Love going to our farmer's market! If you find yourself in PT on a Saturday be sure and go uptown and check it out. Awesome produce, sweets, crafts and excellent food vendors for lunch!
I have been very busy in the studio....
I finally figured out how to make my wave bracelets into a cuff! I have had so many requests for them....
And here are a few of my bangles with the patina before buffing.... I am loving the colors!
If you are in the area May 4 -6 come to The Whole Bead Show in Seattle (Lynnwood). It is totally sold out and should be a great show with lots to offer. I know for sure that there are 7 artisans and many other booths with Czech beads, pearls..... silver...... seed beads.... findings..... chains.....stringing materials.... etsc..... and all at great prices! Come see us.

The road home...
It is always so great to get to this point after one of my journeys. I love this road.... the trees meeting together in the middle... a trail to our home....
This weekend was fantastic! My mind is swimming with new ideas and can't wait to get in the studio this week to try some!

The skies over Port Townsend today were full of big billowing clouds. Nicole is here and tomorrow we leave for the other side (meaning Seattle area) to take a class in micro shell forming. We are both looking forward to where this class will take us.

Hearts and spirals......
A very dear friend from Hawaii found this beautiful piece of coral in the shape of a heart with a spiral in its center...... She knew I would love it and she was so right! Thank you Nicole for finding such a wonderful treasure and giving it to me! I will treasure it always!

What a truly amazing day!!!! Whit and I drove up to Canada to see if we could get a glimpse of the snowy owls. We ended up at Boundary Bay, about 20 miles from the border. There were 12 snowy owls that we could see.... and I am sure there were many more that we didn't see.
The white, two-foot-tall birds, which live in the Arctic the rest of the year, are known to fly south in large numbers every few winters in what is known as an irruption. But this year, the numbers are unusually high. It could be because this last year was an exceptional year for them. Usually they hatch one to two chicks but this last year they were hatching 6 and 7! It could also be because the lemmings population has decreased and they had to come further south for food... no one is really sure.
One thing for sure is it was an incredible sight to see.... here are a few of the over 1000 photos we shot today... we still have another 500 to go through. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
My Whit.... shooting away!
Just look at this beautiful day we had! This reminds me of the clouds in the southwest!
