Friday updates

This past Friday update consisted of new photographs, and they were posted in entirety to our Facebook page. Do you go there? If so, you saw them. Next Friday will be a big one- we are publishing our Rick-Rack start (which is rather ingenius, if we do say so ourselves) and then that will be the last of the Specials for Pre-Orders sneak peeks- we are now seriously hunkered down and in press production mode, in the final weeks before we finish up.

I’ve been doing some hand shots, so that you can see how the pieces look when worn. There has been a lot of request for this, although it does strike me that many beadwork projects are presented in books and magazines without benefit of model. Anyway, we like to do our best to respond to requests, so hand shots I took.

Here is one of them, a lovely and unusual cuff by Rayo Boursier, modelled by the vintage French Hand I bought at a Paris flea market.

    I am not on Facebook and don’t want to be. Any other way to see your updates? Since I have preordered your book, I’m interested in your prebook postings. Thanks

      All you miss are photographs…but yes, there is a nice collection of them on the page. You know, you can look at our Facebook page without joining Facebook, and you can simply view the photo collection anonymously.

      It will ask you to join or log in, but you can just ignore that or click past it, and just think of the page as a photo gallery.
      Perhaps have a look?
