Beads and More Beads
Our little Historic Village in Coarsegold, Hwy. 41 & 415, has tents with venders set up most week-ends.. Gary, our bead buddy, has a regular booth, among several other venders... You can find a great variety of goodies from rusty items, to old saddles, pots, pans, and yard ornaments... But my favorite are these luscious looking beads.
Gary is there daily, if you are visiting Yosemite, be sure and stop at our little Village area..Tell him, Vivian sent you.... I have lots of beads, and rusty yard "art" supplied by Gary.
I am a mixed media fiber/quilt artist who loves to work with gourds,and jewelry. I am easily distracted with the next project, and have many going at one time. I have been teaching Fabric Dyeing and Beginning gourd art for many years. I am blessed with my own home studio. We live in the rolling hills near Yosemite National Park, in central Calif. U.S.A. This is a place of Inspiration, Blue Skies and Great Friends. I volunteer with several organizations,and have memberships in P.E.O., Coarsegold Historical So., Sierra Art Trails, Madera Circle Gallery, Yosemite Western Artist, Timberline Gallery and Sierra Mountain Quilters. I teach at my home studio and at local quilt gatherings.
