Tucson Bead Show
About six months ago my parents announced that they were going to Arizona. They offered to take me with them for the entire month of February. I gave this some real thought, as I don't take many vacations. I have many commitments here at home, including a family as well as an exchange student from Korea living with us. And then there is our small pooch, Daisy.

After many supportive discussions with my husband, I decided to go to Arizona and to the Tucson Bead Show. I had no idea that Tucson boasts over 30 shows being held through the city of Tucson the first two weeks in February. Thirty!! Am I the last jewelry creator to know this? Perhaps, but I am taking full advantage of being in town at that time. I will take a two day Photoshop and Photography class by Doug Baldwin who is a professional jewelry photography artist. This will be followed by a two day teacher certification class on torch enameling metals with Barbara Lewis using her Painting With Fire technique. I look forward to sharing all of this with you on this blog upon my return in March.
New Tutorial!!I have just completed and posted my 4th tutorial: Lotus Petal Fringe Earrings. My first three tutorials are: 1. Patterning Metals with the Compact Rolling Mill, 2. Two Sided Patterned Puff Heart Pendant 3. Hinged Wire Woven Earrings. The Lotus Petal Fringe Earrings can be found on my Etsy site by clicking this link Click Here to Wired Lotus Etsy

I then write step by step instruction with every turn and twist of the wire used to create the earrings. The photos are matched up
I do hope that you are all staying warm and cozy in your homes. If you are in a warmer climate, please send the Midwest a little of that in a bottle. We would give you many thanks.
