Soda Pop Bling | Totemic Flights At Gallery Tilal November 29

This Tuesday November 29 there will be a Bejeweled Exhibition at Gallery Tilal featuring four participants.  I am really looking forward to welcoming you to LB o J'zazz's first local participation at a gallery level which is the ideal medium for our select artisanal work as each piece is unique and is never repeated.  Soda Pop Bling is a quirky collection playing on elements we see everyday that have been modified to a more elevated status.
In addition, Totemic Flights is a new body of work that comprises a sub grouping  within the Kindred Spirits Project.  Iconic symbols such as the totem and cross have been some of many attempts of man to connect the physicality of the body to a cosmological connection with the skies.  The vertical reaching attempts are evident in this collection of man reaching to the heavens and the cosmos.

Fareed Abdal will also be introducing a stunning select collection of new pieces of body adornment in the form of bangles that are a continuation of his play and discoveries of the letter forms and letters in the Arabic language.  These will be available by order.  The 28 Faces Of The Beloved Rings Collection will also be available by special order.

Date:  Tuesday November 29- Thursday December 1
Time:  10:30 AM- 2:00 PM
  5:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Venue:  Gallery Tilal at Tilal Mall Shuwaikh

Beading Time and Eid Al Adha Holidays Store Hours

Miyuki Seed Beads Size 6/0
Ten days, yes, ten days of potential uninterrupted beading time!  As many people are out of the country, Kuwait seems less frenetic and the traffic is manageable and after the first few days of family visits, I will be dedicating most of my time cleaning up my studio and working on new pieces for an upcoming exhibition and creating new samples for upcoming classes.
This is also a great time to head to the shop, peruse and discover all the new goodies on show to feed the need to bead.  We will be closed tomorrow for the first day of Eid and then Monday November 7th we will resume our regular shop hours:

9:30AM-1:00 PM and 5:00PM-9:30PM 
Shaab el Bahry Block 8 
Ibn el Khatib Street 
Aziziya Complex
Tel:  2261-0686
Happy Eid Al Adha holidays and wishing you all good times with family and loved ones plus some quality beading time.
