Throughout the spring and summer, I will often be gone for a week or two. I will ship out any orders received just as quckly as I can when I get back from the trips.
I appreciate your patience

Christina Manes, the creator of all these delightful works, passed away on February 19, 2024.
She will be missed by all those who knew her, and those who enjoyed her beadwork.
She left one last piece to share with the world, the pattern was drawn, the beads were stitched, but she hadn't specified the beads used. Right now, a team of experts is working on selecting the beads. When they have it all worked out, one last masterpiece will be shown.
