Stunning Rusty!

We've made up some lost time on the bead end of things, but we're still a little behind. Our little studio is getting ready for it's makeover and I forsee a lot of confussion in the weeks ahead. Of course all this will be going on during the remodel of the kitchen!

I'm more and more interested in the photographs that Rusty's been making available to the studio lately. This is just fantastic work! Rusty grabs the essence of the desert and caputres for all time the harsh cruelty and fantastic beauty that seeps through the pores of the desert floor and it's abundant wildlife.

I really need to get something up on the site for these photographs! Prints will be made available on the site soon, I promise!

Beads soon!

Things have been a little hectic around here of late. I'm wishing we could go back on vacation! But it looks to start calming down by this weekend and perhaps we'll get some beads made!

I'd like to let y'all know that we've grabbed up a new artist for the studio! Welcome Rusty Kimmel! You're going to be a fabulous addition to our little group here!

Rusty's been an artist for over 35 years, only recently choosing to go public with art. Rusty's photographs are wonderful and we're proud to offer them to the public at long last. Rusty has also worked recently in mosaic's and paints creating one of a kind masterpieces that will (unforunately) stay in the artist's collection.

The deal we've made with Rusty is that all photography will be run in extremely limited editions. The only exception will be the limited edition series books that we're still debating edition size on.

If there's something that really grabs you, grab it fast before it disappears forever!

We're Back!!!!

We had a lovely time of it! It rained buckets and I loved every minute of it. I really fell in love with the area and Mike and I are considering purchasing some land there. I managed to get some interesting photo's while I was there. I'll have some of them up on next months "revolving" front page of the website.

Our hosts were the very best and the trip was a fabulous success. We enjoyed every minute we were there. Everything went fab and I've had a few more requests to teach while we were away. Sadly, we had to turn some down. We like making beads and teaching eats at our bead making time.

Tahoe was a no go this trip as we've both had our fill of snow for the year. We detoured instead to Laughlin, Nv. and had a ball throwing money at the one armed bandits. We even managed to walk away with some! :0)

I hope everyone had a fabulous Easter!

We're off!

So, this will be the last post here until we return from our trip. We've gotten some fab colors in and we'll be playing with them on our return... Luckily for us we don't need to bring any of our own equipment with us on this trip. I am taking along my ACEO workings to play with, though!

If you've purchased beads/art from us, but haven't paid by midnight tonight, your beads or art will ship on our return. I hope everyone has a wonderful Easter and a fab Spring break!
