Before and After

As I'm getting ready for a couple upcoming shows, I wanted something for my table...something charming, something that would be fun and go with my name, Garden Path Beads.
Kurt came up with an idea and offered to make it for me.

I still can not believe he took this scrap metal...

And made this sweet garden gate for me...

I've been busy over these last few months getting ready for some fun events!

The Bead Soup is reviled (here on my blog)
This event is where you get matched up with a partner and you send each other beads and then you make something from the goodies they send you. This year my partner was Wendy who sent me an amazing Peruvian Amazonite focal bead! Fun Fun Fun
