Off to Best Bead Show Tucson
We are taking off to the Fall Best Bead Show in Tucson; taking the Beadmobile and zigzaging across the western states.
We will be introducing our new Artifacts line and the Babushkas. We have been having alot of fun in creating new porcelain pendant designs. The Artifacts are inspired by antiquities from Babylonia, Mestopotamia and Greece.
The faces pendants are inspired by my Polish and Ukainian grandmothers.. we have added uncles, cousins and even young Harry.They have stringing holes; some are vertical and some horizontal. I made a few as cabochons;they can be trimmed in peyote stitch.
