What a fantastic week it's been. First I was notified that I won a package of beads from Magpie Gemstones the lovely Szarka picked out these beautiful Rustic Tourmaline Nuggets for me and they arrived already, they are gorgeous...don't you think?
I was also one of the lucky winners of a Design Challenge by Rings & Things and will soon be one of their Blog Partners! I'll share the amazing stash of Copper Beads I'll be receiving when they arrive!
After all that excitement, there are 2 bead shows in my immediate area this weekend which is very unusual. The first one started yesterday and was so close to where I work I easily went during my lunch. It's the Beads Beads Bead show put on by Beauty in the Bead. They were in a pretty small space but it had lots of great beads. Here's some of what I purchased.
Today I went to the Bothell Bead Stampede, about a dozen different vendors with lots of variety. Here are some of the things I purchased today.
|This chain was my big splurge, it's so dangly and fun I'm sure you can understand why I had to have some!|
Finally I will share with you some of my most recent component creations now available in my Etsy Shop.
Hope you enjoyed this at least a fraction as much as I did!! :)
