Custom order

This bracelet was made for a customer who
picked out the lampwork beads, and
wanted gold/bronze metal beads instead
of silver. The beads are made with some
lustre glass, and have quite a bit of
iridescence. Hope she likes it!

New Bracelet

I have been playing with more of my Tucson
stash today. I dismantled a necklace I have
had for 3 years, and used my lampwork beads
from it. It looks much better this way, jazzed
up with lots of silver. Love the dragonfly
clasp. My problem is that I hate to part with any of this!

Art Exposed

Well, if you like some of the new things I have been making, you can see them in person at the Art Exposed show next Saturday, April 5. This time it is being held at the Brentwood Baptist Church, 3512 Charleswood Drive N.W. The show is on from 10:00 to 5:00. I have a link to a map on my website.

Lampwork Bracelet

Posted by PicasaI got some amazing clasps in Tucson. Here's one of them, combined with my lampwork beads in a bracelet.

More Kumihimo Cords

Fibre Necklace

This necklace uses some of the gorgeous fibres I got in Tucson and is combined with my lampwork beads.

Finally, a new posting!

It has been pointed out to me that I haven't updated my blog in a long time. I have to agree, I will try to do better. I seem to have lost the ability to upload pictures into my posts, so the pictures show up above this. I recently got a new computer, with Windows Vista, and I feel as if I am learning to use computers all over again.
Anyhow... I was lucky enough to travel to Tucson in February, for the Rock and Gem shows there. Wow!!! Talk about sensory overload. I went a little nuts buying many things, fibre among them. The pictures above show some of my recent projects.
