My girlfriend and I are starting a jewelry design / sales business
(McQ Designs.Com) and so we are seeking in these forums.

We look forward to learning from you all.
Many thanks.

Tara Bead
Ottawa, On. Canada

I am a fairly recent arrival on the jewelry and bead scene here in
Ottawa. Art and craft shows in the urban areas of Ontario are where
I market my work. Shows from Kingston Womens Festival to Niagara-on
the-Lake in St. Catherines. I design in the ancient Middle Eastern
styles of metal work with strong tribal overtones. My principle
influence is in fabric design which is what I try to incorporate
with in each of my pieces.
