A FUN NEW AFRICA ALBUM IS UP ON THE SITE..CLICK HERE!!
This was a fun little demo to photograph to show you just one example
of the process some of my vacation “finds” go through before I even get
to play with the beads in design work.
I thoroughly enjoy every step taken in preparing the beads to use as this
“hands on” cleanup brings me all that much closer to the maker of the beads.
Be sure to take a moment to check out this website below to see how the beads
are made BY HAND by the women in Africa.

Thanks for sharing. What an interesting process, and what a beautiful end result. I love the bracelet you have also.
Looks like you are having fun creating new African necklaces, Im sure they will all be gorgeous!!!

THANKS Sherrie!!!! I am having a blast but just wish I could do jewelry 24/7!!! I have never had such a hectic year but manage somehow to fit a few hours a day into my glass and design work.
BTW..Akoya is looking just adorable! What a beautiful head that little puppy has
I hope that he holds together, if you will be at the Vancouver Shows next month you can meet him, he is MR. I love you to everyone…
