Picking up Corina....

Well I had hoped I would have some time to list some beads by today, but I ran out of time sometime a month ago & have not been able to catch up with it since...today I am off to the airport in about an hour to pick up Corina Tettinger for her teaching visit to our studio & town. Graceful Customs Studios is happy & lucky to be having her teach here & I am so excited that after many years of talking to Corina on the phone & email we finally get to meet...The first two day class Corina is teaching on Sat & Sun 24th & 25th is full, the second class she is teaching on Wed & Thurs the 28th & 29th of this month has 2 spaces left...let me know if you want to join this class...

The beads above are both for giveaway this week, two people will win, one each, I pick who gets what, but you can try & let me know why you should get the one you want, enter to win them by making a comment on my blog...I made them while teaching class in Turkey at the awesome Glass Furnace.

The Photos below are of the studio all polished & ready to go, Grace & her hubby did such an awesome job getting the place together & have gone all the way with the new torches, glass & venting systems, not to mention all the yummy foods & goodies Grace has placed in the studio...if you are in area & would like to visit send me an email, we are located at 10730 Center Ave, in Gilroy.

I will try & list some yummy beads I have made both in Turkey & here since I have back in the next few days when I get a chance, but it will be late in the night when I have a chance so we shall see if sleep is more important...lol

Thanks for stopping by...Life is good...

Jelveh, you are the busiest person I know, do you ever stop moving? The new studio is awesome, I so wish we had something like that here in our area, you are very blessed. I wanted to comment on the beauty of the two focal beads you made in Turkey but I really don't feel like I should win one of them, someone else should. I was lucky enough to guess where you were and won the last giveaway. I believe in sharing, however, they are soooo beautiful! I hope you get rested and back on your schedule.
Peace and love,

That studio looks like a dream come true! How wonderful!
What a treat to finally meet and work with Corina! I know both of you must be excited about her classes.
Great give away beads---as usual!

The giveaway beads are beautiful. Both are lovely, but I like the oval shaped bead the best.

You are one busy lady! That studio looks so neat and CLEAN. Wish mine looked like that. Have fun with Corina. Her beads are wonderful.
I love your give aways. Especially the long one with the bluish greens. It almost looks like a rib cage. I know why I should win it. I think I won Septembers give away, but never got it. I think it got lost in the mail :( or maybe my mailman is a thief :P
Loving the pictures and can't wait to see the new beads on Etsy!!!

The class is going really well, Corina is an awesome teacher and I am having fun being her beck and call girl...and the students are having fun too...first day went great and over time, we started at 10 and finished around 7:30, had dinner and came back for more...

Hey Nancy, email me your address again & point me to the right bead that you won, sine I was gone most of Sept and now October I may still have your bead in my box...just so tired right now to figure it out and I am sorry you have not gotten it yet girl...
life is good...

Hi Jelveh,
The studio is amazing. I hope you and Corina have a great time together. As always, both beads are wonderful. They both look like prehistoric aquatic creatures. Even though I already have several of your beads, I don't have one in this style. I'd be proud to own either, but the amber one with swirls is my favorite.
