I went to the bead show and had such a great time. Besides the usual fare of: strung crystals. stones, cloisonné etc they had many lamp work bead artist and others representing one of a kind wares. I bought this lovely porcelain pendant and matching string of Peruvian opals. I needed to extend it a bit, I auditioned different metals and ended up adding these fish beads in silver.
The funniest part was when I went to check out the seller DG Designs, Danis Garcia, recognized my name and said she had read my blog. She lives about 4 hours from me, but what a surprisingly intimate world crafters live in! Lots of entries coming-I have been beading up a frenzy--
