So it's up and down andup and down!
I'm not at all sure that I'll be doing many shows in 2013....I'm wait-listed at some (e.g., ACC Baltimore and Atlanta) and have been rejected (SIGH....SIGH) at others (e.g., Smithsonian, Germantown Friends (Philly area)). Many others still hang in the balance. Yet, I persevere.
I'll be heading over on November 30 to a Shop til You Drop event at a local women's health facility (Synergy) in Ellicott City. It's a local event, and should be fun. AND I'm prepping a few kits to upload to my website and a preparing for a few classes for down the road.
Above is an example of what I'm planning to be teaching.
It's half of a necklace that I hope to be teaching with a colleague (Robert Altschuler) at an art convening in April in Ohio......
We hope to soon announce its acceptance. It'll be a two-part series of classes--the rope is one; the clasp and focal is the other. Roberta does the rope (slither like a snake); I do the focal and clasp (bead like an Egyptian). Together, at the end of the two classes, participants will have produced Nefertiti's Necklace.
The other half is at the bottom of this post
The best news is that you don't have to know ANYTHING about beading to participate!
Between now and then, I get to make Thanksgiving, travel, bead, and plan to become a grandma! It's quite the roller coaster, nest ce pas?
This blog is where Thea Fine, Beading Design meets Fine WordCrafters (my writing/editing activities). I hope you find it a happy collision of my two artful worlds.
