I've been a busy little beader lately. I did volunteer work for Indian Market this year and had a great time. I got to see the prize winners and was totally blown away by the beadwork. I have some blog enries about the experience.Love-2-Bead blog There are some fabulous photos of beadwork as well as other art work in Ann Murdy's galleries here and here.

I've been working on some new patterns. I love making patterns! Several people have mentioned wanting amulet purse patterns so I have the first e-Book ready. It's called Celtic Knot Amulet Purses. The patterns can also be used for small necklaces.

Enjoy the eye candy and until the next time, bead well.

Cindy Spalding wrote me that she used Fireline (6#, fused) for her Really, Really Round Flat Peyote pieces. She said it eliminated the need for taping and anchoring. Thanks for the tip Cindy!

Gil Reynolds' son Lee had to have a heart transplant. The glass community is having an auction for him. There are some interesting items in the auction that you might be interested in. Gil Reynolds is one of the nicest people you could ever hope to meet and the BEST fusing teacher I ever had.
