It's Trunk Show time!

It is Trunk Show Time!!!! I'll be at Ornamentea on September 11th and 12th with bells on. Drop by to see the new and the old. Shown here is a old idea with a new twist. I have made ring shaped beads for quite a while, but my production error rate was quite high as it was hard to place the middle hole right in the center. Then one day it hit me - just make them off center on purpose - Ta Da! A better looking bead that is also easier to make. A twofer!! Keep checking back as I post more pictures of new ideas.

I'll see you in September!

Hi Elaine! Are these available at Ornamentea yet? Let me know please. I'd love to use some in some new designs. I'm designing for the Spring issue of Stringing now, these would be so cool to use.

I'm not sure what the plan is yet about listing these on line. I'll keep you posted - I'd be honored for them to be included in anything you design. Thanks for all the lovely visions you give to us!
