Bits of News

Just a couple of bits of news to pass on:

(1) Andrew Thornton of Green Girl Studios is having his own version of Kate McKinnon's soul cleaning sale (indeed, shouldn't we all?). It started yesterday and will run for the next two weeks. You can check out Andrew's blog here: and follow the link to his sale page. So far, he has been offering quite an eclectic assortment of beads and rings and beautiful things.

(2) If you are in the Toronto area and are looking for something to do this weekend, the fall Bead Oasis show is on at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. You will find all the details here:

Be sure to swing by and visit the Toronto Bead Society booth if you go. You will also find there are lots of amazing bead vendors there, selling their wares, including lampwork artists Karen Elmquist, AirWynn Glass Designs and Susan Stortini to name just a few of my favourites. Irene and Ken of Iguana Beads will also be there, as will the gang from Beadfx, you'll want to check out each of their booths for beads and findings for sure. And you should stop by and say hello to Dwyn, who is working at the Nortel booth on Saturday, let her sell you some glass or a torch.

I am taking the liberty of posting this photo of one of Karen's latest lampwork vessels, is it not the most exquisite thing you have ever seen??
