My Beads are Calling

By Su  //  Studio Updates  //  Comments Off on My Beads are Calling

It’s been a long winter of geekery and web development for Sü this year.  I feel the calling of the beads and fabric big-time these days.  Thanks to all who have patiently waited for their custom order items. Now that these orders have been hammered out, it’s time to start working on more jewelry for the festival season. It’s been a while since I’ve actually vended, so I’m really looking forward to having a booth again.  I’ve got a brand new vending canopy and tent to boot! So far I’ve got dunegrass all set, and will be running down the list to see what other venues look like fun. The gallery circuit may have to wait.  It’s time for me to have more fun in the sun in 2010.

At some point, I’d like to expand my territory to beyond MI again.  Sometimes I really miss the vagabond tour-head lifestyle, but do love the michigan scene as well.  Floyd Fest and Ridgestock would be really cool to attend because I’d be able to spend time with far away friends and family. 😉

I’m SO ready for my new supplies! I checked the tracking and the order is in NY presently. I hope the package arrives before the weekend. For now, get a sneak peak of my mini bead studio nook in the kitchen. Leaf bought me a cute little eeepc for my Birthday! I’m still deciding which flavor of linux to install on it. 😉 This will be a nice tool for doing research on the go. The thing is almost small enough to fit in my purse!

Studio Updates

I recently made friends with the owner of a gemstone and mineral supply company in India.  I was sent several images to peruse and put together my order.  Coincidentally this happened  just in time for a month of beading to precede my featured artist showing at the White River Gallery in Montague.  It’s kind of neat to have a chance to meet the folks shaping and forming the gorgeous specimens I will be working with.  The list of items displayed here are: Tibetan Turquoise,  Sea Blue Larimar, Brazilian Amethyst, hand cut & faceted Lemon Chrysophrase, Blue Topaz, Green Amethyst and Tibetan Fluorite to name a few.  If you are interested in contacting Alif International, you may email or instant message at: [email protected]

New specimens are on their way!

Awaiting new supplies!
