Wow, time flies when you're having fun! This past week just flew by and I have been having fun! We had a combined meet-up of members from both Florida Jewelry Artist Retreat Group and Florida Beaders group at The 3 Bears Bead Shop in Umatilla, Florida. There were four of us able to make it and we all had a great time! We started out getting acquainted then went bead shopping, then we talked about our coming retreat, and then went bead shopping, then went to lunch and then back to bead shopping! We also got a little time in for learning. Alice W actually had a real student who did a very good job wrapping a beautiful ring! Bebee G, Alice S and myself worked on perfecting our wrapped loops. As the sun went down, Alice S and myself went to Bebee's beautiful home on the St. John's River and spent the night there. This is where the January Jewelry Artist's retreat will be held and boy, will it be a good one!
