My trusty Garmin directed me beautifully to the D.Vine, yup, divine, home. Debbie is gracious and charming and lovely. We met a few of the Delaware Valley Bead Society members for Thai dinner. Actually, it was one of those Asian fusion restaurants, though trendy and popular, I just don't "get". Thai and Japanese and Chinese are distinctly different cuisine. But hey, I'm old enough to recall how popular the "continental" restaurants were a few years back. It is just as much a stretch to present Italian and French cuisine from the same kitchen....,I digress, sorry.
But, before I leave this topic, my lemongrass grilled shrimp with veggies was superior and I, dare I say, envied Karen's sushi and sashimi entree. No have not seen anything that fresh and authentic looking outside of Japan.
This weekend we will felt no few than 3 bracelets. Plus they will also learn undulating peyote, my fast new way that I had to "dope-slap" myself for not inventing in time for MASTERING BEADWORK, double needle odd-count peyote and a secure, quick and sparkling bezel. These 3 or others we'll explore, will be used to complete each bangle.
This group has some very talented jewelry makers: beaders, metal workers and metal clay sculptors, and fewer bead stitches...until the end of the weekend. There will be a dozen or so mad hot bead stitchers soon.
Well, more fun to share after the workshop. Goodnight for now.
