Ligonier Ice Fest and Allegory Gallery

Last weekend was the Ligonier Ice Fest - I took this as a sign that I should go and visit Andrew Thornton at his new location for his bead store, Allegory Gallery.  He happened to be having a show called "Fathom" so it was perfect timing.

The hallmark of the Ice Fest is, of course, ice scupture. 
There were ice scuptures all along the diamond, and also in front of several businesses who sponsored them.
Many shops were open late to accommodate the crowds.
It was cold but it was a very nice afternoon for ice!
Here's Andrew at his new location for his bead store.  It's very nice and cheerful!
He had a gallery opening Saturday night, called "Fathom".  Mermaids abounded!  If you click on the photo you'll see works by his sister, Cynthia, Diane Hawkey, and Junker Jane, to name a few.
After we visited with Andrew, we went into Greensburg and had a great dinner at J Corks.  All in all an awesome day off!

Art Elements Theme of the Month - January - Use Your Stash

Usually I'm so much better about the January Use Your Stash Challenge (hosted by Lindsay Starr this time), but this year, time is just not my friend. Between the holidays, going away on vacation, and getting back to work and trying to make new beads, there's just not a lot left in me at the end of the day.  But I did manage to get this pair of earrings made using Inviciti heart charms, some new metal spacer beads I just got, and some titanium hematite beads picked up at a Bead Fest here and there! I really like them, mostly because they are simple and hearts are my thing!  Check out what everyone else made! Thanks for stopping by!
