Working non-stop for the ginormous Tucson Show. If you've never been, it's flippin' amazing! Overwhelming is an understatement. I've gone every year for ten years and I have never seen all of the shows going on. The entire town is taken over by gem and mineral (and bead!) dealers from around the world, lasting nearly a month. We will be at The Best Bead Show (www.crystalmyths.com) and also at The Manning House Mansion or The To Bead True Blue Show (www.tobeadtrueblue.com) The dates are between jan. 31 -feb.4 (check websites for details).
I'm tired, my hands ache and my eyes burn - and I still have hours of work to do! Yikes! Waxes are a pain in the ass to clean up for casting. We use dark red jewelers wax to make our shibuichi pieces- I will show a pic of how many I just finished, I was like a little machine! All worth it though. I love going out west, meeting my buddies and shopping for sparklies!
I have to get back to repairing waxes. These better cast right or I will yell till I pop!
This is a pic of our newest pieces, soon to be available! Frick, the amazing 30 lb. big-boned beast of a cat, and his nemesis, Azalea Belle in b+w.
