MARYLANDROADTRIPS.COM REVIEWS THE VCN TOUR STOPS
The website marylandroadtrips.com published a wonderful piece on the VCN studio tour. It's always nice to be appreciated.
Excerpted, "We drove to Studio 2 in Myersville, where we found inspired designs made from precious stones and metals and displayed in a pleasant rural studio setting.
Owner Beth Carey is a product of local art schools, and like many of the valley artists, she is a teacher of her trade. Students come from all over Maryland to learn how to hammer, saw, punch, drill, torch, and buff materials into sparkling keepsakes. Beth’s work is definitely beyond beads!"
