New Article at WMC about the skills and some challenges with them.

So excited to tell what I am up to. A gazillion things actually; Writing, working, teaching, working more, thinking, creating, being a Mom…. Seeing Phish play at Cobo Arena in Detroit.

It was a great show. Big difference from the small bar, St Andrews hall they played in, in ’92… not sure how many can fit in there?10,500 people at Cobo! It was awesome. They played, “bounce around the room”, and I remember the trampolines they used to jump on. We were so young.

To top that night off, my Big brother bought myself, and my husband tickets to the show!!! AND!! I got to meet my brothers girlfriend, Melissa. She is beautiful & kind; and I am really excited for them!! (And for me, cuz i get a new cool friend :D)

So many things going on…….

decals, beads, tutorials,  Winter show at the Dearborn Academy!!!!!!

My “Art for the sake of Art” became a whole new piece of Art!! And! Some Art bead shows!!

So fun to see what people make with my beads.  The bead inspires an idea, and to see people finish that off is so super cool to me.

 I was excited to see that one of my faces was named by another Artist.  “Wanda” is at Fitzherbert’s shop at Etsy.  She gets to hang with some jasper beads in a beautiful neck piece. I am honored to have created her.

She was sculpted a couple years ago in the flame, and sold at my Etsy shop. FOR the sake of Art! She became a finished piece.

sherylboogermoonwebI organized my first event for the guild (GLASSACT). 

Sheryll Hubbard-Anspach and Jim Anspach (that link there is a nice interview); They came out for a demonstration before the bead bonanza (big bead show in Metro Detroit area every Spring, and every Fall) .

One of the GLASSACT goals is to learn, and support other Artist’s that teach; and make education less expensive for our members. Keep the flow flowin’! So, we invited Ms. Booger out for a demo!

Sheryll (Ms. Booger) did a great demonstration on her Mask beads.  She made a bug too!  And then! To top it off we got Jim (Mr. Booger) to make us a flame bead, and a beautiful rose.  (that was a bonus!) So much patience to make those flames!

Just as I went to leave Sheryll gave me this crescent moon face bead. I really love it. The blue is gorgeous, and those fluffy cheaks are so pinchable!

As soon as I got home, I was so inspired to get to my torch. I had to make a Comedy mask. The skills Sheryll shared were kind of a new perspective, and I really wanted to try it out.

I was happy with my first approach.  I can see where I want to add more detail as I go. These techniques are so imediate, and require very little tooling. I was really amazed that she could wait for the glass to land right where it needs to be. Slowly sculpting the form by adding the glass one step at a time.



Right now I am working a lot of hours for the science schools and hospitals that need shop drawings of the future labs, and classrooms. BAM! Is that off subject? Not really. It turns out many of these mad scientists are making glass on a regular basis.  Some of them are even running the departments! lol!

It is a small world after all.


A glimpse of those boogie down beads!

 A link to my new post at WMC is here! …

“People celebrating is the highest art of them all.  Not only do they look beautiful, they feel beautiful. It is like a double art.”   That is what I say!

websheiamorley-031009-076I started making boogie down beads in 2006. I am re-visiting those ideas. I never really thought it was done. Ever. Just a bunch of sketches at my bead Artist’ Gallery.


The possibilities seam endless….all in time…
