Apologies!

Posted in Day to Day, Uncategorized at 12:10 pm by kim

Oh dear, oh dear…. I have been very remiss in updating the blog haven’t I and I do apologise. Following Xmas I did have a lot of work to do to catch up and to supply both new and existing designs to my galleries. I am still working on that, although at the end of it all now I think!

I am also enjoying a visit from my UK based daughter so its hard to get back to the beads!!

This morning though I have updated Robyn Kirkman’s gallery with some images of her new work which I think is fantastic! Its bright, contemporary and very original so do have a look when you get a minute!

Look at Robyn’s gallery page for entry to such items as her Multi Coloured Pendant…

Latest News!

First item of news on the Northcoast Beadmakers website is the new listing of Lauren Forgie’s special purpose mandrels. These mandrels allow you to make beads with three or four holes, allowing a multitude of threading possibilities.
I’m very excited to be able to tell you that I am the official distributor for Australia! Thanks to Lauren for putting her faith in me!!

Things ‘re lookin’ up!

Posted in Day to Day, Uncategorized at 8:47 pm by kim

Thank goodness my wonderful web man was able to manipulate things to give me a decent link to my main website – yeehah!! BUT it does seem that because I work on an older system (being a poor struggling artist who can’t afford to upgrade my Mac, and all that) that I don’t have the convenience of buttons to do my HTML work for me, I will have to learn……..oh dear, my head is full of beads and I don’t have room for other, albeit useful, information…..just ask my kids …… when I am asked for their dates of birth they generally answer for me……it takes me a while to retrieve that information from the sponge of a brain I have………..

Anyway, today I have been making new jewellery with those luscious summer cooler beads, swarovski crystal and silver……stay tuned….. I’ll get images up soon.

I also photographed some ferocious fearsome faces that I made the other day……
