Ooooohhh! What wonderful goodies…

I’ve returned home with!  My stash includes the tiniest seed pearls I’ve ever seen plus luscious, large keishi pearls in the most delicious colors, lovely small round coral beads, faceted quartz in shades of raspberry, blueberry, lavender, and teal, chalcedony rondells, ammonites, agate, lava, beach glass, stones of jasper, jade, serpentine, carnelian, malachite, and lots of drusy (those stones that are filled with sparkly tiny crystalline formations), seed beads…oh my, the list just goes on and on!  I even found a packet of antique shell shoe buttons from the 1920’s that were discovered in a factory long after ladies shoe styles had changed to buttonless.  I bought patterned and textured brass sheet, tools, and several more packages of bronze metal clay too.  I’m bursting with ideas and can’t wait to dive into creating!  And I have so much to tell you about the classes I took!   But first I must catch up with snail mail, emails, and everything else I missed while I was away.  Oh…and my Etsy shop is open again!

  1. Welcome home! I know you are anxious to beginning creating with your new treasures.

  2. Color me jealous! We have two local bead shows coming up, but they are practically invisible in comparison to B&B. I’m glad you had so much fun.
