Last night I purchased the “Moth Wing” tutorial from its designer and Master Lampworker, Andrea Guarino-Slemmons. She is one talented lady who keeps finding her voice as evidenced by her diverse styles, hopefully, one day I will be able to travel to the opposite coast to take a Masters Class ….hey, a gal can dream!
Well, I have three beads that I have made since last night and here they are. I am not sure if I will be listing them at the shop. I will have to think about that.
I am always delighted to be able to find a site and immediately fall in love with the wares. It usually takes a combination of things to really get my attention, shape, color, subject matter and medium and when that is glass, well…what can I say, it’s my fave! I came across this site on Etsy
and just thought the work was wonderful enough to want to mention it here.
Anthony also has a website called WeAreRevo
where he has other styles of glass for sale and is most definitely
Have a fabulous evening and as always, happy beading!
Oh my, oh my…my heart starts to beat faster, my upper lip is showing beads of sweat, I start to shake as the adrenelin starts coursing through my body. My hand is trembling with the knowledge that I will have to pick up that darned needle and thread and do something with it and that soon I will be shouting words so crude they would make a sailor blush!! Trust me, I have tried to overcome this fear of sewing, weaving, and working with long lengths of cord in every method known to mankind, the last being Kumihimo., but to no avail. Yes, I know I am masochistic.
However, I just came across this wonderful etsy shop called Totus Mel
and my jaw droped to my chest and I fell in total awe and I realize that with talent such as this, I don’t have to risk my health or vocabulary again.
Thanks etsy, life is good,
Today was so wonderful, Christina, a customer of mine, sent me a photograph of a necklace and earrings that she made with a set of beads she bought from me called “Oil Slick”. She utilized faceted citrine irregular chunks, Greek silver beads that are also irregular in shape and put it together with sterling wire. Fantastic job Christina!
