Well, I admit it....been lazy this last couple of weeks....normally I am busy getting ready for Tucson...making beads, re-doing my displays buying any loose little bits I may need and trying to sleep, wash clothes and pack in between! I am still working on my new beaded designs and I went to the Baltimore Bead Show last weekend to buy a few beads....came home with 300$ worth! Granted, that is a few for me but they were all seed beads, and a lot of them! I got to see some friends I haven't seen in a while and that was nice to be able to catch up. I did get some beautiful 2mm crystals and am planning on using them on my beaded polymer cabs as the accents around the face.
I am also involved in a secret project(I will let you know when I can) and had to have my hair done and photos taken....so I had Brandon come over and do me up and then he took my photo....hair looks good but the photo isn't the glamour shot I hoped for! Oh, well....have to work with what you have....
I signed up for my classes at Bead and Button and am way excited! I am taking a glass casting class with Susan Lenart Kazmer and a enameling class with her also. Then I am taking a PMC/enamel on glass class with Vicki Hallmark and another enameling class with Gwen. A couple of seed bead classes with Leslee Frumin and a image transfer class with Sherri Haab on PMC and one with Donna Faulkner on transferring images to fabric.....I am looking forward to trying some new things! I noticed that a lot of my friends aren't going to be there which is a shame since it seems like I never have enough time to shop with them. I am so hoping things get better soon! So, today I will show you one of the necklaces I am planning with one of the beads I showed you last time.....I think it is going to be pretty once it is finished. I need to go to Beadazzled up in Baltimore to pick up some needles to sew it up...can you believe that I went to the bead show and forgot to get needles and thread and beeswax! Anyway, hope you like the pictures....and before you ask, no pink since I am not going to Tucson....maybe for Bead and Button! Have fun in the studio, Kelly
