For the love of swans.......


Swans are almost magical creatures, the way they float so effortlessly across the pond, their graceful stance and their soft white feathers make them seem like out of a fairy tale........... Here is a swan focal bead that reminds me of the watercolor illustrations in the fairy tale books I loved as a child. Enjoy!

Feels like Spring!


OK, so I know it's still February and there is snowfall across the continent still, but here in BC the sun has been shining for days and the weather is practically balmy! Petite crocus flowers are wiggling out of the earth and the air is full of birds playing in the sun. Feels like spring to me! Looking forward to the warmer months ahead, I am dreaming of the dragonflies that hum across the pool in summer........here is a bright and cheerful dragonfly - with many more to come soon!

Back in the Studio!


I have just returned from a fun-filled and sunny week in Arizona! I was there for a medieval event called Estrella War and had a wonderful time. The sun was shining almost every day and it's easy to see why so many Canadians fly south for the winter...I may be one of them in the future! This dragonfly bead has a background of fine silver foil encased with soft shades of amber and amethyst glass and has the same colors as those marvelous Arizona desert mountains! I'm looking forward to going back next year!

New Beads!


I've been busy in the studio as of late getting ready for the hectic show season ahead. I am going to Arizona on Sunday, Feb 8th and will return on Monday the 16th. I'm hoping the sun is shining as it's pretty cold here in BC! I have just listed some new beads in the store and will list more when I return. Thanks for dropping in!
