Important People

This is our Queen Bee, Royelle. She is the rock upon which most of my interest and discovery of beading and jewelry-making is based. She is one of the most creative people I've ever met and in more areas than you can shake a stick at. I met her many years ago at the first EGA meeting I ever attended. And we've been friends ever since. She and Barbara, pic to follow, and Ada some of my core friends. There certainly is something to say about the people one chooses for their friends and how close we can become.

This pic was taken at one of our beading retreats. We take off to a beautiful lake setting for about 4 days and sleep in bunkbeds, just like at camp, and bead 24/4!! We all bring food and drink and fun and love and we have the best time. There are about 14-20 of us and we represent all aspects of beading: seed, lampwork, gemstone, freeform design. Enough so that there is never a dull moment and if you're stuck momentarily, there is plenty to inspire you.

Well, I don't know how this got so little but it's Barbara and Ada two very important beading friends.
