It's warming up around here weatherwise. And it sure was warm on Tuesday when the Bead&Button Show class registration opened and all of you jewelry makers around the globe signed up for classes of all skill levels and interest areas. If you haven't registered yet, check out the classes and events. And trust me when I say, May and June in Milwaukee can't be beat! Speaking of the Bead&Button Show, Ann Dee Allen, editor of Bead&Button Magazine, invites beaders to enter the Bead Dreams competition.
Meanwhile, my jewelrymaking buddies have been keeping busy. Here's what they've been up to.
