Since we now have nearly 23 hours of daylight I will start a bead art piece using tons of tiny beads! This piece is approximately 9 inches by 12 inches. I spent one day getting the foundation together and drawing the basic outlines. I am using size 11/0, 13/0, 15/0, and the smallest so far are the size 22/0 vintage Italian “greasy” beads used on the birch trees Follow my progress, ask questions, leave remarks… it’s going to take awhile to complete this one. I plan to spend as many days outside enjoying our short summer as I can. I can bead on rainy days.

I love the feel of Ndebele chain. I won’t be doing it for a while after making 26 inches of it with size 11/0 seed beads… in white. She is kinda cute tho. She needs a name, ideas welcomed.
My latest bead art piece. This measures approximately 4.5 inches in diameter. I am having fun with this smaller size and all of the new Alaska animals I have gathered to play with.
Getting ready for summer. I will be one of the Artists in Cabin 13 again this summer. This is a small cabin in Pioneer Park, a lovely tourist stop in Fairbanks. The cabin is sponsored by Fairbanks Arts Association, artists bring in their work and man the cabin one day a week. It is a fun way to show/sell your art and meet new people. I will be there on Mondays all this summer, stop in and say “Hello.”
This is a piece I made for a juried show. Found out today that it has been accepted! I can’t wait for First Friday. It should be a great show.
Longer days means more critters. Glad for the extra light, wish it would get warmer.
