Sherry Serafini, the bead embroidery master herself.
The previous weekend she had invited me to an artisan open house that she was doing. We spent a little time catching up and she wanted to know what I was up to so I invited her to the show. And like that she was there. Her support and encouragement meant the world to me.
If you've never seen her work, you can find her website here. If you have a chance to see her in person (either a class or art show), I highly recommend it. Her classes are great. She shares so much information and is genuinely interested in you. She encourages you to work outside your comfort zone to create something that truly comes from your heart. It is a great experience.
Additionally, she has some really incredibly cool new pieces in her collection. Her neckpieces and purses are show stoppers!
So Sherry, if you are out there. THANK YOU!
