Next weekend it is the Creativ Festival, for not just beaders but for all creative people. I will once again be there help Maria at the Rypan Designs' booth (#372).
The following weekend is the Toronto Bead Society's Bead Fair at the Toronto Reference Library. Maria is not going to be doing this show. I hope to stop by on the Sunday.
Of course the big show is Bead & Button Show in Milwaukee at the beginning of June. Maria will be there in her usual spot, booth #933.
To help her be ready for these shows I have been making some new samples for new designs and new colour palettes.
Here is the Ndebele Motif cuff. This is a new project that Maria is offering. I did two new colour combinations
|Teal, purple & cream|
|Grey, rose & cream|
I also played with new colour for the Maria's Beaded DNA bracelet. These did not photograph well. The colours look much better in person.
|Green and purple iris|
