Michael Barley Class

I was lucky to get a spot in the Michael Barley class this last weekend. I have wanted to take a class from him for ages, and he doesn't teach very much. So I pounced when Bedrock in Edmonton offered a 2 day class with him. He is a fantastic teacher, and I learned a lot. Here he is
showing us how to make one of his fantastic beads. And here is a tray of some of his beads that were for sale. Those are his leaf beads on the left side of the tray.

I learned one of my jewellery designs was accepted into a bead magazine contest. Here it is: If I get lots of votes, it will appear in an upcoming magazine, and I get some nifty prizes, so I am hoping everyone will vote for me! Here's the link:
