Now that the weekend is over and it's Monday again - I'm sure you're planning for the next weekend already - yes!? Well... I will be showing my work at the "Taste of Tanasbourne" in Hillsboro, and it looks to be a great event.
I will be showcasing some of my newest color stories for the summer (my newest favorite piece is my large hoop earrings in Sunset Blvd)! I hope that all in the Portland area can make it out to see me. It will be three days of music, food and art all in one place and all outdoors so that you can enjoy the beautiful summer weather!
The organizers of this show have also provided a discount to all those that know about someone showing there - so download your coupon for a reduced entrance fee!
Of course with all this fantastic summer weather here in the Pacific Northwest, I am constantly inspired to create new color stories or seek out new colors when I can. I have been working with these tiny seed beads for over 10 years so, it can be difficult to find new colors that I want to use in my work... but, I always seem to find them - or perhaps they find me... I'm not sure after all this time...
So my newest blues are (from bottom to top) "cloud", "tidal", "delphinium", and a soft, matte finish green called "clover". I also found some new warm tones (from bottom to top): "apricot", "green tea" and "dandelion" - I can't wait to make some of these gorgeous yellow beads! It took me awhile to find this opaque and shiny finish yellow - a truly saturated color.
Anyway, thank you to ALL my customers - I couldn't do this without you - and I hope to see many of my Portland regulars there... I hope you enjoy your summer no matter where you are or what you're doing! I know I am!
