Just a Little Shopping

Today was my day. I spent the afternoon at the Bead show and purchased a few more beads. Since I already had so many gemstones and pearls I concentrated on art beads (glass, fiber, etc.) and found some cool ones.

Here are the fiber art pendants by Meg Hannan. These are so much better in person. They look like millifiori or fabric mosaics. I think I bought four of them and can't wait to do something with them.

These are the laser etched shell pendents/charms by Lillypilly Designs. Really different.


Then of course I had to buy some more LOOT (See yesterday's post) and some lamp work glass beads.

I didn't do too bad for three hours and my goal was to get some really different stuff which I did.

I would like to really make my own beads which I tried painting on some wood and it didn't turn out the way I wanted it to. I like the idea of using wood as it is a sustainable product but now I'm thinking some fiber might be really cool and I have a lot of scraps. I'll keep trying.

I hope you had a great weekend.
