Well, I know mom and I have been away for a bit - was a little busy with a conference I attended at the beginning of the month and then an enameling weekend at Thompson Enamel and of course we are getting ready for a show this weekend - busy, busy, busy. I do plan on sharing what happened at the conference and the weekend at Thompson but first I thought I would share an update on the Bead Soup Blog Party.
Mom and I found out who are partner is - Genny from Florida. She teaches a lot of different jewelry techniques in Florida - mostly chainmaille. She is also an RN. Mom and I are so excited to be partnered with her this time around.
Here are the goodies we received from Genny:
Mom and I have the cookie trays out and have already laid out several ideas. What I love about the cookie trays is that we can go in at anytime and move things around until we have the pieces perfect and ready to string. I can't wait until we can share with you the final creations!
This weekend was a cleaning the garage/studio, finding all the inventory that needed to be repaired and laying out final pieces to assemble for the show this coming weekend.
Last year - due to wind - some of our pieces were chipped or cracked when they were knocked off the display table. So, we tore the pieces apart so I could throw them into the kiln to repair them. These are the pieces that had to be done. Now just have to put everything back together.

Since I was repairing I thought I would enamel a few earrings and two pendants.
Here are two pendants I also got enameled. I am showing you the front and back side of the pendants. I was trying two of the techniques I learned at the enameling weekend at Thompson.
So, that is what mom and I have been up to. I will try and type up blog posts this week about Vegas and Thompson Enamel.
