A Regifting Give Away

At last month's general meeting for the NW Bead Society, Kendra Bruno, Executive Director for the International Society of Glass Beadmakers gave a fun lecture combining a bit of the history of glass beadmaking, along with overviews of the past and present focuses of the ISGB itself, including a wonderful slide show of their two of their most recent traveling art exhibits. 

As part of her talk, she gave a way catalogs for both of the exhibits,  Trajectories focusing on the art of the glass bead and Convergence, which focused on contemporary jewelry design with glass beads.  These catalogs are gorgeous eye candy.  But the truth is, I already have a copy of both.  Oops! 

So I thought I'd pass them along so that someone else might enjoy them too.

If you'd like a copy, let me know by leaving a comment.  I'll do a random drawing next Wednesday, May 16th. 


  1. I would love a copy of these magazines, Karen! I always enjoying seeing the ads for ISGB in Ornament magazine.

  2. I would love to own these books and drool over the lovely pictures!
