I have wanted..........

to show you these for almost two weeks now. I just have not taken the time to get a picture taken. I got these at the bead show in MN two weekends ago. They are polymer bugle beads and O rings. The bugles you can twist and bend and I have some fun ideas for jewelry with them. I have just been so busy getting ready to leave and for the bead show in Omaha I just have not had to play with these.
See they really do have holes. And next time I want to get all the really bright colored ones.

We leave for Florida on Saturday and will be coming back north just in time for the Omaha bead show April 10th. Hope to see a lot of you there.

Anouther busy Customer

Well Julie Overbey from Omaha sent me this picture of her new necklace with my disks. It came out just beautiful. Julie is home recovering from knee surgery so she had this made the day after she got the new beads. Way to go busy girl.

Lisa's Necklace

Hi I have been really busy trying to catch up after being in Minneapolis this last weekend. I just found this picture of a customers work and thought I would show you. This was made by Lisa Dryden from Omaha, NE with some of my spiky things. I really think it came out interesting and alive looking. Like something growing which is so nice to see after all this snow. Snow which I thought we had seen the last of but now they are saying more on Friday.

The last of them.

Well at least the last of the new color combos before the Minneapolis show. We are headed out for Hopkins in the morning. The show is both Saturday and Sunday at the Community Center on Highway 7. So if you are in the area come and see the new kits and all the new beads I have been making this winter.

New Kit Colors

I have been working this last week to make up some new kits. I have a bunch of new color combos and a few of the old standby color combos but jazzed up a bit. I added some transparent colors to the lime green and black and the red and black combos to make them different from the other kits. Don't want them to be the same do we?

I have more in the kiln and several more combos in my head so will try to get another picture up in the next few days. For now I am off to list some more things on Etsy.

Missing in action.

No I did not drop off the face of the planet. I had the best book when I came home from the DesMiones show. Jodie loaned me World Without End by Ken Follett and I just could not put it down. I have been meaning to show you some of the seed beads I got while in Omaha on the way home for the past week. So here they are. And...........
My friend Jodie also sent me the neatest birthday present yesterday. It is the greatest little take along project box and it was all full of beads and needles and thread everything to start a project right now. Way too much fun.
