Hey Hey, it's another Studio Saturday with Jangles. This week, i am busy busy busy getting ready for the Bead and Button Show. It's only two weeks away! Yikes, it's coming up fast. So this year, just like the previous years before I am crazy trying to get it all done. There are lots of lists all over the house. There are beads and boxes everywhere too. My husband asked me last night, " Is this the point when Bead and Button starts to take over our house?" It happens every year.
So this is what it is looking like...
I am teaching five classes at the show so I have been preparing class kits. These have glaze, clay, and tools to make ceramic beads. I have to pack my little kiln because I am teaching a kiln firing class too.
Then there are the beads...
They are everywhere. There are beads that need to be glazed in my kiln.
There beads that need clear glaze.
The pairs have to be tied together, the sets need to be strung on wire, and toggles need to be placed on cards.
Once I get everything made, it onto the display. I always redo my display. I like to keep things fresh. I set up a mock layout on the floor so I can see if I have everything I need. This year I am changing all of my display from black to white, plus I have a new table cloth and maybe a new sign if time permits.
As you can see the Jangles Studio, uh lets say Jangles house if very busy right now.....
If your an Art Bead Scene reader and coming to the show please stop by my booth and say hi, I would love to meet some of you in person. I will be in booth 1113.
My question for the week is about displays for shows....do you find yourself always changing things around or do you keep the same look year after year? Answer in the comments and I will send you one of my new beads that I have made for the show.
