The Studio Tour has come and gone…and was a wonderful success. There was opportunity to meet new people, as well as recognize some returning faces.
I think my beadwork went over rather well. A couple of sales, and a LOT of admiring. I started telling people they really had to pick the pieces up – what looked hard and spiky was really very fluid and soft. Something you can’t tell just by looking.
The dinner raffle went well, with quite a number of folks visiting all eight studios – that was the key, you have to visit each studio and have your ticket signed in order to be entered to win. There were four $25 gift certificates, some to swanky local eateries, others to places not so off the beaten path.
Then it was on to the Memorial Weekend. In the states this is a time to remember those in the military who have fallen in defense of our country. This is also traditionally the start of Bar-B-Que season, and BBQ we did.
Weather cooperated by being warm and sunny. There were steaks and veggie burgers on the grill. GrandMeow flew in from Sandy Eggo. A good time was has by all.
Now, that shiny little bobble in the window? That’s another brooch, with a cabochon from Weir Studios. The stone is a very vivid, deep red with silver highlights. I opted to keep the bright theme going by using neon pink beads to form the bezel, then accented the edge with some clear grey teardrops. This piece makes me smile every time I see it.
