So how did I forget to post about my finds at Beadfest????
Oh yeah, last week was play week for the kids and I had two evening events and a visit from some friends from outta town! Crazy busy!!!
But, without further ado:
But, guess what I have planned for them???
We will be reading 'A Fault in Our Stars' soon...
This piece was definitely a splurge. It is a Raku pendant with the most scrumptious red glaze in the center. It has two large bails so it can be strung with beads or just placed on a chain or cord or fiber and worn to show it off.
It is a stunner and I am a lucky gal to own this!!!!
Alison and I couldn't pass up the AB finish hematite strands. So we purchased 4 for $10. Here's my $5 worth. Ha ha!
Here are my goodies from Saki Silver. I adore their clasps, so I was really excited to get these fun components. Especially that heart. Oooh the patina!!!!
(The tooth was for gift for Zack)
Look at these crazy beads!!!! They are large, orange circles with these funny bumps on them. This will make a really crazy piece!!! And the pearls are called cornflake pearls. I cannot wait to just string them up as is. Yum!!!
Seriously, these things are GiNoRmOuS!!!
And did I say they are HUGE?!?!
Here is the rest of the goodies from the big bead seller. I fell in love with the strand in the middle and would have bought the blue cousin, but again, budget....
These are cards that I got from people that I want to buy from in the future.
And here are the two things on my wish list so far:
Supposedly this is a seed pod. But I say it is a crown and it would look AWESOME with my Highland Games attire.
Anne Mitchell, I will be calling you!
Look at these hearts!!!!
They make the prettiest sound when they clink together.
I am thinking, 'Happy birthday to me!!!'
So, that was Beadfest Spring. The first one I ever made it to, and the last spring show ever.
I cannot WAIT to return in the fall!!!!
