A Few New Beads

I've been a bit under the weather, but working on inventory for Bead and Button as much as possible. I hope you are enjoying your weekend, and thanks for peeking!

First Friday Art Walk at Indy Flame Art

I hope you will join us for First Friday at Indy Flame Art next Friday, May 6th from 6 - 9 PM.
Indy Flame Art has a new entrance. You will need to use the red double doors just to the right of the original single door entrance. You can't miss it....just follow the flames of the torch on our new mural!

We are so fortunate that the FAB Crew agreed to paint a mural for us on the outside wall of the studio. FAB stands for Fabulous Aeresol Brothers, and they are absolutely just that! These two artists have some amazing skills, and are talented beyond compare!

I have long admired street art and graffiti art. When we decided to paint our wall, we all agreed that a graffiti style wall would be perfect. We then met the FAB Crew, and after seeing their work, hoped they would agree to do their magic for us. And, it was magical!! Watching them work was priceless, and nothing less than amazing. I will let the pictures above speak for themselves.

THANKS to the FAB Crew for sharing your art with us!! You and your talents are so respected and appreciated! Check out their website and blog to see more of their work.

First Friday Focals

Above are a few demo focals from First Friday. We had a really great turn out! Thanks to everyone who braved the rainy weather to attend. It was great to see old friends, and meet new friends! (Great to see you Miss Marty - the middle bead is the one you watched me make)

I hope you are not tired of seeing the lapped butterfly focals, as I'm still having a lot of fun making them. I am trying to build inventory for the Bead and Button show.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend!
