Bead and Button Show Bead Preparation

I have been in bead making mode – whenever I can get the time to focus on it. Even if it is a few hours. If it is les than that, I usually end up cleaning or prepping for when I do have a window of time. I love getting "into" that creative production mode, and get very grumpy when disturbed…

So here are some images of my making and glazing pieces for Bead & Button show stock.

I even love loading my kiln (or rather, find pleasure in a loaded kiln, packed tight and organized). I can’t help it – I just love the order of it…

And I love seeing things as I create. Random stacking of pieces…

And while firing pieces that I expect somewhat uniquely consistent results from, I still like to throw in some glaze tests. And to fiddle with some simple jewelry designs.

My work will be in two booths at Bead & Button. I will be selling my work through Thornburg Bead Studio (booth #610) and Yvonne of "My Elements" will have some of my teeny tendrils at her booth as she unveils some special little pieces at this show!

Lots of awesome collaborations will be taking place at this show – I can feel it!
