Off to Tucson with new work...

We have been making new shapes and designs for Tucson. We have skulls, birds, and owls( seen in current Stringing Magazine) for the first time and wonderful turquoise high fired glazes. We have some crystalline glazes as well. The faces and Bead Heads have expanded to more shapes and designs for those who love them. Stringing also has a necklace with one of our baskets. The necklace was made w by Michele Mach of Beadin Dailey.

We have some new necklaces made with our beads which I designed; one will be in Step by Step Beads April issue.

I am mightily proud of my necklaces. A new departure for us.

I am into ethnic, "green", organic necklaces. very retro 60's wonderful to wear and some have an altered art edge to them. We will be expanding in 2009 into our new jewelry line using silver, bronze, brass, and waxed linen. I hope everyone loves them as much as I do. They are necklaces for strong women- women who buck the girlie look.. want to be embellished in a bold goddess way. Come see us in Booth 20 at Best Bead Show in Second Hall.

We have hundreds of new porcelain and stoneware baskets, pendants, and faces.

Thanks Erin, Hope all goes well for you; saw your work on ABS. We are so ready for warmer climate. We had so much snow and then floods.

Stopping to see friends in Palm Springs on way home .. maybe even sitting by the pool. Hooray.
