ANN BRAGINSKY!!!...

Without Facebook how would we ever see the works of beaders like Ann Braginsky. I feel I may as well give up, I'll never be able to create such pieces like these.  Here is her necklace Petrel..


I don't even know which view to display because each one is just as amazing as the other...

When I see the beadwork done by others...

I think "My God, my beadwork is like nothing compared to theirs. This is what I thought when I found Marsha Wiest-Hines on Facebook. Check it out...and she beads more than just jewelry...

Darcy Rosner - What an inspiration...

I've recently had the opportunity to become friends (through the internet beading community) with Darcy. I just love her! She has been beading since she was 7 years old. She spends most of her time now creating beautiful elaborate pieces for the elite...and here is a sample of her beading...

Sabine Lippert - A German Laura McCabe...

Most beaders know of Laura McCabe the  internationally known bead artist and teacher. Another bead artist and teacher  Sabine Lippert's work reminds me of Laura's. See for yourself... Below are Laura's Dodechahedron (top), and Sabine's Spherriffic (bottom), beaded pieces ...






Both brilliant artists!!!

ELM Goats - What a great Idea...

Less than a mile (as the crow flies) there is a herd of goats, it's a beautiful scene. I can even see them from the balcony.  They're guarded by half a dozen Great Pyrenees dogs  from adoption agencies.  There are new puppies too.

They are working, they're eating the brush, and adding fertilizer. Great for the possible fires in this area, which is Southeast San Diego/Chula Vista (Otay region).




This is Baby and mother of the pups...
