ME on Beads Baubles and Jewels on You Tube!

I was pleasantly surprised to wake up to my daily email from Beading Daily and find it was about Steampunk in beading!  Upon further scrolling, I found that I got a mention and a picture of the piece I designed for Beadwork for the article I wrote in 2008.  And then, upon closer inspection, I found a link to a the segment I filmed for Beads, Baubles, & Jewels! My friends at Interweave put it upon their You Tube station, so everyone can see it now!  I still cringe a little, seeing and listening to me speak on TV, but I think I did a pretty good job for my first time.
I made the pendant above from an Earthenwood Triple Gear stone and a Vintaj brass bead, which was flattened to make a pronged setting for the stone.  I spoke a little about Steampunk, did a quick demo, and showed more of my work.  Check me out:
