Treasures





I had a fabulous time yesterday visiting the Bead and Gem show in Melbourne. What an array of gems and beads. It was definitely bead heaven. The photos show some of my purchases. There were so many vendor stalls, by the time I reached the end I was beaded out and spent out too. I'm now saving up for next years show.

LOLLLLL, i'm laughing so hard - looks like you had a GRAND time at the bead show, and i can just imagine how heavy your bag became by the end of the afternoon! it's hard to imagine just how tiring those shows can be, just to SHOP, let alone to work them, unless you've attended one. i always go into mental overload and have to come home and collapse - and have learned not to even pull out my beads until the next day, lest i get depressed over the money i've spent! mine are still spread out on the table in the living room - time to get busy. can't wait to see what you create xxxxxooooo

Oh my goodness, I am salivating here Ro! I didn't get to the bead and gem show but will mark it in my diary for next year. Looks like you picked up some amazing treasures for your art. I am sure you will make many wonderful pieces of jewelry with these.
