Pat Sylvester


will be missed by all of us

at the NM Bead Society

Remembering John Kenny Halstead



Let there be peace on earth

And let it begin with me

Let there be peace on earth

The peace that was meant to be 


With God as our Creator

We are family

Let us walk with each other

In perfect harmony 


Let peace begin with me

Let this be the moment now

With every step I take

Let this be my solemn vow 


To take each moment

And live each moment

In peace eternally

Let there be peace on earth

And let it begin with me

 

Member projects during self quarantine... wow!


  Claudia Rossgraduate of New York Institute of Art and Design, original design, her first work with beads on leather including a focal peace and beautiful wire work.


 Owl Family in the Twilight Sun by Elizabeth Sands.  featuring and owl and her family below a tree with the sun and stars in the background. It is surrounded with decorative fireflies.
The beads are sewn through  a decorative piece of metal and has backed with leather and a decorative button pearl. I used beads from size 24 through 11s. Techniques used include peyote stitch, free-form embroidery, CRAW and netting.


      Amethyst Flower Bracelet with Hibiscus Charm & Black Tourmaline Art Deco Necklace by Sally Moore.


              Turquoise on Turquoise & Wire work pendant & additional earrings and necklace by Deb Cole.


 Teresa Kenyon, Bead Society Webmaster, has been enjoying her new job with Facebook these past 2 months.  Lots to learn and trying to balance that with finding time to be creative outside work.  This is a pendant she is working on.  Her favorite beading is 'just to start and see where the beads take her'.


  Fran Hahn's lamp work beads, wire, black spacers (purchased) with sterling components.

 

        Pam Troutman worked on a 6 by 6 inch square for a display in the Museum of Beadwork in Portland, Maine.  She has also finished a few pieces from her Bead Cruise this past February, modifying the designs to make them unique. The Cacti Dragonfly is a variation of Sherry Serafini’s NOVA pendant using beads and materials in Pam’s stash. The burgundy necklace is from the class Montasery Windows by Kinga Nichols, but instead of making a bracelet with 5 matching components, she made a pair of earrings and this pendant.


        Jerry Steed has been been busy beading and working for Desert Rose. Desert Rose will close the end of June and reopen in September 2020.  Jerry you did a beautiful job on her magnificent Melanie Potter bracelet along with the mask and other beautiful earrings.
