Bead and Button Show Stock

Here are some images of most of the finished stock that I am taking with me to the Bead & Button show. You can find me and my work in the Thornburg Bead Studio Booth #610 June 7-9, 2013 (preview night is the 6th).

I have two sizes of my porcelain and stoneware ceramic bead headpins. The wire is Nichrome (nickel & chrome combination) which is used for firing in the kiln at high temperatures.

My Elements by Yvonne (booth 1158) will also have some of the smaller headpins and tendrils on short wires for some wearable landscapes she is premiering at this show! They are NOT to be missed (she posted an image on her Facebook Page the other day!)

And here is one of my two trays of textured discs that are going with me.

Nikki has some great plans and kits for earrings and necklace focal a with these. All of these will be in trays, to be made into whatever color palette combo you want…

And I have a final kiln load in right now that has more of these curved bracelet pieces in them. And if things turn out good – possibly some pieces that look – in my opinion – like water lilies… We’ll see tonight!

And for those of you that do not want nichrome wire in your headpins or prefer to glue them into place after the wire work is done on a project – here are some glue on tendrils.

I am going to send a bunch of these off to Darlene (D7 Studio) so she can have some for her upcoming shows. She is the one that requested I figure out a way to make and glaze these (and that I did – patting myself on the back for figuring that out!).

And with that, I’m out the door on Wednesday and will return to fill any orders on Monday.

Make sure you check out the First Friday Art Walk blog hop going on June 7-9, 2013.

And I’ll be posting on Sunday for Love My Art Jewelry blog for a bunch of cool wire suppliers that I come across while at the show.

For seeing things going on at the Bead & Button Show via social media look up #BNBSHOW via Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter & Tumblr.

I’m going to attempt to get pics of artists I know & their art beads this year when I take a break from selling & use #bnbshow and possibly another designating the art beads. You should too if you are going!

This is going to be SO much fun (although there is that mom side that is a bit heart wrenched leaving my munchkins for 5 days – ugh!)

I can’t wait until they are old enough to go with me to shows & don’t need my 100% attention if I ever decide to start back into traveling to sell my work (not necessarily for bead shows though).
