Today was the start of our annual Studio Art Tour for this area. A great weather day and always good to talk all day about Art and Bead Creating.
The layered look is very in right now, and really anything goes. Mix chunky beads with delicate chains. Mix lengths and textures. The Peruvian is a great layering piece, as is the Scallop Wrap. Another fantastic combo is the Cloak & Dagger with the Ritzy. I love the Cloak & Dagger in Cobblestone and the Ritzy in Steel. The combo has great neutral tones, and makes a statement without being overwhelming. As our new kits are introduced, you'll notice longer lengths. This is a fabulous opportunity to mix the old with the new. I know I always get stuck in...
Knot Just Beads hosted by Kim and Rob was a fun show. It was held in Greenfield Community Center and what a great day. Though Packers played we still had a wonderful turnout of Green and Gold bead enthusiasts attend. I plan on coming back. Also something I thought was a nice addition were a couple of textile / fiber vendors. Me, being a textile person as well, loved the addition. Thanks Kim and Rob and all those wonderful customers "old and new"!
