Come Meet Duane Collins - This Saturday!

Hello!  We are very excited to announce that Duane Collins (Elements Pottery) is bringing all of his raku beads & pendants to Stony Creek Bead this Saturday, June 21st.

Duane just told us that he and his family are moving to Colorado at the end of this month.  While we are happy for him and wish him luck in his new adventure, we are sad to see such a talented artist leave Michigan. 

This may be your one and only time to meet the man behind the art, so we hope that you will stop in and say hello.

Until we see you on Saturday - Happy Beading!

Jenn & Sue
