My Tucson Neighbors

Okay, I found my camera.  Here's what I was promising ...

This is Judy and Fran of Class Act Designs.  They make the most beautiful hand-dyed silks for bracelets, necklaces ... what have you!  What nice neighbors to have across the aisle from me.



But look at what stared me down!  OMG!  These are absolutely beautiful ... and look so much better when the white balance of your camera is set properly! :-) Very soon you'll see what I mean because I purchased a wholesale order from the girls and will be bringing these to you online.  You should have been there to experience the fun Judy and I had pairing my enamel beads with their silks.  Gorgeous combinations!  I can't wait.  Their "Spring Fling" with my Bitter beads ... gorgeous! But that's only one example!




Who is this handsome devil at the Painting with Fire Artwear booth?  Why, it's none other than David Lewis looking like some corporate executive making a high-powered deal! Yes, he is indispensable ... to me at least!  David has been wonderful!  Besides knowing his business ... by that I mean how to enamel beads with the expert skill of a drummer/guitarist (can you imagine the fine motor control!), he's adept at creating color combinations.  He's the originator of the Candy Cane beads that so many of you liked at Christmas.  I'm very proud of David ... actually it's more like I'm very dependent on David! LOL  Shh! don't tell anyone, but his nickname is the "Master Beader." (Don't think too hard on that one.  Good thing he doesn't read my blog!)




Tomorrow I have more treats in store for you when I introduce more of my neighbors ... and the Tawny Frog Mouth!  Don't miss it ... it's a "HOOT!"  Love to you all!

I'm loving those hand dyed silks, especially the muted blue one on the upper right, will be watching for them. You are right that it's good David doesn't read your blog!

Looks like you are having a wonderful time in Tucson. Lovely ladies with hand dyed silks to compliment your beautiful beads! David looks like he is formulating some fabulous new idea with beads! Happy Tucson Bead Show...

It is so nice to have good neighbors when doing a show. I love the silks..gorgeous with your beads! You can tell your CEO David there are other folks that certainly could use his help...I think she lives in Tenn.
