Firstly welcome to all my new subscribers that I met in person at Arbor Lakes Art Fair, in what was a hot couple of days. Thank you so much for visiting my booth and signing up to get these emails. Don't forget to use your $20 off your FIRST online purchase by adding SIGNUP to the checkout page.
So, what have I been doing since the fair? Well, quite a bit as it happens, those of you that know me, know that I love to dabble in a lot of things arty, so apart from beading, I also watercolor and am in the process of writing my first novel. I also help to run the Maple Grove Arts Center and serve as President/Exec Director and Treasurer. So, all in all, I'm pretty much busy from dawn to dusk. However, I did find time this weekend to begin a long overdue tidy and inventory of my bead stash, in particular all my Swarovski crystal pearls. Found some pearls and other stones that I'd forgotten about, bought some time ago, with I'm sure a project in mind, that never quite made it! Expect some new ideas to be hitting the website soon!
This week I have made, Coffee & Cream Necklace, using some almond Swarovksi twisted pearls and some 12 mm squares of smoky quartz with gold plated accents.
