I have been busy working on projects for the book and for the Beadventure (www.beadventures.com) in Ireland in September. I finally finished the necklace called Macha. I am looking forward to returning to Ireland to see Cheryl and teach for Beadventure. My first trip to Ireland was with Beadventure some time ago so it is a special place for me.
I also just finished another project for the book called Artemisia. I know the earrings are large but I just love big earrings! They were inspired by the inlaid Cosmati floors found in the churches here in Italy.
Two classes are now on CraftEdu (www.craftedu.com) - Scepter Beads and Coin Pearl Earrings. More projects will follow for this online workshop website. Donna Kato has done a wonderful job putting this all together.
I am returning home tomorrow refreshed and with new ideas - can't wait to get in the studio!
Ciao for now!
