Bead & Button 2010

The show is about a week away now and I think this picture of my studio best conveys the chaos and panic that sets in about this time. I think I have enough, I think I thought of everything and put it on the "big" list but everything is either half done or half packed; I need to start finishing something! Half of my new light bar arrived last week and has been primed and painted. The other half was supposed to be here Saturday and, well, it wasn't.

I did finally get my example jewelry finished just today. I like to have some examples of things that can be done with my beads just to give some idea and inspiration or a good laugh for real jewelry artists. The picture of the hollow ribbon necklaces is not the best but my photo cube and lights are buried somewhere and I didn't take the time to do a proper excavation. I'm pleased with how they turned out.
I'm looking forward to the show and seeing everyone again. Donna Mehnert of Blackberry Beads will be next to me in booth 3 so I think it's going to be a blast. She's a fun gal and her work is beautiful.
I have 4 days of solid torching in front of me before I pack it in, up, and take it on the road so I hope to get yet a few more pretties made.
To all who are attending, I will be at booth 2. Please don't forget to print your admission discount coupon here. $2 off is $2 more to spend on beadie goodness!
