Right preparation for the show...THESE are the colors of my life...
Here's a slide I just finished...The beads I lampworked with Italian glass and the rest is free formed with Sterling silver...

The upper component is a commercial piece...the lower I fashioned from copper with a new tool I picked up at the bead show last weekend...Fun!

A work in progress...

Hope what your busy with today...puts a smile on your face too....hugs my friends, xoxo~Kathy.

  6. What marvelous colors for your are so very talented! Such lovely work.
    When we were in Italy a couple years ago we brought back a bunch of lovely glass beads for a jewelry-making friend of my daughter's. Luckily I got a couple pieces as a thank you- was fun because I knew where everything came from.
    Been meaning to say how much I love hearing about Michigan as I was born and raised there.

    I see that we have several thing in common. I also have a sweet granddaughter named Ellie...I made jewelry for a time...Ill Divo are men that sing my heartsong...

    As for golfing...years ago I went with my husband...I drove the golf cart...backed into a tree and dented the bumper just a bit...he teed off and then he teed me off and I haven't been invited back...but that's alright...I'd rather shop....

    Your blog is lovely...I perused it briefly but plan to return...I am now a devoted follower. Your pictures are spectacular.

    Wishing you God's richest blessings...Betty
