My bead is going in to SPACE!

Meet “Buzz, the Space Frog”! Buzz will be joining the NASA team and a few other lucky space beads on the Space Shuttle launch next month. This is a fund raiser for Beads of Courage, which is an organization that helps kids deal with cancer. Please read more HERE.

This weekend I will be at Bower’s Museum (Saturday) for the Art of Adorning the Bead show and Sunday, I will be at Los Angeles Bead Society Bead Bazaar. Be sure to drop by if you’re in the area! I have lots of nice shell sets for your summer designs, plus plenty of fun fish and frogs too! I made this new type of SCUBA frog that I am calling “SCUBA Frog meets Food Chain!” Sorry, it sold right away, but I wanted to post a photo, which was taken quickly at my last show...but you get the idea.
Next up, in just three weeks is the LONG BEACH SCUBA SHOW. My biggest and best jewelry show of the year! This year I will also be featuring glass art from the Mazet Studios and Hagstrom Art Glass, as well as my 3rd year collaborating with Rickie Voges Designs. As always, I am very much looking forward to the SCUBA show and it’s very early this year. So LOTS to do until then....and hope to see you at one of my shows!

Thanks to everyone I saw and met in Las Vegas! It was a great show and Lisa and I had a blast! Also, thank to all who have been shopping with Etsy! I promise to get more up there next month, after all the shows are done so definitely, check back!
One last note, check out my latest tutorial in The FLOW magazine! An issue dedicated to glass artists inspired by nature!
