Its Almost Time!

The Gathering is almost here!! Everyone I speak with (bead people of course)  is excited for all that will be happening this week. The Gathering is our International Society of Glass Beadmakers conference. People will be here from all over.......very cool that its all happening in Rochester too!

I've been busy as you might guess, preparing for this big event as well as getting ready for upcoming shows. I thought I'd post just a few items here to show you what will be available at my Bead Bazaar table on Saturday.........

Toggles.........I use these in my jewelry and will have a few for sale on Saturday. I think I'll put them up in my Etsy shop til then.


I'm crazy about capping my beads!! AND about Double Helix glass. Its such a mystery as to what these little beauties will look like once out of the kiln. They look one way in the torch and then another once out from the kiln.


This one was my first of the week......looks like the world. Every view is a bit different.



Glass can be yummy. This glass does all the work for the most part. There is some coaxing you must do and its really capturing it just at the right moment.



There is something about red and orange that I just adore. 

I hope to see you Saturday or.......check out my Etsy shop later today (I must make more beads right now) to snag a few of these!
