It wasn't that long ago when I did a feature on Modern Body Chain Designers.  Lo and behold, when I walked into the first 2018-2019 meeting of the Grand River Bead Society, there was Mary Ann Helmond  (MA Beads) wearing a fabulous body chain creation of her own!

Mary Ann is a local lamp work glass artist so every bead you see in her design was made by her.  Her signature designs involve the peacock - you can click on the closeup image below to better see the peacock focal bead.  Notice the peacock feather glass drops in the tassel?  Awesome!

And here is what it looks like at the back :

Check out my past post which shows the fabulous  peacock jewelry collaboration between Mary Ann and another fellow member of the GRBS, Roxann Blazetch-Ozols who beadweaves and is also the creator of the ducette (modified lucette).

Are you local?  The Guelph area of Ontario? The GRBS's show is coming up.  The show website lists the current vendors and classes.

As you can see from the publicity material above, we are a diverse group of jewelry making enthusiasts.  My flower earrings are at top right.!
