Bead Show Tomorrow!

Well, I have been trying to blog all week, but it has just been too busy! I have a bead show tomorrow... The Bead Bonanza! I realized a couple of weeks ago that I would not be able to restock or have my new work done in time for the show, so I ended up cleaning out the studio and I am having a giant sale! I unearthed some beads I made a LONG time ago, some are almost 10 years old. It is kind of neat to see the old pieces, and to see where I have been and where I am going, artistically speaking. I think some of the themes repeat over and over through the years in different ways, which is really neat.

While I have been working on all the cleaning, I have been chipping away at some new work. (heh, literally chipping sometimes...I have been trying new things and have had some breakage, which is frustrating). I am super excited about the new pieces that are coming out! Unfortunately I was just a little too slow, and I won't have these new things to show this weekend. You can see a peek at the wet pieces that I just finished yesterday in the picture above. But I will have them done soon, and will be making a big deal about them in the next couple of weeks.

Anyway, that's what has been happening here. Time to finish getting ready for the show, and if you are in the Metro Detroit area tomorrow, I hope you stop by the Bead Bonanza and say hello!


  1. Looks like I'm going to be loving those hearts! Have fun!

  2. I am with Sue, great hearts. I wish I could afford a plane ticket to Detroit right now. It sounds like a great show. I have never been to a bead show. I don't even know if we get them up here.

    Good Luck!!

  3. Thanx for the bead brain! Now just...hmmm...how to use it.

  4. Julie, did you get the freebie brain charm? I wondered who would get that, and hoped that they would appreciate it! hehe
