Bead Fest Santa Fe
March 15, 2010
It’s that time again and I’m off to Santa Fe. New Mexico is one of my favorite places. I always find something inspiring, mind expanding and deeply humbling there. I love that.
I see that my class ‘Exploring Polymer Clay’ is full and has gone to wait listing. My ‘Metal Etching Made Easy: Disc Bracelet’ class has a few slots left. It’s all good and should be a lot of fun, as always.
Last year at this show I found the first pieces for my marionette necklace, which has been on my mind a lot lately. It was the trip to Santa Fe that inspired this project entirely. It’s time to get back to it and get that finished up after this trip.
Last March I posted some pix of my trip to Santa Fe: the huge statue of Kuan Yin at the Buddhist Center in the sound sculpture garden, the prayer flags in the trees there, the sign for Bead Fest outside of the Santa Fe Convention Center… It snowed on us that week last year. It was charming. We’ll see what it does this time.
I’m thinking I should take Sharky on this trip. He’s never been that far inland and I’m sure a shark in New Mexico would be a novelty. =)
