Puget Sound Bead Festival 2012

This past weekend, I met my beady friend
Linda Landig at the
 Puget Sound Bead Festival in Tacoma Washington.

I wasn't feeling my best that day but we had a great time just the same!!!
I neglected to take many pictures while I was there but I have lots of beautiful beads to show for it.

It's a good sized show with lots of wonderful booths to shop at.
I picked up some beautiful and unusual goodies.

I spotted these wonderful Carved Coral beads early on from
They were my splurge, we swung around to them after we finished and I picked up a strand,
 Linda liked them too so we split them.

Love these rustic beads from Wynwoods Gallery

I got these from Wynwoods too!
They have a store in Port Townsend too, I hope to make it there one day!

Beautiful Glass Beads from Unicorne Beads
love all the beautiful drops!

You know I love discs, I couldn't resist these beauties from

More from Sonoran Beads, look at those Starfish!!
And those 2 in front are actually bead caps!!!

Wish I had more pictures of the actual event but that's the way it goes.
I'm planning to try to be a vendor next year!

I also brought one of my big trays with some of my copper inventory to tempt Linda even more,
when we got back to the parking lot I popped the car hatch
 and we had fun going through it all and talking about it all!
 We don't get to do that in person very often!

I had a great time with Linda as always
 and spending the day looking at beautiful beads is always a good thing!

I'm also having a giveaway at my blog
