Happy Memorial Day!

What is usually a holiday weekend for most, I am still busily stringing, wrapping, pricing and designing new goodies for the Long Beach SCUBA Show next weekend. Once again, I have collaborated with Rickie Voges who helped contribute to this years line. You can get a sneak peak of Rickie's designs HERE. If you have any questions, you can email me OR come see me at the SCUBA show!

I did manage to put this cute pair of 4th of July Fish Earrings on to my Etsy store this morning. I have a couple more pairs that I will be taking to the show this weekend. But if you want 'em, speak now....they go fast!

Looking ahead, on June 27th & 28th I will be having a trunk show at the Dreamstone Bead Co. in Rancho Cucamonga. This is my first trunk show at Dreamstone Bead Co. and I am very excited. I met the owner, Melissa, last year at The Gathering and I am looking forward to this opportunity. If you are in the area, please stop by and say hello. Click HERE for current newsletter.

SCUBA show time!

I am very honored to be the Featured Artist on the Beading Times website. How did I get into lampworking? What is my inspiration? Who are my favorite glass artsits? More info than you ever wanted to know about me! Thanks again Carolyn!

Welcome to my busiest time of the year! The Long Beach SCUBA show is coming up quick! It's early this year, May 30th & 31st so time is not on my side! I am keeping very busy making and stringing up beads. I will have my new SCUBA frogs available AND my newest creation, "Pirate Frog of the Caribbean"! This little fellow has already gone to his new home in New Orleans, but I will make at least one, maybe two more before the show. I glued a little tiny feather (from my parakeet) into his hat for the final touch.

At this time, it is going to be tough to take orders. If there is something you are interested in, please email me and we can start the process. But please understand I may not be able to fill the orders until 2nd week of June.

And speaking of June, I will be having a trunk show at the Dreamstone Bead Co. on June 27th & 28th in Rancho Cucamonga. My friend Bindy (The MadBeader) recently had a trunk show there and said it was great! Wonderful people and a fun bead shop. So if you are in the area, please stop by and say hello.
