Gail Crosman Moore

Gail Crosman Moore is interpreting our shapes, and I can hardly find the words to describe how excellent they are.

Look! This is one of the pieces that will be featured in our Gallery. Stunning!

      Yay! You might consider a wholesale pre-order when we get close to press time. It will be the lowest price to be sure.

    SO much fun, as a first time user of delicas I am blown away by their sculptural applications, the tension in this piece is just plain amazing. What are you waiting for? Time for a bellyband and get to it!

      Ha ha, you could be talking to ME, I was just about to start a new piece! A Horned Bezel, entirely in size 15 bone white beads.

    Everything is freaking me out! It’s all so AMAZING and honestly, it’s all the same. This is the problem. Only nuance separates these ideas, sometimes (as in Double Wings and Horns) only a gossamer thread of air. Sigh. So much possibility, such short human lifespans.

    It’s so exciting to see how different people interpret things! This is really cool, love the use of drops at each point.
