Myriam, owner of Imagine in Bemus Point, wore this delicate necklace that I can best describe as interlaced microscopic ball chain. It reminded me of the fashion earrings in the photograph that Mary Tynes brought to the studio class a couple years ago. Mary had wanted to render a similar design in beads and when she showed me the picture I could SEE in a moment, how to construct them in right angle weave. Their construction has such a wonderful way to get comfy with right anlge weave that I included the design in MASTERING BEADWORK.
Our day began next door to Imagine, with breakfast in the Bemus Point Inn. This is lovely Laurie, the owner. She and her husband will celebrate their first year of ownership in June. Best of luck Laurie. I heard afterwards that their peach waffles are ammmmazing.

Anne, Yancy, Darcy, Kathleen and Tracey are building layers of wool for their felt flowers. They have already completed the felt for bangles, felted earrings, and some felted beads. Between the Turbo felting boards, the luscious Aussie Fibers merino fiber and their energetic efforts we covered an astonishing amount of technique and production in one day.

Here are Lucy, Marilyn, Mary Beth, Rosemary, Mary Jane and Lyn
also busy at making felt flowers.
Tomorrow they will fabricate finished jewelry using these felt components in composition with other beads, chain, findings, crystals, and gemstones.
