Linda Campbell came up with an idea for a Thimble Mandrel. I thought that was very ingenious but I wanted one to use as a bead cap mandrel. The tricky part is getting the hole in the top because the mandrel is flat without a hole. I poked an indention in the middle while molten and then used my Dremel with a tiny diamond bit to make a hole in the end. These have great potential for fabulous necklace designs. I have one in mind but I have to make two matching "thimbles" which is not an easy task.
There are several events coming up soon which I will chat about at a later date.

If you are out and about Monday, please come by to see us. There will be some great deals on pottery, jewelry and other art. In addition to the sale prices, you can pick a gold coin out of the Pot of Gold for a discount on a regularly priced item. It should be fun!

Our ISGB chapter is going to be at Spring Beads again Saturday March 15. Thank you Deanna!
We have so much fun selling our beads and buying other beads from the shop. They have a great selection of seed beads, findings and anything else you could want. Here is a quick group shot of a sampling of beads I will have with me. Hope to see you there!
