Beading by the Bay is Rockin'

BEADING BY THE BAY has 4, I repeat 4 spaces left! WOW! Marcia DeCoster, my co-producer in this little venture, and I are absolutely delighted! For those of you who have already registered, I look forward to seeing you in March. Swarovski Elements has graciously offered to host our "Meet and Greet" which takes place on Thursday evening. While enjoying an assortment of goodies and beverages, my friend Ron Rock of Swarovski Elements will tantalize us, once again, with the latest Trends presentation featuring the most current products and innovations by Swarovski. It was a blast last year! The fancy desserts by the hotel's pastry chef were rivaled only by the beautiful crystals that were all over the room, with the latter having a zero calorie count!

My friends at Tierra Cast are generously donating goodies from their product line for each of our students. Thank you Sarah and Julie!

If you register by tomorrow, January 5th, your name will be entered in a drawing to win a set of kits, one for each class taught!! How exciting is that? Pictured above is a sneak peak of Maggie Meister's three colorways for her project this year entitled, Olivia. 
Bellissima Maggie!!


  1. Loving the colors for Maggie's kit! Now I just have to make a decision (haha)...I loved Ron's presentation last year, and I'm so happy that he gets to come back and show us some more sparkle this year! I hope he brings more sparkly goodies for the tables - that was fun :o) Our table had a whole method worked out to make sure everyone got what they wanted...
