Necklace creating in the gallery

A sterling silver rosary wrapped necklace called 'Dancing Queen' :)
I made a copper version a couple of weeks back and needed to make one out of silver after the commission piece for a wedding.
I love these beads!
The fire-polished faceted beads are other worldly, love them!

The gallery is listed on the visitpa site

Flemish House Art Gallery and Studio
The Gallery and Studio were established 2 ½ years ago featuring regional artists, rotating featured artists, mix media work, artisan jewelry, beading and jewelry supplies, classes and retreats covering many techniques. Now the gallery is listed as a Pennsylvania Wilds Trail Partner and is a participating retail facility. Being part of the Pennsylvania Wilds, as a trail partner, the gallery has access to a variety of juried work from Pennsylvania artists and will continue to grow. Another facet is the student/teacher involvement with an annual district art show, individual features and open mic nights in the Coffee Shop.

Revamped Space

DSC09339, originally uploaded by mossnbeads.

The gallery is ready for the new artist and it's new face. We have been spending long hours getting it up and running like I envision with new paint, scrubbed rugs, beading supplies, sales area and signage. My next step is getting all of the Pennsylvania Wilds artists labeled with bios for right now until the branding is sent out to the participating galleries and shops throughout a 12 county area.
