I just remembered…

Another hot beader is Teresa Meister.

Have you seen any of her beaded jewelry? I love all of them. Each piece has a lacy, delicate, vintage, and feminine look to them. This one is from her gallery on her web site and you won't be able to just look at one.

Just look at the piece on the first page of her site. JUST BEAUTIFUL!...and what a wonderful web site she has.

Who's Hot in the Beading World

While Marcia DeCoster and Laura McCabe continue with their hot streak I have found two other artists whose bead work is just divine. Cynthia Rutledge and ? damn!, it will come to me but maybe not today. Cynthia is not new to beading she like the rest of us have been beading for years. But take a look at her Intermezzo Necklace...

and the clasp!!...

Marcia DeCoster

Marcia DeCoster is a friend and mentor to me. One of her many talents is being a brilliant and innovative artist. She's one of many inspirational people I have met.

I met her by way of the Bead Society of San Diego County. The Rosier's suggested to Marcia that I might do some beading/testing of her designs/kits, and I've been inspired by her ever since. Thank you Ann and Stan!

I really don't think I'll ever be as creative as her, some people are just artsy-fartsy (and that, like being anal is a good thing) and some are not. I am not, I don't have a degree, I just know what I like and I am persistent, and GOD has given me the capability to do so.

And now she has inspired me to create a blog.
