Beads, Glorious Beads

Today I drove two hours to Philadelphia to attend the bead show.  I would drive six hours for a bead show.  Honestly, I would.


They are that much fun.


I felt like a kid in a candy store.


I bought citrine and aquamarine and labradorite and pyrite...


I bought apatite and rose quartz and rutilated quartz....


I bought garnet and kyanite and ametrine...


And MORE labradorite, aquamarine and pyrite, because a girl just can't have too many of those!


And, as much as I'm dying to start playing with them, I really need to sleep first.  I've been up since 3:30 this morning and am wilting quickly.  Why Rosie and Bella needed to go out at 3:30 this morning is beyond me, but nature calls at odd hours!

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!

Oh Kathy, these are incredibly delicious. Looking forward to seeing the amazing pieces you create with these beauties. Btw, I drive 5 hours for my annual bead show, each way! So worth it!

What a great show! Awesome beads! You are right it seems a candy store. Any kid will take in mouth (lol). I love Aquamarine Beads too much and I gave a necklace of it to my daughter. So was so delighted after getting this.
