I am working on the 2012 luncheon and got some emails from Dana. I googled your name to try to verify your mailing address and came upon your website! Lovely stuff! I will treat myself at Christmas with one of your bracelets; maybe you will have some smalls by then? Look for your luncheon invitation in a couple of weeks.

Barbara-- Made a great necklace awhile back using Bubble Beads and Knitted Wire Beads that sold well. I am interested in purchasing more of the Amber Bubble Beads and am looking for appropriate spacers. Don't see a color in your Cheerio's that works and might want another shape anyway. How about the California Disks in Amber? Do they look right with Bubble Beads?

Can you please tell me how large the hole is in the California beads? Also, I assume the price is per bead, but I am confused. What is the actual price for the 5/8" size? Is it $18 or $24. Thanks for your help. Your beads are lovely and I am hoping to use them for my daughter's wedding.

I create one of a kind jewelry and sell it for my charities. Everyone loves my work but I felt it was becoming common place. I needed a pick me up.I have been getting bored as to what was out there in beads for me to purchase and work with...THEN I saw some of your beads. They are stunning. Thank you for your creativity. It is refreshing.

I was reading the book Creative Metal Clay Jewelry and saw the glass beads with the PMC cores.. I love you have them available?? I didn't think that you could make the bead around the clay and fire it.

Greetings from Malaysia. I am crazy about 'Romantic Country' magazines eversince the first time I came across at our local bookstore in Kuala Lumpur.

I saw your website published by the Editor. I surfed and admire your DIY collections. I am also doing all sorts of bangles,ear rings,necklaces when I feel like it. I sell the stuff at our weekend flea market and they make good money.

Glad that we have similar taste.Happy to share with you.

It was such a great pleasure meeting you and taking your class! ~ I loved the format because I often get over-whelmed and excited about the information being offered in a workshop and would rather soak up as much as possible than to try and create something at that moment. Although, I would have enjoyed playing with the prisma technique! Thank you for all the extra advice at dinner and for your purse purchase! I hope to see you again and soak up some more BBS inspiration!!! Fondly, Tamara

Dear Barbara,

first at all I wanted to tell you that I simply adore your book as I do with your work too.

Today I wanted to buy the wonderful Rubber Tube Lock Cords and when I updated my cart because shipping to Germany it told me 30.00 US$ for shipping, that´s means more than the cords :-). Is it really the amount for shipping?

Thanks for your answer and all my best wishes to you
