another bead show

I’m always happy to go to a bead show. My friend Donna and I went to one at the Holiday Inn in Dedham yesterday. See last year’s post here, in which I show examples of how I’ve used some of the beads in my illustrations. 

It must take the vendors forever to set up their displays. I love looking at the waves of strung beads.

Most of the beads are too shiny and glitzy for me, but they are photogenic. When I’m buying, I zero in on the few that are more in their natural state.

More sparkle and shine.

  1. Oh wow! What a feast for the eyes. I spotted turtles – I would have a hard time passing those up. I do love glitz and sparkle and shine though and probably would have had to use a trailer to take home my purchases. Or not! Downsizing is hard eh?

  2. I went to a bead show in Pasadena last year, I agree with you, just a little too much bling for my taste, however, it was a wonderful experience and I had no idea of the variety before I went to the show. You have such a good eye for the unusual and I love looking at your work and noticing how you incorporate found objects.

    Thanks again for sharing, I love your posts.
