From the moment I stepped through the door I was in heaven, shiny, sparkly bead heaven! Yep today was the day of The Big Bead Show.
Mess maker and my new beady partner in crime (my lovely cousen) Amanda of melt together beads (new to beading and new to blogging so head on over and share the love). I really should have taken more photos, but you see there were too many shiny things going on!
Some of my lovely new stash....
I was lucky enough to meet up with some wonderful bead people today including the fantastic Becky of Chameleon Designs who came in second place in the bead awards (congrats), and her lovely friend Sarah of Flame Force Five, her stand was my idea of bead heaven and she had the most beautiful wooden display busts!
These are what I got from Sarah, that bottom bead is my favorite buy, I love it!
Labradorite cab from Shangrila Gems
These little beauties are tiny, and Michaela was such a nice person!
Titanium Drusy from Designer Cabochons (I could have spent hours looking at all the beautiful stones).
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend
