More Beads Please
Yesterday I went to the Bay Area Bead Extravaganza (also known as B.A.B.E.). There were over 200 vendors selling their handmade beads, supplies and tools. My heart was full and soon my wallet empty, but it was a grand day. I came home inspired and recharged and ready to create new work. Working out new designs and with new found loves of vintage buttons has been challenging and rewarding. I love the way the buttons feel with the beads creating textures and color spots. These are some of my newest pieces now available in my Etsy shop! So the hunt continues as I wander down the pebbled road of glass beads in all of their brilliance.
