It has been a very busy month. First off to Tucson for a week exploring the many Gem Shows.
After we returned from Tucson my husband and I helped my parents move from Centralia, WA to Portland, OR. Fortunately they are now settling into their new home and we can now get back to our studios!
So I am a bit behind on my Feb. Bead Journal Project. I hope to have it posted by mid March.
The necklace above was just completed using antique shell buttons and Japanese Aiko beads.
It will be displayed at The Oregon State Button Show booth March 6 & 7 at The Palmer Wirfs Antique Show , Portland Expo Center. More info can be found at:
If you are in the Portland area it is definitely worth checking out. The Button Society will have a beautiful display of buttons to check out!
