I've got famous friends!

I'm so happy for two of my friends and fellow Bead Mavens that I could just burst. Not only are they wonderful people whose presence in my life I cherish, but they've also been recognized by one of the best beaders in the business for their gorgeous beadwork.

Mikki Ferrugiaro and Nancy Dale have just been named up and coming beader/designers by Marcia DeCoster, author of Marcia DeCoster’s Beaded Opulence, on the Lark Crafts Site.

And, without any further ado, here is a little eye candy from the Artfire shops of these wonderful women (to see even more, click on their names and you will be whisked off to their shops):

Secondly...thankyou. I feel exactly the same way about you and can't wait till I'm back in Ca and we can get together IRL....oh, the mischief we'll get into :)

Aw, thank you SO much, Cynthia!! I'm very very blessed to have you as a friend as well, and I am so happy to be part of the Mavens. I'm thrilled for Mikki, too!

Great work, ladies! And congratulations. I especially love the urn and the Kimono cuff. Beautiful!
