As you know I have been in the beading business longer than most, some 46 years. For the most part people have been decent. As in anything there are those who are just simple asses, and think that your hard work is there for the taking. This is what my good friend Sue Horine from California has experienced. I have featured Sue on this blog before, and her bead art speaks for it self, so many of you know who she is.
About a week ago as Sue opened her bead shop three customers followed her inside. A young couple in their 20s and an older woman in her 50s. The woman engaged Sue in conversation and blocked her view of the young couple. They made sure Sue could hear them admiring her art and the prices. The young man left first and then a few minutes later the women. Sue was busy and didn't even notice that the three had stolen one of her most expensive and published pieces. There is a heart sinking feeling when you have been robbed. Sue made a police report and posted to FB. People like this, people who steel and cheat are some of the lowest and HAVE some pretty bad Karma coming to them. Honor and Integrity has been my motto for all of my life, people like this have no idea that these words even exist much less what the mean, So Sue and I are asking to be on the look out. People like this don't realize how small our big beading community is. If you see this peace in any on line store, pawn shop, small store or on some one's neck please contact Sue Horine at
88 W. Hwy 4, Suite 5
This is the piece that was stolen. You may have seen it in Bead n Button Magazine.
