I picked up a few hanks of beads at Osiris B.E.A.D.S I think Melanie's outfit influenced my color choices. Wait those are my favorite colors!!After leaving the show, Rosanne and I stopped by to visit Dona Anderson. It was hard to head back home the next day. It meant the end of my visit. I was really sad to leave my family and head back to New Orleans. It was one of those time that broke my heart to leave. I am glad I brought my Mom home with me!

Bead & Button Show 2008
Every year I look forward to the Bead & Button Show. I can't imagine the man hours and planning that go into such a big event. My favorite part of the show are the enteries for Bead Dreams. This year "Best of Show" and First place winner from Nagoya Japan: Early Summer Wedding Bouquet The planning and execution of this design was exquisite. I found my friend Nikia Angel at Beyond Beadery booth. Oh boy!!...I went crazy buying crystal in assorted shapes and sizes. Our next stop was see Melanie from Earthenwood Studios. It looks like Melaine and Rosanne are having fun talking about beads. Melanie's booth was treasure trove of wonderful ceramic beads. Melanie designed her costume to coincide with her new line of steam punk beads. Being a Bead Artist and preparing for a show is a lot of hard work. I really appreciate the time and effort they put into creating Art Beads for our adornment and to use in our designs.
