Hi everyone I will be hosting my annual spring pottery and bead jewelry sale May 9, from 4-8 pm.
It is in my studio at 9725-75 Avenue.
Hope to see you there.
And the WINNER was SIOUX
Congratulation to Diane Valasek the winner of March’s bead draw. Here is next months draw which is a large hole flat bead with layers of ivory and amber finished off with silvered glass stringer.
This is the large flat bead it looks great on a chain or you can silver line it.
The 2nd annual Fine Spring Evening was held Wednesday at Crystal Park School. This year I offered to demonstrate glass bead making as a station at the celebration of the arts. It was a great time. The students provided an outstanding meal, there were plays and other demonstrations as well as a silent auction and bake sale.
I had a steady stream of young and old who wanted to offer up suggestions to create. There was everything from Submarines to of course angry and not so angry birds.
I always let the audience pick the colors and the bead to make. I can usually make it look something like they were thinking.
It really is great fun to get the audience participation and to watch the smiles and excitement as the beads start to take shape.
The hardest part is making people wait to see the finished products once annealed from the kiln.
Tomorrow I get to deliver them to all the people who participated.
