Beads 2010

Yesterday was pretty exciting for me when the postie brought me a copy of Beads 2010. I knew at least one of my little pieces was in there but I didn't know which pieces were selected. Worse, I couldn't remember just what I had submitted. January seems so long ago. So it was quite a treat to see my work included in four sections. So many talented bead artists out there and it is a pleasure to see my humble little beads along side of these gifted people.

Now it's back to the studio. I have my first ever bead show coming up May 1st. I have a huge pile of beads to clean up and put into the first firing tonight. The only ones done are in that little cup. But there's no pressure. I've got an entire 8 days to get ready.

I am going to look for that!! I hope to see more of your beads soon! I had a lot of compliments on a bracelet I made recently that had one of your cylinder beads in it. I will more than likely need to get more of those from you, but no rush, we will wait after your show and maybe talk then :)

Hugs
Marie
