Sharon Peters Lampworked Glass Beads
and my favorite instructor ever! Funny, wacky,
inspirational and she makes HUGE beads! Check it out,
it's guaranteed fun!
Andrea Guarino is a COOL person! Warm,
friendlly, helpful....and talk about amazing beads! I
love her work and I love her! I have taken her class,
taken a class with her and got to know her a
little better at the 2008 Gathering. I am hoping to
take her master class one of these days. Check out her
work and enjoy!
M & D Designs Vickie Branch and
Marion Ogle (mom and daughter team) have a wonderful
glass and bead shop in the quaint town of Chinook WA.
And although tucked away in this little coastal town,
they offer a HUGE selection of glass, tools, beads,
classes, you name it! And if they don't have it, they
know where to get it. Check out their website...better
yet, stop by if you're in the neighborhood.
Deb Crowley's Fish Deb Crowley was (and
still is!) an inspiration for me with her ability to
create realistic looking fish from glass. I have been
fortunate enough to have been part of her workshops as
well as Glass Stock 2004!
Kate Fowle Melaney is an amazing bead
artist as well as an amazing instructor. Her class was
so full of info, I am thinking of taking it again next
year! Electro-forming, painting, enamels, metals,
reduction glass...you name it, we played with it. Kate
was more than happy to demo anything we wanted to see
and really is a bounty of bead knowledge! Oh did I
mention her beads are GORGEOUS too!
Frantz Glass has a great selection of
glass and tools, good prices and very friendly
Arrow Springs is another frequently
visited glass stop for me!
Diving Turtle I have had the pleasure
of being on the same dive trip with Judith on several
occasions. She is a wonderful person who loves the
ocean with the same passion I feel. She has even
written a book about her experiences underwater called
Universe Next Door: A Personal Odyssey. Be sure to
checkout Judy's, and her husband John's, underwater
photos from around the world.
Jim's Website Jim Lyle, a good friend
and dive buddy, has been all around the world
(literally!) diving with his lovely wife Deborah. He
has taken some amazing photos and writes very
entertaining and thorough trip reports. If you have
thought about taking a trip and it's near an ocean,
have a look...he has probably been there!
Ocean Conservancy Save the oceans!
Sea Shepherd An aggressive ocean and
fish conservation group with emphasis on illegal

The Slug Site My favorite nudibranch
site! So many nudis, including a photo by Roger of the
Sea Turtle Restoration Project An
organization fighting for the turtles as well as
advocating against long liners! Lots of info!
