While settling into the guest room at Jan's ( chairwoman of Indiana Bead Society's education committee), I spotted a collection of woodturnings on the dresser. Among the collected pieces are a couple of Charlie's first turnings. Yet again a Beader married to a woodturner. I don't personally know fellow beadweaver Wendy Ellsworth, but, I DO know her husband is a turner. Recall reading about Anne and her husband Jim, the creative couple who put me up when i taught at Imagine in Bemus Point this past May? And of course there are Janet and her husband Bob, make up BoomerangPro crochet hooks and looms. And, of course there is Anne and her husband John and Irma and her husbandSteve. What is it with all these beaders falling in love with woodturners?
At our November bead blast expect to shop for beautiful turned vessels, pens, earrings ... Some are made especially to accommodate some beadwork.
Here are some examples: Bob's pens and Steve's earrings.
