Finally finished up these bug beads from a class I took with Margaret Zinser

Margaret’s class was great. It is quite the process to make these beads. First you make a black blank. Then you decide where you will put white under color. Then you dry the white. Then paint and shade the colors. Then reheat the beads in the kiln. Then grab them out and torch the enamels and finally anneal. Most I was quite pleased with. Not sure I will ever do more though. Here us he masters website.

I have signed up for this terrific bead activity: through  http://www.prettythingsblog.com/   It is a bead exchange kind of like “eharmony” for headers. I can’t wait to see who I will be paired with.  We all have to send each other a wonderful package so I will see who I get and then start to go through my stash and make something cool to send.

What’s up lately

Filed under: Uncategorized — dragonflybeads @ 10:30 pm

I have really been enjoying doing more of the knotted bracelets lately.  I have recently visited Maui and came back inspired to produce some funky fishy bracelets.  I will post some pics soon of these two beauties.  The pace of Maui is truly inspiring.  One needs to reflect about our day to day pace and take time to enjoy the beauty around us.  I loved making all the little poky coral and brain coral beads to go on the bracelets then I let myself run with all the inspiring fish that we saw there.  Check for pictures soon.


waiting at gate 49 in Edmonton  again.  Looking out at the April showers.

Back from summer

Hi again I have been working on some great pieces lately in the “cuff” theme here’s another sneak peak.  Also the Beaverlodge Craft Club’s annual show and sale is October 22 and 23 at the Anglican hall so you will get a lot of selection opportunity to buy other great artists work.

This is such a fun cuff with wide flat beads and a killer toggle!
