New Web Site!

I'm so excited! VaL finished my new web site and has agreed to maintain it for a flat rate. She does great work! I specifically asked her to make it compatible with my ArtFire studios and she did a wonderful job!

Go see it here:

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Art Thief!

I guess there is one in every community, but this is someone (again) stealing physical art. This time at an art show. The following is copied from another artisan's blog. Please read and be alert.

Jenny Paterson from “Quilted in Clay” posted this to the PCC delphi message board and asked that we pass it on.

“2 weeks ago while packing up after a show, my case with ALL my finished “Quilted in Clay” beads was stolen out of my trailer. Along with all my findings, crystals and beads I use as accents to make necklaces.

I am estimating that I had upwards of 4500 clay beads in various sizes inside that case! I make beads in in 4 different sizes and shapes, in EACH of the 33 designs I currently have listed on my web site. Plus a number that I don’t have on the website.

These shapes are 3/4″ mobius beads, 5/8″ square, 1/2″ square and 3/8″ square. All finished and drilled.

It was suggested to me to keep an eye on eBay and Etsy for these. Which I plan on doing, but these are huge shops and I can’t monitor them alone, so I am asking for help.

If you all would not mind taking a look at the current designs on my website:

And if you happen to see something that might be my beads, please let me know.

I am devastated! We are talking hours and hours of work just GONE! Some of these designs, I don’t have any cane left, so I can’t even make any more beads, unless I remake the cane. I am having to call customers and tell them I can’t sell them the items they ordered, and ask them to choose something I have on hand, or give them a refund.

Thank you
Jenny P”
