Fish Eyes

We just completed our second show of the year, Indiana Artisan Marketplace. We love doing that show as it is such as easy show to do. The load in and out is super simple and they do their best to be helpful. It was only our second year, but we have already made lots of new friends there. So you're probably wondering what the title "Fish Eyes" has to do with this post, right??? Well, we're very excited to announce we are collaborating with Ken Roberts of Ken's Fish Market with our 3 year beads. His beautiful market of metal...

On The Road Again......

We are just days shy of our next show, Indiana Artisan Marketplace in Indianapolis, Indiana. It's been four and a half weeks since Kentucky Crafted: The Market.  Indiana Artisan seemed so far away then, so how is it almost here?  For this upcoming show James has finished his redesign of our tables. I must say I consider myself pretty lucky to have a business partner who has a Master's in Architecture. Pretty much our entire booth has been created by him.  Booth lighting, our canvas panels with our jewelry images and name signs, our pendant necklace display, jewelry crate displays,...

What a Production! (Our Updated Show Schedule)

Tis the season for show season juries. We love show season (March-October)!  It's a lot like putting on a play (yes, I was a theatre major) as it's so much more than making canes and creating jewelry.  There are boxes and bags to order, jewelry findings to purchase, repairing and/or freshening up our booth and booth displays, not to mention updating our wholesale line sheets. After everything is ready, there's still the packing and the actual getting there. We're very fortunate when our families schedules match up and they caravan with us.  It's a constant build up until the show...

Warning: BSpoken Bead Necklace Class Could Be Good For Your Health

Did you know that our Bead Necklace Make & Take Class can be good for your health? That may sound odd to you at first, but according to lots of research, taking time for yourself to explore your creativity can reduce stress and help ward off dementia related illnesses. Just viewing art in a museum can lower your stress hormones, so actually participating in making art is even more significant to your body. When engaged in art making, whether you consider yourself artistic or not, research has shown that creating or working with our hands enhances our mental health and makes...
