Hi there! Still in NY, here is the cloud castle bead finished, I think it looks good, hopefully it will cast nicely. I have a bird head and hand bead on the (makeshift)work table, Im silly to think I can complete them in one day.
We just came back from dinner with friends of Andrews, owners of the amazing restaurant Pangea. The food is great, the surroundings elegant and the company couldn't have been more entertaining. I highly suggest the flourless chocolate cake. We may go back tomorrow, although the schedule is pretty booked. We are going to get a nice strong dose of art at the Guggenheim(?) then the childrens museum, more culinary adventures, then who knows what?

I love the castle bead! Can't wait to see the finished result. Will you be at Bead & Button this year?

The castle bead is great! I have a clay sculpture of houses all piled next to each other on a small piece of a branch with a tiny staircase and little windows, etc. It was made in Cusco, Peru and I picked it up at a flea market when I was a teenager, I've never seen anything like it until now ;-).

I saw BeadStyle magazine at the bookstore today. Do you know that there is a spread on a new book called Junk to Jewelry that features GGS charms? You can see a photo of the necklace on the website on the page for the current issue.

Thanks for coming! You guys were such a pleasure to have. I had so much fun. You guys will have to come up again sometime and we'll do all the things that we didn't get to do this trip.

Thanks for the comment on my blog. I'm glad you saw the similarities. I hope you'll make an announcement when the castle bead is up for sale. I want to buy one, and maybe more.

That is a BEAD???? Wow. I'd probably purchase one, too. Are you taking orders?? LOL.
