Moving some precious cargo…. My favorite storage thingy and a printer’s box full of lampwork beads. All settled now in their new home. Glad that’s over, though still need to fill it back up. Moving is work!

Thank you to Voyage Raleigh for the interview. Check out their website for information on lots of local Raleigh creative people and businesses.

Today we’d like to introduce you to Kathy King. Hi Kathy, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstories. I have always been a crafter, making all kinds of things when I was younger. Not sure what I wanted to do and liking math, […]

I’m excited for a change but sad to leave Artspace. Will miss this space. Next week is my last week here. Mostly furniture to move now. Not sure where it’s all going to go at home but I’ll figure it out. Have a great Saturday!

A great way to support artists in Ukraine whose lives have been turned upside down this past week. I also searched Etsy for Ukrainian digital art and founds lots of wonderful art not related to beads. I will have a nice collection of digital tutorials and art files for future projects.

❄️ It happened around the time when I started going to school. The winters used to be harsh, and the lake in our village remained frozen for months. I was learning how to ice-skate, slowly getting braver and more confident. It was my grandma who was with me that day.
⛸️ We stopped for a little while to count the contrails,
and I collected all my courage to ask: “Will there be war again?”

*** Studio Moving Sale & First Friday ***
I am sad to announce that I will be leaving my studio space in Artspace at the end of the month. I have so enjoyed my time (can't believe its been almost 6 years) in downtown Raleigh. Meeting other artists and art lovers, plus having my own dedicated art space. I will miss the interactions but am also excited for some change. I have a new studio space at home (new home as of last year) and look forward to continuing my creative practice there. I have TONS of new beaded sculpture ideas in the works.

That being said, I am having a 20% off sale in my studio for the remainder of the month. More things sold means less things having to be moved. So come out this Friday. First Friday, at Artspace. I will be in my studio from 6:30 pm until closing. It's supposed to be chilly so will be a great time to wonder around inside a space full of art. Hope to see you soon!

It’s been over 11 years since my Bead Quilling book came out and I have yet to get around to rewriting most of the instructions. I teach it a LOT differently than written in the book, downside of writing a book before teaching the technique. The title is now incorrect, I no longer use square stitch to do the technique and have been teaching it using ladder stitch for about 8 years.
Still experimenting with all the fun and unique things you can do with bead quilling. The 3D shapes are still my favorite.
Glad to see the usage of the quilling technique in the current Fire Mountain Gems catalog (Suncatcher page 3).

Love all the color and sparkle! I’ve always loved costume jewelry, especially sparkly brooches. The displays at Vintage Vogue in downtown Cary just make me happy to look at. Fun store to spend some time in, full of little treasures.

Some favorite views from my studio. Will miss having all my jewelry on display since I don’t have enough room at home for that. Will have to work at getting in more galleries.

Slowly moving my beads back home, one bag at s time. Sadly, it’s time for me to leave Artspace. I’ll be there 6 years this June…wow, time has flown. Of course, the last 2 years haven’t been very busy. I love my studio space and all the folks I meet there, but with the new home studio space I feel it time to move back.
Will still be around for a bit so stop by on the next First Friday (next week), I’ll be there!! Hoping if I start moving stuff now it won’t be so bad. 😃

Super excited to see this article on CraftForms 2021 in the Chester County Life Magazine. Wayne Art Center was nice enough to send me a copy when they mailed back my piece. Especially excited to be in the group photo and have my Crown of Artemis have a half-page photo. It was such a great exhibition. Thank you Wayne Art Center!

Love these handmade ceramic beads I got at a local thrift store. It was $3 for the necklace. Love the metallic finish and not-perfect shapes.

Playing with beaded flowers…I need a LOT more practice. First attempt is very messy but I still like it. I’m not used to using wire and I think what I’m using is too thick but it’s good to practice with for now. Off to try it using the thread I’m used to using, knowing it will be much floppier. 🌸

Using up some cut up hand painted papers in this collage I made yesterday. Added tissue paper with the sewing machine, then ripped some of that back off, added stencils, more sewing and finished it off with some hand sewn beads and sequins. Nice frame gotten on one of my thrift store visits.

Finally! This piece was started in September and then sat on my desk untouched since November. I wasn’t exactly sure what else I wanted to do so finished it up yesterday with some beaded beads and a pretty clasp from @agrainofsandbeads. It would make a nice crown if I added an extension on it…might do that. Have a good Friday!

Not a fan of the paint job on this glass head but I’ve been looking for one and this one was very reasonably priced at a thrift/antique store last weekend. Now to either remove the paint or add a new layer.

Found these really nice hats at the Salvation Army thrift store. I don’t wear hats much but they were too nice to pass for $3 each. Two are 100% wool and all are made by high end labels. The brown one will be Steampunkd I believe. There was a bright yellow feathered one I didn’t get, may need to get it if there next time I go. I’ve been addicted to going to thrift stores the last few months. Really should stop but at least I don’t spend too much, just bring stuff home i may not really need. 😁.

Congratulations to Kathy King Jewelry for being featured in the CraftForms 2021 Exhibition in Philadelphia. Her bead work statement pieces are amazing.
Age-old craft practices influence jewelers Kathy King and Maya Weiss. King does a modern take on the tradition of bead weaving, allowing her to produce dimensional, architectural structures. Weiss harkens back to the world of fibers to create hand-made, tactile forms of adornment. The results will definitely make a statement. Shop their works at the Virtual Smithsonian Craft Show, October 23 - 31. For details, visit smithsoniancraftshow.org.
