Check your Bucket List!

Lots of news to share! We are eagerly awaiting Lindly Haunani, who will be here for two weekend workshops--August 29th to the 31st and September 5th to the 7th. She's going to teach us all about tube beads, which is a very versatile bead shape we should all know more about. She is also going to do a survey of types of mokume gane, including her own Haunani-gane. The second weekend is full but there are still a couple spots in August if you want to jump in at the last second. Just call us at 404-314-5767 to sign up or ask questions.

Also, please note the new date for Ernie Hendrix' book making class. It's now on September 27th. We have a beautiful example for you to see, set up in the gallery. Once you see it, I know you will want to learn how to make your own. The class is only $85 and you will have a treasure to take home at the end of the day.

We're inundated with new stock in Filigree & More, our supply store. We have a new distributor with lots of new goodies. The biggest news is that this means we will continue to have Pardo clay. We still have a good supply even though a day doesn't go by without a box heading off to another eager clayer. We have tackled the issue of summer shipping by getting insulated bags and icepacks to care for the clay and thus far have shipped to Florida, California, Massachusetts, Arizona, Colorado......even Alaska! I'm forming lasting friendships with the post office personnel, and I've learned all about Regional USPS Box A shipping.
We're working on putting out wonderful gemstone beads and pearls, and we have special Ron Lehocky hearts for beaders so if you are looking for special cabochons to bead around or wire wrap, you need to come for a visit. We are often here on our "off days" so call  to see if we're here and come spend some time with us.
