So much to do, so much to make, so many fun new beads to play with that I got in Oakland!!!!
The work of Lark Dalton at Olive Glass
has long been among my favorites, and Penny's as well. Lark and his wife Corrie are two of the nicest, neatest people you could hope to meet. I think Lark could carry on an informed conversation on ANY topic! He's a master of color and form as well, and has blown glass with some of the biggest names in the business!
Anyway, we had a real brainstorm moment and both brought home several pieces for new designs using Lark's work and our own. Can't wait to put these things together, but I had to order some findings to finish them up. Stay tuned, it will be worth the wait.
I will be showing at the SanAntonio Bead and Ornament Society's Bead Bazaar
May 5 and 6, and am excited to say that I'll have lots of new bead designs to show. Driving to and from Oakland was a great chance for Penny and me to brainstorm and we came up with some very fun ideas. Stay tuned, I'll blog them as they are finished.
Now, about that iguana. I think he enjoyed the bead show very much. He got lots of attention, as Penny and I took turns leading people down to Wayne's booth to show him off
. Wayne and I are talking about our next project together, and I'm thinking of making a few pieces for myself, to liven up my booth and possibly sell...heh, any excuse to bring home some of Wayne's beads, right?!
So now we wait and see if he will be accepted into the Bead and Button exhibition.
Or if he'll just have to steal the show from his perch in Wayne's booth!
