Flower Tut is Finally Finished!

I finally got it done and ready to sell in my etsy shop- a tutorial about making four different kinds of glass flowers- a lily or star flower, an aster, a simple iris and a fancy lady's slipper orchid. So here's the link to that:

A Surprise Publication

Yesterday I was making my way through the new books at the library, when I saw a book called Earrings, Earrings, Earrings pulished by House of White Birches books. As I was flipping through it to see if I needed to check it out, I flashed by a pair of earrings. And then I went to that page again- there was something about those beads.....
Thanks to a wonderful jewelry maker named Ishita Ghosh, there were a pair of earrings and a matching bracelet using a few of my 'earthy' style beads- a very short- lived phase in my bead making history. Ishita bought some beads form me a couple of years ago, after we connected thanks to an article about her on the Artbeadscene blog. These are the beads she purchased

Here's Ishita's website, so you can see some more wonderful examples of her work:
Here's a link to the actual piece that was in the publication:
Thanks to everyone involved for this!
