Joe and I went to Beadfest in Philly on Saturday.
Wow, talk about sensory overload! I think next year we're going to break it into two days. We were so fried by the time we got to the end, that neither one of us could look at any more beads or stones or glass or ANYTHING. Which makes me sad, because Beyond Beadery had it's big ass traveling roadshow of seed beady delights in the lobby. I couldn't concentrate on any of it, and that makes me very sad.
Before we glazed over, though, we managed to snag these from the dollar strand guys:
A few stone beads from Cherry Tree Beads:
But the coolest stuff, we bought first. Both came from Artsian Glass ( a PA artist!)
My birthday present-Maille or seed beads?
and I bought this to make something to sell, but I think I'm keeping it for ME. Because it's freaking COOL.
