I've been a busy busy girl the past several days trying to put together a RESOURCE page on my website for lampworkers. It started out as a simple list of my go-to glass & supplies sources that my first lampworking teacher asked me to put together for her for her students. (she knows I get around) But, being the A.D.D. perfectionist that I am, I couldn't leave it w/ SIMPLE. No way. It needs to be a COMPLETE source list... starting out w/
GLASS . TOOLS . SUPPLIES
...then adding subcategories for SPECIALTY suppliers, like:
Frit & Murrini
Glassworking & Shaping Tools
....then Studio Equipment...
then books & magazines & tutorials & teaching studios, jewelry making supplies & on & on & on.
LOL... it never ends.
I'm getting some wonderful suggestions... can't use them all... but it's nice for others to check it out for me & fill in some blanks.
BUT... I have to stop for a few days, at least..... the BEAD SOUP PARTY is coming to an end on Wednesday & I have got to finish up my piece!! (no, I'm NOT a procrastinator... no way. LOL. I've been a little stuck w/ this piece... fighting to keep myself from taking this fabulous pendant that I've made from Jen's polymer piece & put it on a gorgeous silk ribbon. LOL. I like simpler pieces where the focal stands out...but we've challenged eachother to do something outside of the norm & Jen's done a fantastic job w/ my piece & is learning new techniques & is working w/ new materials in the process!! So time to get busy & do the same thing!!!
While I'm here :o) ...here's a little show & tell... a new heart necklace...I love it!

What do you think??? You love it, too... don't you?? :o) Need to get it listed in my Etsy store... will be after I get this Bead Soup piece finished up & posted, though!!
Have a great week!
