a few pix to keep my stitch friends interested!

This is Dad and I at our recent art showing at the local pottery shop.  Our little community has begun "first Friday art walks" and we had the good fortune to be asked to set up as artists in residence for the May art walk and the following month.  Dad has been my inspiration and solid force in life and continues to be.  He made glass lampwork beads and I made necklaces out of them.  The sign on the wall says "Art to Wear".  I made this in a CQ/found object fashion. 
These are a few of the necklaces with Dad's beads.  Guess I didn't take any close ups to share!  Will do that once the jewelry comes home.

  1. What a great photo Colleen! And, what super memories to share. Yes, please give us some close ups! Does your Dad have a website? It would be so cool to have one of his beads as a focal for a necklace!

    Sending hugs along!
