Letting go of my babies

My friend Diane Worthington is a talented lampwork bead maker, and jewelry designer. She sells her jewelry at the Orchard Artworks, where I sell mine. She sells her beads with her sister at bead shows under the name 2 Bead Sisters. In fact, before I knew her at the gallery, I was a customer! She and her sister generously offered to sell my beads at their booth at an upcoming Bead Show. This will be my first time selling my beads.

I have been very busy, enameling beads in an assortment of colors. I gave Diane a sandwich baggie full of beads last week. I failed to snap a photo of the beads, but let me tell you, it is a delicious looking multi-colored bag of beads. They look so yummy together, I could eat them!
Diane has been so supportive, and is also encouraging me to sell my enameled flowers. I'm not really comfortable selling the components. And, I'd have to figure prices for the different sizes, which could turn into a nightmare. So, Diane suggested that I sell my layered flower pendants. Hmmmm, I like that idea better. I did take some photos over the weekend. I'll be handing my babies over to Diane this week.

Here's the first group. These are all about 2 inches wide.
 And some closer shots...

 Here's the second group. These are all about 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 inches wide.
 And some closer shots...

If you live near Philly or Bucks County PA, it's the Innovative Bead Show being held at Ag Hall on the Delaware Valley College campus in Doylestown, PA. The show is June 22nd and 23rd.

I will also be at a table giving information about the Bucks County Bead Society, of which I am a member. Stop by if you're in the area!


  1. I can personally attest to the loveliness of your enameled flower pendants! They all look so beautiful. I'm sure your beads and pendants are going to be a success at the show.
