I'm here, I really am. I moved in the winter of 2013 and then again in May 2014. Still unpacking boxes, etc., and disovering the area.
My plan is to have my studio setup by end of summer, beginning of autumn to create new jewelry designs, destash a whooooole bunch of beautiful beads, silver and findings. A clean, more minimal studio will be in play to stir new creative ideas.
I did learn a couple of seed bead designs in a class at a fabulous local bead shop I found soon after moving. I was frustrated with the bracelet (above) at first, but once I created 3 units in the repeated pattern I loved it. The best part was it is light and inexpensive since there is no sterling silver.
I have a second style to try once my studio is up. THIS weekend I'll be clearing the studio of boxes but am being challenged with finding the right table.
So I hope you'll stick with me, because I will be back and in a new creative format.

I have been amazed that over the past several months
I have had a very difficult time locating independent glass artisans
who create lampwork cupcake beads.
There used to be an overwhelming number
and now I have to search for months
to find the level of quality I desire.
Thank the heavens for
