Thank you!

Thank you to all of my customers, both previous and new, who stopped by my booth at the Bead Blast 2010 this past weekend in Overland Park. I appreciated all of the wonderful comments and had a great weekend at the show. There is nothing that motivates and inspires me more to keep creating my handmade lampwork beads.

I am looking so forward to taking my tiny pieces of art to the Bead Renaissance Show in Dallas later in the month.

Until next time - smiles, Debbi

Spring Showers Bead

This is the bead I made for the April Showers bead challenge for the Fire Divas group.

The other set I listed is the one below that I gave a sneak peek of in my blog the other day, made with Double Helix Kronos, one of my favorite silver glasses.

Trying to keep up with photographing and listing a few new items on Etsy while frantically working on making beads for my shows coming up in May. I probably won't be listing many more until after the shows are over.

BTW, Tuxie, our cocker spaniel who had knee surgery is healing well. She still can't go for walks yet, but is starting to get onry again so we know she's feeling better!

I will be at the Bead Blast in Kansas City the first weekend in May, then a jewelry show in Belton, MO the next weekend, and headed to Dallas the last weekend in May.

I will get all of this up on my calendar by the end of the week.

Have a great week and until next time -
smiles, Debbi

New on Etsy and Sneek Peek!

Just listed a few new sets of beads on Etsy, but one of them sold so fast I didn't even get to the blog fast enough! Here's the one that sold:

And here's a link to one other that I just listed and here's a sneek peek of something I'm working on like the top pic, a design on the inside and the outside:

Gotta go, but until later - smiles, Debbi
