What have you been working on this summer? Any jewelry with specifically Summer themes? We will be doing a show & tell of Summer Jewelry this September at our monthly meeting. You can highlight acrylics, Lucite, Bakelite & other summer-season oriented beads such as lampwork, mudbeads & powder glass. I'm sure sea- and conch shells fit the theme. Also, consider the colors of some of your pieces--do they reflect summer?
Bring your items to show and tell!
Join us Wednesday, September 2nd at 7 pm Pacific Time via Zoom.
Meeting ID: 899 883 2615

The Bead Society sponsored a trip to the Autry Museum a few years ago to see some amazing beadwork. It was the same day as the American Indian Arts Marketplace. It was great! We saw very interesting art, beadwork and jewelry from the vendors!
