Cavender, Mika Online; Bead Arts Award Winners

"If you know my work, you will know me," says Laurie Mika in a great podcast on Stacey Apeitos’ site. Laurie’s in California and Stacey is in Australia if you’re tracking our global connections. Listen in on their friendly chat about Laurie’s polymer clay/mixed media mosaic process, her philosophy and her new book.

West Virginia’s Kim Cavender is a natural at blogging even though she had to be cajoled and coerced into getting online. She includes links to great findings, a color quiz and pictures of her most recent creations. Kim will keep you coming back for more.

Winners of the Bead Arts Awards 2007 have been announced and not only did Lynne Ann Schwarzenberg’s polymer clay bead (pictured at right) take the top award in the "clay bead" category but it also took top honors in the competition across all the categories. A list of the winners and a nice "Go with the Flow Pendant" tutorial from Christi Friesen are downloadable from the Step by Step site and appear in the November/December issue of their magazine.

I wanted to bring you these lovely tidbits to finish the week and to tidy my desktop. I’m off to the studio, have a lovely weekend.
