Busy making some gourd necklaces for Sierra Art Trails, the first week-end in October... Catalogs out soon. Love making these little spirit gourd jewelry pieces. Each one tells me a story and what saying or beads it might like woven into the knotless netting of their bodies.
Don't forget to order your copy of " Showcase 500 Beaded Jewelry, by Lark Publishing. Hours of creative ideas.
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.
