Please take a look at Cyndi Lavin's blog: Bead Arts where on May 24th, she has posted an Artist Profile about...... me!

Once you have done that - bop over and take a look at Cyndi's web site with its opening line:

Wow - enjoy the journey!

Thanks again Cyndi for making me look so good!

Stringing Magazine

I'm soooo excited about this! "Cascading Tangle" is featured as one of the free project with the summer issue of Stringing magazine!

You can see it here:

This is the first piece I made with the Tangle - it is still one of my favorites!

Thanks for looking and if you'd like to purchase a Tangle and maybe a coordinating set of cones, check with the bead shops listed here on my blog, or with Ornamentea.

Remember to send me any pictures of finished products and I'll try to get them posted!

Here is a plug for a friend's husband. Poetry for the Skeptic. I love these as pendants or they could sit on a desk, hang from the edge of your computer monitor or just lean nonchalantly against your kitchen window sill. Also - is that name cool or what! Good luck to Jesse as he travels his poetry path.

Ugly Necklace Contest

Well - here is a different kind of treat for your senses! When cruising through some of my favorite blogs, I find this: The Ugly Necklace Contest , posted by Cyndi Lavin on her Bead Arts blog. Sort of like a car wreck - you know you should just drive on by, but you slow down and look anyway. Once you get your votes in and are ready for some visual rehab - check on the entries to this month's challenge at Art Bead Scene.

See ya in the bead shops!

Trunk Show Pictures

Thanks to everyone who was able to come by my trunk show on Friday and Saturday. It was great to get to meet so many designers. I handed out cards with this blog and Art Bead Scene blog on it. I'm hoping to get lots of images emailed to me!

These are some pictures of the items I had there. Gotta run and go make some more!
