Blog Hop Day 5

Today's gift is Pearls, Pearls, Pearls!
 A beautiful selection of tiny, medium, keshi and dagger pearls for you to play with! I learned that many people prefer not to have their email address on a public blog. So, I will announce the winner's name on December 15th's blog and give you 24 ours to email me so I can get an address to send your package to. All of my contact info is on my website.

 Mastering the Curl at The Bouncing Bead in La Mesa
 "The Curl Girls" Naomi, Maggie, Maggie and Gretchen! Their colors were so beautiful. Each Curl from Mastering the Curl will be radically different from each other because of color and size differences each student chose. Mastering the Curl was added to the schedule because these students wanted to have this class.
 
Naomi, the two Maggies and Gretchen

These four women have been beading and knitting together for years. They went next door to Two Sisters and Ewe to shop for yarns before the Curl class started. I love that there is a creative center here in La Mesa with the bead shop, yarn shop and a dichroic glass store all in a row! What a fun day we had yesterday. By request of these four bead crazed women, we will add "La Femme Spirit" to the schedule in February or March. This is a two day class. Calendars have to be opened and we will announce the date as soon as we've made a choice. I will keep you posted on the date so you can attend as well.

  1. I think I see teeny tiny seed Pearls in there!! I have never actually had seed Pearls, and I just found out about them recently but I am dying to get my hsnds on some of them! I just adore teeny tiny beads, crystals, pearls...anything that's teeny tiny!

    But the entire collection of goodies that you have picked out for this giveaway are awesome! Thanks for the love!

    I love La Femme Spirit pendants! The colors in both of those are stunning! What a great design!

  7. Looks like the ladies are having a good time. I wish I could find classes near home, but sadly we're kind of in the middle of a creative no-man's-land here. Try as I might I've yet to meet a local crafter of any kind, not that I have a lot of time to socialize with two younger kids and a baby due any day now!

  14. The pendants are wonderful and those pearls are gorgeous. Seed pearls are actually smaller -- I have an antique piece from my great-aunt and it is covered with seed pearls. I personally think the person went blind after doing the piece, it is so fine!
