Bead Fest Update and Coupon

Thanks for bearing with me and my computer issues - I have a new computer, but lost my contacts, photos, etc. for the time being (after Bead Fest I will be visiting with Geek Squad!).  I wanted to give you all a sneak peek of the beads coming up at Bead Fest (booth #463 A) and a discount coupon for admission!

There are only four of this type of bead so far, and probably that will be all because I simply don't have the time it takes to make them!
 I have lots of hand-formed hearts that I am really proud of!
 Lots of ammonite cabochons, plus some arty ones as well!
 I will have many focals like these, as well as small sets of three and singles of this new style of bead!  I really love these as well.
 More hearts!
 Round beads, in fabulous enameled colors that almost look like ceramic beads!
 Lots and lots of chicklets!
 Here are the sets of three of this new style of bead.
 Lots and lots of headpins - singles and pairs!  I really got into making these and hope you like them!  They are made on 20 gauge copper wire, and have been kiln annealed, so they are very flexible for your designs and are 4 inches long, so you can do lots with these!
 Here's a printable coupon for Bead Fest - since they are charging admission again this year, this will save you $10 off your admission, making it only $5.  Please print it out to save yourself some money and buy more beads!
I hope you enjoy all my new designs for this year - I feel they are considerably different than my work last year and I hope you love them all!

See you at Bead Fest - in a week!!!!  Booth #463A - SueBeads

Oh my such lovely beads!!! I have never been to any show like this as it is just too far away.

Best of luck, but with those fantastic beads I don't think you will need luck.

Art Elements February Theme Challenge - Birds of Prey

Cathy Mendola chose Birds of Prey for the theme this month, and it's a pretty awesome theme. You are going to see some amazing work by my team members and the guests who have participated this month! I had plans of doing more than I did, as indicated by the purchases I made for the projects I had in my head. However, I have been doing some work in my house, so whenever time permitted, meaning after work and weekend hours, we were pretty much doing the room renovations. One of them is going to be my study/studio, and I seem to be foiled at every move by trying to get some work tables. So I have only one small project to show you this month.  But first, the purchases!

This first Bali carved owl totem I got from fifirosedesigns on etsy - I wanted to make a mold and make my own cabochon to use in a necklace. However, I really did get around to doing that. So, I purchased the owl heads below.

These owl head cabochons are from ArtisticVariations84 on etsy - they are just fantastic, but …

January Art Elements Theme Challenge - Moon

Lindsay Starr chose moon as the theme for the AE Design Challenge this month! Great choice, Lindsay! I knew I had a pendant from Vincent and Nooma from Inviciti that I wanted to use, and I have some moon face polymer clay cabochons I had made a while ago, so I was all set!

First, I used the pendant to create a simple necklace. I haven't strung beads in a very long time, and being that I enjoy simple designs for myself, I set out to find the perfect red beads. I chose faceted red jade from Golden Age Beads.  I also spied some other beads I really want, but am basically on a buying freeze so....maybe another time! I separated the red jade beads with some cute titanium spacers I had picked up at a bead show a long time ago, and I highlighted the pendant with some gold alcohol ink to make the moon show up better!



The second piece I made was influenced by Game of Thrones. Late to the party as ever, I just started watching it. I'm on Season 3 Finale - I use it as a carrot to make my…
