Thank you!

Heather Collin,Me and Gerlinde Fromont - at the Craft Show - we signed a lot of books today... and we enjoyed it. I am sure we'll do this again! Thanks to all the ladies and gentlemen who bought the book today, and the positive feedback. Much appreciated by us. Thanks to Michelle, her mom and Lisa, who worked so hard behind the scenes and today at the show too. Thanks to our dear friends that came to support us. And dear Dawn - thank you for the muffin, I needed it. On our way back home, we missed the turn-off to the free way, and had to manage our way through Johannesburg - where soccer fever were very high, but we made it safely back.
Must tell you something interesting that we also saw - a traditional beader that wore her beautiful traditional jewellery, even her clothing were traditional - adorned with beads - all made with the Pondo stitch - and believe it or not - the tubular bracelet that we admired had animal skin inside to keep the round shape in tact.She also bought the book!Well, enough said for today - I am so tired, but so happy.

  1. Hi Riana,I found your blog a couple of weeks ago. I love all the jewellery I have seen here, and in Beadwork magazine. There must be something in the air or the soil of your beautiful South
    Africa that makes your beading so special. I would love to subscribe to The Bead Book with designs from South African beaders. I also find traditional beading fascinating, although it is not my type of jewellery. We have transformed many traditional stitches to suit our European and American tastes, and the results are wonderful. Best regards from the Swedish Winter Wonderland, Anna
