2011 Northumberland Studio Tour

I am very excited to announce that I have been accepted to show my bead work on the 2011 Northumberland Hills Studio Tour, September 10th and 11th …a tour filled with great artists in some of the prettiest towns in Ontario …


Please visit my new bead page …with its link to the tour web site… containing maps and more information about the other artists.

Over the next month leading up to the tour, I will be posting more articles about Chinese beads. Hopefully, I will be able to answer some of your questions in person!

    I love the carved beads. I bought earrings on ebay that I learned were ancient carved beads from a chinese hat. They look like
    oriental turquoise and are hollow.
