Our May meeting started with our monthly "Show and Tell", passing around our most recent projects, products or books to share.

Harvene Bahr and Ron Cribel inspect a PMC pendant made by Janie at a recent members' get-together PMC workday.

Jennifer's lovely hand shows off Carol's bead and wire flower pendant.  Janie's 2-sided, lentil PMC pendant looked great.


Janet brought a work-in-progress: a mosaic gazing ball, made by covering a bowling ball with leftover stained glass pieces.

Pat is holding the silicone modeling compound Jennifer uses to make her own PMC molds and texture sheets. Kana closely inspects knotted ribbon and cord used to display Lynette's beaded steel wire pendant.

Margaret was recently inspired by silk painting and brought a couple samples, including "Moths to the Flame."

Carol led us in a beaded wire form project, inspired by her recent trip to Florida. She provided us with beads, wire and a sample beaded lizard and turned us loose to create. Janet finished a beaded angel is record time - everyone else is to finish their projects at home and bring them back in June.
