Hmmmmm...a double life....Well...It's not really all that juicy...just wanted to get your attention ;o).
You won't see it in the upcoming movie of the week or a new reality show (although there was a time in my life that I think I could have made millions during the years I was raising teenagers), but my double life today is pretty common in the world of jewelry.
I have been a special education teacher for 26 years which means I'm no spring chicken anymore! Although I really do love my job and feel very fortunate to have some special friends that I work with, I do hope to retire one day. It's the hope that my husband Bill, also a teacher and artist and I can retire and spend the golden years creating with clay. He is a wood-fire potter and I am a ceramic bead artist. I love creating with clay. I love clay because there are so many choices in terms of shapes, size, styles and glazes that makes this form of creating something I don't think I will ever tire of.
Okay...I'm going to cut myself off here since I need some material for my next post ;o)
The above pictures are the original Lacey Beads....made right from the little artist herself!!!
