Linda Abernathy, Bead Weaver

This is just a small sampling of Linda Abernathy's work.  Stunning and detailed, it is amazing just watching her work those tiny beads.  I've put a slide show to the right. It is well worth the time to stop and look.  Even more so to come by and see her live.  As well as a very talented lady, Linda is also one of the most charming artists you will ever meet.  Hailing from the Bay Area, Linda has family throughout the Gold Country which is how we are graced with her company here at Ironstone's Heritage Museum.  We really love her visits. 
If you are a designer or just getting started with beadwork, come by and Linda will provide you with great pointers and suggestions on techniques and tools of the trade.  She has been doing this longer than the current beading fad began.  As a floral designer in one of her past lives, Linda if full of creativity.  Ever visit she delights us with a new fresh flower arrangement that is worth the stop itself! 

Linda will be her the rest of today and Saturday.  Do stop by and say hello.
