The ancient, antique, vintage and handmade beads in new jewelry, necklaces and cuffs are fascinating to talk about. I might get out some from my collection to look at.

It’s worth the country drive to experience the special energy of Sunwise Farm & Sanctuary. After seeing the new art, treat yourself to time on the porch and stroll through milkweed fields that feed the Monarchs and forests that shield deer, pass by the Super Collider Conductor and walk back to Honeysuckle Haven.

It’s just this one time of the year I let you snoop around my portfolios, collage stacks, inspirational objects, bead horde. Come with your questions about paper, glue, process, great art talk…
