Now Showing

I've now listed all the completed cuffs in my shop ( I love how they've turned out and truly hope they spark some interest (and buyers!). I am incredibly nervous about Kent's Art in the Park Show next year, but excited, too. 

I am currently working on a piece with an "ocean view" based on this photo from one of our trips to Florida. This one is from 1999!

I decided to list my newest cuffs. I would like to stockpile them, but the money from them could buy more beads. I'm always needing more beads!

I have also decided to make more of these corset style cuffs in different colors for the show. I think these will go over well with the college and twenty-somethings from the university.

My biggest problem right now is having too many patterns I want to bead. That's what I get for playing with my photos for days on end! Now I want to create the patterns all over again because I've gotten more bead colors and I think they could be even more detailed.
Such a wonderful dilemma...

I'm thinking about how I will set up my shop and the display at Art in the Park next year. I think I will have sections...Deep Space...Of the Earth...In the Garden...At the Museum. I have obviously done pieces for the Deep Space and Of the Earth sections, but I've yet to get going on the floral patterns and patterns based on pieces found in museums. I think, too, I will list my finished pieces, even though I was trying to stockpile for the show next year.
