Spring cleaning in a bead studio

Oh the joys of Spring … new plants peeking up after a long hibernation,  the sun warming my face and shoulders as I work outside, and … spring cleaning!  I tend to get really excited about the first two…  not so much the cleaning part!  As the sun has made a glorious appearance the last few days here in the Pacific Northwest, I’ve been planting new color spots in my yard and sprucing up the deck and BBQ.  Now, I don’t get the fresh little plant seedlings  and sun in my bead studio but Spring has definitely...

A little walk down memory lane…

As I was working away in my studio this past week, I was suddenly struck by a memory from my childhood that completely caught me off guard!   I was working with wire and coaxing it to cooperate into a pair of earrings when I suddenly flashed back to a warm,  sunny afternoon in southern  California.
