What a month it has been. I finally pulled the plug on my
old web host and moved my sites to a new one. I finally have
my e-mail back. Whew. If you have written and not received an
answer please write again. Thanks to everyone for their patience
during this mess.
In my last newsletter I was whining about a bead store here
in Santa Fe closing. The space has been rented and in a short
time "The Beading Heart of Santa Fe" will be open.
Happy days are here again!
Coop's friend was in town for three hours and took some
photos at Indian Market. If you click on "slideshow"
you'll see big photos. Here is a photo of one of my beading
heros, Marcus Amerman. I wish Dave had taken a photo of his
beadwork. Of course the next time I see Marcus I won't recognize
him. He looks totally different each time I see him. I think
he is a chameleon! You can see more of his beadwork at RAINMAKER
Native American Indian jewellery & art Bristol, UK. His entry this
year featured Buffalo Bill and the Indians in hiw wild west
show. The piece took 2nd place. Jamie Okuma took first place
in beadwork again. I haven't been able to find a photo of her
Till next time, bead well.
