Mary Ellen Beads juried into Fiber Arts Fiesta 2017

Mary Ellen Beads shows at Fiber Arts Fiesta 2017

Six of my pieces will be part of Fiber Arts Fiesta 2017 – a Biennial Juried Show which encompasses 19 guilds and most kinds of creative craft.

Participation matters to me. I fully support beads and bead art because it generates joy for me and for others.

I show my support through active membership in the Bead Society of New Mexico. As a member volunteer I’ll work at the Fiesta. In addition, I’ll take advantage of the fabulous instructors to take classes and expand my art.

Pictured below are my three beaded entries for this year’s show:
