Ruby Sparkle by Julia L. Hecht
Gold plated seed beads and swarovski crystal
Tomorrow I will have my first outdoor booth at an arts and crafts fair. It is a juried show for members of the Northern New Mexico Arts and Crafts Guild. I scoped out their July show. It is a great location just off The Plaza in Santa Fe, in Cathedral Park. The historic and grand Cathedral of St. Francis provides a fabulous Santa Fe backdrop. I am excited to be among this diverse group of artists. I am even more excited to be talking with a whole new group of people who will meander into my booth. I love explaining about beadwork. A lot of my work is very intricate, and it is very rewarding to see the wonder and awe that beadwork inspires. Always, people comment that they don't have the patience. As fellow beaders may relate - For me, it isn't patience - it's a joyous, meditative process and love of the beads - tiny points of color and light.
The fair is Saturday and Sunday September 25 -26th,
from 10- 5.
