Silver Glass Beads & Puppy...

Hi all, hope your November is going well so far, ours is good & busy. We got a new puppy from the shelter, her name is Mooshi Bella & she is a Shih-tzu Jack Russel or something mix, she is a shelter puppy, she is only two months old and she is so much fun & she wears mommy out so fast...good practice if all the baby making efforts payoff...

New Beads: I have new beads posted in my etsy shop, several new sets including some transparent green ruffle disks & some yummy new purple plum silver glass beads...check them out when you get a chance.

New Twisted Grace Icicle: Grace came up with this great idea of using the Jelveh Designs Key Mandrel to make twisted icicle ornaments, I named them Twisted Grace, they are so much fun, I will have a few up for sale in my shop by Tuesday morning...if you have questions about how to make them, send me an email...

Class Photos: A couple of week's ago I had two fun classes, thanks all for attending, here are some photos of the classes...
December Holiday Boutique: Graceful Studios will have its Annual Holiday Boutique on Sat Dec. 4th from 12-6pm, we will have tons of goodies for you to see and enjoy, I will also make some beads & blow some holiday ornaments & Twisted Grace Icicles, see you then...

New Tool: Last but not least, Grace & Frank have a brand new yummy tool for beadmakers, it the Jumbo Roll About Mashers, check them out, they are very cool...I love using this tool...

The winner of the last blog bead is Ginny C. of FL.  The current blog giveaway bead is shown above, it is one of my splat beads that actually I believe Ginny helped name this style of bead for me years ago, this one comes in earthy tones of blues & sage, its lovely and large, enter to win it by making a comment on this blog or sending me an email...

Thanks for stopping by...life is good & busy....

Peace

HI
How are you? I gotta say I love those Icicles and the blown Xmas ornaments. I got some of those hole in the side mandrels for blowing vessels, about 2 years ago and still haven't used them. so i am going to try and make the blown ornaments.Thanks for the inspiration.

Thanks so much Nancy, long time no hear girl, come by the studio on December 4th for the holiday Boutique...

Hey Penny, Thanks girl, not sure what you mean about hole in the side mandrels, the only ones i know that have holes on the side are for hollow beads, the vessels and ornaments are made on hollow tube mandrels, send me an email, lets talk about this more...

Interesting fact silver made in Thailand is only made in villages outside of the main cities by Hilltribe families. Most patterns have been in there family for many years and can only be made by large order. There are no stores or one central place to purchase Hilltribe silver in variety other than from the large wholesale shops in the city. Mondays and Fridays are the days families will bring their goods to the main shops for sale and to pick up new orders. A trip to a silver village is a real eye opener to see how families work together to make beautiful silver pieces of art. All Handmade.

Pretty beads. The colors and pattern in the giveaway bead are a close match to the new dress I just ironed less than five minutes ago.
