In the studio..
We are consumed with design and glazes in the studio; making new work for Tucson for the Best Bead Show in September. We hope to have a new line to introduce there and are excited about our new direction. Feedback from designers really influences us and we listen carefully to trends and directions. We struggle with our decison to make one of a kind pendants since it is hard to entice wholesale buyers when they have to choose each piece for their shop. We are clear that our creativity and the philospohy of craft will keep us making each piece uniquely for now at least.
We have a new line of sculpted heads called Beadheads which are whimsical and fun. Joan makes each head and creates characters. A customer in Chicago bought the first- "Babushka" and we now have made quite a few others, all different.
