Ive been thinking of doing this for months, and after a period of quietness in blog land I thought now would be the perfect time to do it - I'm crossing over to my new Blog on Word Press. if you have been following my blog at all then you can come with me here
My blog will be concerned with my own work, classes, Guest Teachers for Art Clay Scotland, my travels etc....

This blog is going to be looked after by all the girls at the Little Bead Shop (even me occasionally) so the hand over I think is fitting!! There will be plenty of chatter about all the beady things going on, classes, jewellery designs and metal clay too! I'm sure given my lackluster blogging of late it will be a really interesting blog to follow!

SO - - I thought I'd introduce you to two of the girls who will be blogging!!

Helen Chalmers - 23, is a jewellery student at Duncan of Jordanstone in Dundee. At the moment she is starting work towards her degree show and dissertation. She loves to draw, and has just started working in lampworked glass. She is a familiar and friendly face at The Little Bead Shop, holds her Level 1 Qualification in Art Clay Silver and has been published in "Bead Magazine"

Deanne Holden - our newest staff member - jewellery designer Deanne uses a variety of media in my work from sterling and fine silver, copper, bronze and art clay silver. She is, by her own admission, interested in everything odd, and her creative interests include Victoriana, gothic, deco and nouveau. She is obsessed with jewellery and design in all its forms and loves being experimental. Deanne also holds the Art CLay Level 1 Qualification and like Helen has also seen her written articles published in "Bead".
