....Spring, bring it on!

The weekend BrisStyle markets held in Hamilton over the weekend were an amazing success. I was thrilled to be part of this team and to finally meet some of the on-line friends I've been talking to over the past few month.
I am not a regular market seller, in fact these were my first! My son Alexander came along to be my helper for the day and together we enjoyed the hustle and bustle of the day. The photo below shows the constant stream of people making their way through the church hall.

The other photo I've posted today is of a large focal bead I have made to be part of an exhibition that will celebrate "primavera"on this year. The focal bead measures around 3.5cm in width and features beautiful and delicate butterfly murrini, hand made by an American glass artist Ryan. I am getting ready for several "Spring celebrations" to be held in a few months time and this work be be part of the floral collections. It feels strange to be making beads and jewellery with flowers or that have floral themes to them when in fact I'm still making metallic and winter style beads! Keep warm - ciao for now - Liz.
