Stay Warm and Do Beadwork

Dear friends, I hope your New Year is off to a great start! We received quite a lot of snow here in Boston so I have been staying in and doing beadwork! I have also added a few new items in  The Lone Beader’s Boutique on Zazzle. Check out my new Lone Beader Definition slouchy t-shirt and hoodie dress! I have had this ‘definition’ posted on my website for over 10 years now. After reading many comments and emails, I have realized that many of you can relate..

February 18 – March 10, 2016.

Presented at University Place Gallery…124 Mt. Auburn St. Cambridge MA 02138.

Opening reception: Thursday, February 25, 6-8pm.

Closing reception: Thursday, March 10, 6-8pm.

“The exhibit will have a refreshing range o diversity in techniques, as well as a strong common denominator: playful, colorful imagery that falls in a mid-point between abstraction and reality, often touching on fantasy while retaining a grounding in reality. All of the artists use – and alter-  life imagery as a springboard to express their views.”

Hours: Monday through Friday 9:00am to 6:00pm  •  Saturday 9:00am to 1:00pm

Take the T to Harvard Square..
Free and Open to the Public. Hope to see you there!

Afghan Hound Beaded Earrings:)

Dear friends, I would like to show you my latest design – beaded Afghan Hound sterling silver drop earrings! These match the beaded Afghan Hound pin pendant which is listed in my Etsy and Amazon Handmade shops.. This pair sold almost immediately, so they are now listed as made-to-order with several different color options. Do you like them? 🙂

Also, I am thrilled to announce that I have finally reached 700 sales in my Etsy shop! (This may have something to do with the fact that my shop has been mentioned on French website madmoiZelle.com.) I plan to celebrate all next week by going on vacation. Both of my shops will remain open for business, but please keep in mind that beadwork orders will not be filled until the week of February 15, 2016. If you have any questions or custom order inquiries, please use the Contact form anytime, and I will get back to you as soon as possible:)
