Some of the old pros are still at it, amazing as always, like Art Seymour and Tom and Sage Holland. There are new artists as well, and the landscape has changed as in all areas of the bead community. But the Sonoran Glass School in Tucson hosts their own glass art show, holds a "Flame-Off" each year during the Tucson show season, and also hosted the "Bead Symposium" for the second year. You can watch the Symposium on FaceBook, pretty easy to find on the Sonoran Glass School page.
And the ISGB Gathering is coming up in Vegas, April 2-7.
I always loved your beads, nice to see you here again! :)
