Last winter my step-mother Jane and I shopped together at local craft shows. We especially loved the Annual Fine Arts and Crafts show sponsored by the Dutchess County Arts Councilin Poughkeeepsie and the one at the Delameter House in Rhinebeck. Jane bought this beaded ring by Annette Mackrel. If you know me, you know how I feel about bbbbugle beads. But, this ring is so beautifully designed and executed that I even love the bbbbugle beads in it.

I just love sharing how to make these fascinating little pillow beads. I taught them in Japan, wrote the recipe in BEADWORK magazine, and they even grace the cover of Germany's premier beading magazine, Perlen Poesie. They are the project that Beatrice's sister Elise chose to learn in class tonight, pictured here. She is visiting from France.
