Life is good!

Oh my, oh my have I been a busy girl! I've been a writin' articles and submittin' pictures and this past two weeks, my time has been taken up with the Fire & Rain Kobe Japan exhibit preparations. Kobe and Seattle are sister cities and we've been asked to submit beads for a two-month exhibit and a "necklace" for permanent dispay. Can you imagine wrangling 38 artists to send beads in on a schedule? We managed to do it. I think we are sending over 300 beads from artists like Michael Barley, Larry Brickman, Larry Scott, Kimberly Affleck, etc., etc. The list goes on. People with lesser-known names and spectacular talent participated as well. Look for more info about this cool project soon. I'll post pictures when I'm finished editing them.

Let's see, what else? Well, the electroforming bath has been quite full lately. Here's the ring I talked about in my previous post. What do you think? I'm quite taken with it! I am expecting the materials to be able to electroform with silver sometime this week. I suspect that I won't have time to switch over and try it until next week sometime but I promise to post the results.

I don't write a lot about my personal life - because, well, glass makes up a lot of it! Suffice it to say, things are great. I'm going to see Jaime Cullum tonight with my sweetie and some good friends. We're going to see Train later this month and I'm taking a great silversmithing class in Victoria, Canada. Then there's the trip to Frantz Art Glass for their open house next weekend, and, and - the list goes on!

Have a great March - I'll check in soon!
