Staci Smith (wish I could have kept all those rings she made, lol!), Linda Hanes, Melinda Orr and Heather Marston!
Yvonne Irvin-Faus/MyElements and Michelle McCarthy/Firefly Design right next to one another. We goofed around with some of the cutest ceramic lollipop pendants that Michelle had in stock.
Marti Brown/The Dragon's Odyssey was in the same section! I buy all my niobium findings from Marti as you can't beat her selection and quality. Not only is niobium easy on my ears but the colors tend to go nicely with my raku pieces! Marti also makes fabulous polymer clay pendants!
Heather and Harry/HMB Studios was right across from Marti, Yvonne and Michelle. They always have yummy lampwork beads in an assortment of fun shapes and bright colors.
Diane Hawkey along with her super fun head beads! I came home with a blue one! Tracy Bell and Brenda Schweder were next to Diane and they were playing with lots of wire!
Meg Fillmore Mullen/Bead My Love to bask in all her seed beady goodness. I was so excited to see that she had turned some of my ceramic cabochons into kits! When I need seed beads, Meg is my go-to gal.
Donna McClaren/Beaded Chic (she brought her lovely daughter with her to help) and many more (I was too distracted at times to take photos).
It was a nice relaxing day for me and while I enjoyed not having the stress of vending, I think I'm going to take this show on next year. I love being behind the booth and spending several days with my fellow bead people. I look forward to seeing them all again at Bead Fest in August!
