What's new in my studio?

New lampwork bead sets are ready to be listed on etsy.   

I've been working with special raku clay that has been infused with kyanite, and these pieces will be fired using ancient traditional Japanese raku firing methods at the end of October. I am so excited to see how these turn out! I've created my own line of "signature" pendants and large focal beads and links...more to come later in October.

Bead Soup.

If you haven't checked this out, you must!  It's a great group of jewelry making gals who send each other a package of bead soup goodies, and then create something fabulous.  You don't know what you're going to get!  I have a wonderful local customer named Kristy Abner  from who was nice enough to tell me all about this.  So of course I signed up immediately!
