Ok- I’m squirreling away for Fall. I’ll start posting some of the things I’ve found this month to inspire new creations. A friend asked me to make him a talisman, so I thought I’d start here with
Norbu at Pema Arts . They have such an amazing collection of Tibetan beads- amber, turquoise, shell, resin, silver of varied types, dzi beads, and old necklaces made by the Himalayan tribes of Tibet, Nepal, & India. You can feel so much history when you visit his site/booth. He goes to all the bead shows- so keep your eye out for he/his family and their fine collection, new & old.
