NW Bead Society Show

Giveaway entries are closed,
Congratulations to Kashmira Patel!!!

A couple of weeks ago I went to one of our best local Bead Shows,
the NW Bead Society Show.
I've finally gotten around to taking pictures of my new wonderful beads!
I'll be giving some of these beauties away to a lucky commenter so don't be shy!



I always have to purchase from the lovely Lara Lutrick,
Wasn't easy to pick only these 2 sets, there was a purple set that I had my eye on but resisted in the end. I might need to go back in the near future and get those purple beauties too!

By far my biggest purchase was from Oh! Sullivan Studio,
as yet they don't have an online store (I scolded them severly for this)
so this is my once a year opportunity to purchase their amazing creations!


These little Porcelain Bees made me crazy, I purchased several pair and will be giving a pair away!







If you want to contact Michael or Vicki here is their email address

I purchased these beautiful Flourite Briolettes from


AND these Red Sponge Coral squares!!


Remember to leave a comment to win some of my stash!!!
I'll draw a winner from the comments tomorrow evening.
Don't forget to leave your email address so I can contact you when you win.

Kristi

  34. What lovely scores!! lucky you! Just when I think I must have just seen my favorite, the next one wows me equally! I getting psyched up for my own local gem and jewelry show next weekend, but there are rarely any art bead vendors. Not that I'm complaining about gem and crystal.

    I just love the re-energized creativity rush I get after a show.

  43. Oh wow I love your talent. You make some awesome bits and baubles. I eat sleep and drink beading. Right now all my beads and things are boxed up and stored because of house renovations that were supposed to be completed months ago. I could kick myself for not keeping a small kit of things out to play around with. So I am once again entering a giveaway. I love those little bees and oh just everything. You are so so fabtabulously generous. Thank you for this awesome opportunity. Please throw my name in the hat ...bye for now and Happy beading to you one and all
