Whole Bead Show Booty

Amazing Lampies by Andrea Guarino Slemmons

Gorgeous Blue Kyanite drops, and Green Kyanite teeth and rectangles.
Pictures don't do these beauties justice!

Pyrite Donuts, amazing Blue Coral Drops and Lava Rock Drops

Love Mookaite and couldn't resist this interesting and unusual shape.

More Blue Kyanite, not sure what this shape is called but I love it!!!!

Porcelain Jasper ovals, so soft and lovely!!

Opal rondelles, my splurge of the day.

So pretty I had to share another photo of the Opal!

My friend Lara Lutrick makes beautiful beads, we even did a little bit of trading!!

The next 3 sets of beautiful Glass Beads are from

Looks like her shop is on vacation during the show,
be sure to go check it out when she opens up again.

This is a great show, not so big you can't see everything in a few hours!
I'm going to apply to be a vender next year so hope to see you then!

I hope you enjoyed looking at the beautiful beads I got,
I have so many of some of them I think I might give some away!



  1. Great looking booty Kristi! I really like the beads you got from Nicole.
