Thank you.

Thank you to everyone who came to the Hager Studios show yesterday.  We hope you had a great time.  If you missed the show, we kept three trays of Susan’s amazing work.  Stop in and take a look.

Jenn’s New Necklace- “The MB”

I just fell in love with this Dahlia focal bead by Turtle Soup Beads. I though that I wanted to stitch some kind of elaborate necklace. However, no matter what style I tried, it just did not do this flower justice.

After weeks of pondering what to do with it, I remembered a phrase my mother likes to say, “Simple techniques, but luxurious materials.” I put everything into this necklace: Turtle Soup Bead polymer clay beads, crystals, pearls, glass, and metal chain.

Once this necklace was complete, I realized that it was very much in the styling of our friend Michelle B. So, I named it in her honor.
