Fall is in the Air!!

We’ve enjoyed a warm, dry summer here in Portland this year and now there’s that subtle shift in the air. Cooler mornings, shorter days, leaves falling…and SHOWS!

My first show of the season is the Portland Bead Society Bead Bazaar Plus on October 12th & 13th at the Doubletree Hilton by Lloyd Center (1000 NE Multnomah St.) PBS has been working really hard to update this show - make it more accessible, add multiple media vendors…and much more. I hope that you will come visit me at my table and see the yummy new designs I’ve been working on.

My silvery disc pendants and earrings will be available as well as a bunch of new fun pyrex glass straws in pretty colors. As always, I’ll have a lot of beads for you crafty types to create your own treasures with.

-> I will be hosting a few trunk shows (want to host one??) as well as an open studio event in November and December.

—> December 8th come see me at Stephenson Elementary’s Winter Gift Bazaar here in the ‘hood.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at deb@debcoxdesigns.com

Happy End of Summer!

Rainy Days

The rainy days of winter here in Portland make it a great time to spend hours in a warm, creative space making glass beads. My new studio space, located in a refurbished trailer on the side of our property, is inviting and light, a far cry from the dark, dank corner of our garage that my studio inhabited for 12 years. I just ordered some new glass colors and am looking forward to getting them tagged and organized, then play time in the torch! 2019 is the year that I get my online act together, so my goals are getting this website current and stocked with more available items, and getting my Etsy store up and running. If you’re on my mailing list or follow my page on Facebook, watch for updates!

January blahs

I don't know what January is like in your neck of the woods, but here in Portland we get a lot of gray, chilly and rainy days.  It tends to get me down and I'm not particularly creative or energetic when I'm down.  Add to that the post holiday blahs...all the excitement, events and bazaars are over, so what do I need to create?  It's a time to force myself to take a walk with the dogs, eat healthier food and get into the studio even if I have no plan or event to prepare for.  What is January like for you?

For sale....Deb Cox Designs goodies!

Yippee!  E-commerce is a good thing.  I have about 20% of my available inventory posted on the new Available for Purchase page!  Check it out!  I'll be adding more inventory daily.  For now, I've got a bunch of orders for wine stoppers to get together before Christmas!
