Hello To All The ISGB'ers and Hello to WetCanvas,

We are another of the ISGB forum folks who are now at WC. This is a nice looking forum with a vast amount of information in all categories. Still stumbling my way through getting it all set up but glad to be here.


This all started for me when Norm wanted to take a class in beads and I went along for fun. Before the day was over I became a possessed person and when we got home I packed up 20 years of woodworking and have never looked back. I still do a little wood and a few other fun things like copper garden art and some stained glass but lampworking takes up 95% of my time.
We have a web site that shows our mobile-bead box.

Norm & Bobby,
Welcome, great to see you've found your way over here. I think you'll enjoy it! Yes post photos, always love to see your work! My mother (Sylvia Skea) is a great fan of your beads, so I recognized your names particularily from her glowing remarks when ever a new package of beads arrives at her doorstep! Best, Valorie

Valorie...this is a most comfortable site....we really like it.

Lauri......We laughted so hard we couldn't see the screen...thanks.

Harold....Tabular beads seem to be one of the things that I have to make. I acutally go through withdrawels if I don't make them.

I will get together a few photos to post also.

Welcome Bobby and Norm:

Your location says "near Seattle." Where are you? I'm "near" Seattle in Maple Valley. You don't have to say if you don't want to.

Laura......we are "temporally" a ferry ride from Seattle. There is another move in our future but not sure of when. Things seem to change daily instead of monthly at this moment in time. I have a mobile glass box so when the move does come I will be able to make beads wherever we go. Life is good.

Gnu.....The "tabs" are beads that you squash ! ! ! I love to paint in glass and the tabs make for a wonderful flat surface to put colors on. This is one that I just finished.

O.K. picture is somewhere in cyberspace........a link to tab
