getting hooked up with a mic at #BBJTV Beads Baubles and Jewels with Katie Hacker


Whirlwind trip to Cleveland and back this week.  Why Cleveland you say?  It is where the magical recording takes place for the PBS show Beads Baubles and Jewels hosted by Katie Hacker.  I was honored to be invited on the show while vending at the Bead & Button Show this past June.  Katie stopped at my booth and loved the skeleton keys that feature my glass beads – she asked if I would be interested in showing how I make those on her TV show.  I hesitated about 1 second before I said yes!  🙂

The experience was great fun – meeting all the hard-working people behind the scenes at the KS Productions studio.  Thank you so much….you were all so very helpful!

Make up for TV!

Learned something new about makeup….there are special products make just for the newer HD TV shows…..High definition makeup.  Yikes!  It really was fun having someone else do my face for me…..I loved what she did.

The episode I was in should air late summer of 2015 on a PBS station near you.  Unfortunately the show isn’t carried in my local area….I’ll have to get to work on that.  It is a neat show – all about Jewelry Design.  Stay tuned…..I will announce the air dates here in my blog as well as in my newsletter.
