A Rainy Saturday

i made this necklace a long time ago. And it sold. But I was sad to see it go.
It was a favorite, for sure. So I thought I'd show it off again today.

The forecast for today: RAIN RAIN AND MORE RAIN. Which kind of stinks since I'm headed out to Saratoga Springs for the day to meet Beth and her husband for lunch. BUT it rained last year too so I guess I shouldn't be that surprised. They are coming up from the Philadelphia area to watch their daughter race in a crew championship. We are headed to the Ripe Tomato for some lunch. But! Before we do that, I'm headed to one of my favorite bead shops in NY state.
Saratoga Beads! They have a nice selection of well, everything!! So I'm pretty excited about going and picking up a few cool things. They have the nicest selection of vintage glass strands of anywhere I've been.

I'm also looking quite forward to tomorrow. If you're a blog surfer like I am, you'll probably already know that the Beads of Clay group is having an open studio blog tomorrow!
A bunch of beady friends are participating and sorts of fun things are planned!

Here is a list of participants! (sorry, they are NOT linked)

Read the BOC blog to learn more about the schedule for tomorrow! And hopefully I'll see around the blogosphere!


  1. I am so jealous!Mainly about Saratoga, and a little about the bead store. I went to college in Saratoga, a million years ago, and havent been back very often. What a great town.

    I knew I was going to go there, when I saw the metalsmithing and enameling studios in the art building. Many a produstive late night spent there preparing for my Sr art show. Sigh. THose were the days!


  2. I'll give Saratoga a High Five for you while I'm there!
    I can see why you went there, it's a GORGEOUS area. And I would def. consider living there if it wasn't so darn spendy! :)

  3. hoping my fingers don't give out on me tomorrow trying to keep up with all that open studio action!

  4. Lorelie, you are the best! Thanks so much for getting the BOC blog event out there.

    Lorelei, I had no other way to contact you but on your blog so sorry for this. I tried clicking on all your contacts, but they're all deadends.
    So anyway, I would like your permission to link your blog on mine.
    I have been following your blog for some time and I love your work.
    Hope to hear from you either way.

I'm sorry to have to turn on the word verification here, but I got fed up with spammers comments!

Better than a thousand hollow words, is one word that brings peace.
