seen (unless you’ve been there already).


And… of course there’s a class and its coming up soon:  the Dragon Scales Bracelet at Gahanna Bead Studio in Ohio.
  •  Dragon Scales Bracelet.  Sun, Dec 16 1-4pm.
    • We’ll have a limited number of colorways available as kits at the store, or feel free to contact me for a list of supplies. Because of this option, materials are not included in the class price this time, but they are all available for sale at the store. 
    • You need to be comfortable with even count flat peyote stitch to take this class.

Happy beading!  And I’ll talk atcha again in the new year!  Have safe and Happy Holidays and a healthy new year.  Remember…  friends ALWAYS let friends drink and bead (Carol got me started on chocolate wine, so its all her fault), but please drive safely.

For my friends in the US, I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with friends or family.  To my mom…  HAPPY BIRTHDAY (a few days ago)!  For my wonderful international friends, I hope you are gearing up for a lovely holiday season. If you are in the Middle East, I hope for continued safety.  And if you are on the East Coast of the US, I hope you are recovering from the storm at the beginning of November.  I have lots going on this upcoming month!  I hope you’ll join me for some of the events.The photo (above) is from Prague a number of years back, taken just around this time of year.My thanks for this month to my dear friend Christina (Good Quill Hunting), who sponsored a wonderful contest that required us to use feathers.  You can see my results and read more about it in some of my earlier blog posts from this month. Also, thanks go to my lovely and ever gracious model, Danielle, who makes my pieces look really fabulous and sweetly works around my schedule.  Thanks also to Jennifer Wilson, who allowed me to be on the SoftFlex “Spotlight On” for them this month.  You can see the article (and photos of Danielle) at http://www.softflexcompany.com/WSWrapper.jsp?mypage=spotlightdesigner_Nov12.html


The Glass Axis Holiday Sale in Columbus Ohio is scheduled for the December 7-9.  I’ll have finished jewelry for sale including brand new items with a holiday theme.  And some Buckeye stuff ’cause I can’t seem to help myself.  For more details, keep your eye on this blog.  I’ll post more about it soon.I’ll have a trunk show of patterns, and beads at the Bead and Glass Boutique in Pitman NJ.  Everything should be set up on December 10th and run through the end of the year. And… of course there are classes.  Well, so far only one, but its a doozy (not because its hard, just because it has had a wonderful response).  Due to popular demand, we’re going to do the Dragon Scales Bracelet at Gahanna Bead Studio in Ohio.
