Beatrice Killeen



I was quite surprised to see more traffic than usual at my blog this morning. Then I noticed that people seemed to be coming from Fried Peas, Beatrice Killeen's website. Well, it turns out that, very quietly, without telling me, Beatrice put up a link on her site, asking people to come vote for the necklace I submitted to Stringing Magazine. That's the kind of wonderful person Beatrice is.

One thing that has been surprising and very gratifying since I started making beads earlier this year is how generous other lampworking artists have been. Beatrice has been consistently generous with her time and resources, since I told her that I wanted to start making beads. Thank you so much Beatrice.

And thank YOU, as well, for visiting. If you have come here from Fried Peas, the necklace and the link can be found two entries down (August 17th post), or you can go here to vote. I hope you'll stay and look around more, though!

If you have not come from Fried Peas, what are you waiting for? Go here to visit Beatrice. She is a wonderful person and her beads are to die for. The photograph above is of my favorite Fried Peas set. They are sitting in my stash right now, because I am hoarding them and can't quite bear to use them. (I get them out and coo over them once in a while, though. I know, I know, weird, right? Don't tell anyone else.)

Thank you!

I can see why this set is your favorite. I have loved her site and beads for some time she rocks. =)

These beads certainly are beautiful; I'll be sure to visit again to see if you actually use them (or just continue to get them out and coo at them!)
