Since if you are reading you are very likely a fan of beads, then you also probably know that Tucson turns into a giant bead show, well several giant bead shows, the first two weeks of February. I have been going for the last several years and this year is no exception.
Susan, Beading Frenzy and Beading by the Bay partner Susan and I will be driving together. This year I will be participating in Swarovski's Create Your Own Style event at the Westin La Paloma resort. You can find the link to workshops here.
New this year is a one day design competition hosted by Margot Potter. You'll be provided with inspiration, materials, tools and encouragement as you spend the day designing. Sounds like an excellent way to spend one of your Tucson days.
I'm teaching two workshops, although Diamond Weave pendant is currently sold out, there is room in the Timeless Crystal Pearl Bracelet class on Wednesday from 5:30 to 8:30.
Peruse the catalog as there are many Swarovski Elements projects being offered. There is sure to be one that catches your fancy.
