Well! The Innovative Bead Show in Marlboro, MA was TONS of fun. We had SUCH a good time. I got to see my dear friend Jane, and her outstanding jewelry, and I got to meet so many nice people in the Talisman suite.
Since returning home, I've been busy going over my inventory so I can restock my kit for the Funky Stuff Bead Show in Mansfield, MA. It's a one day show and is sure to be very busy. I have a full kit of the pandora-style beads which I am in love with, and I have recently discovered FACETED PEARLS!
I missed the deadline for the 30 minute Bracelets book, but, given that I only found out about it a few days before the big show, I am not being too hard on myself. Now I only need to figure out what to submit to 500 Beaded Jewelry. I was mistaken earlier in what this book would be. I confused it with the 1000 series from Quarry. The Lark book requires high quality photography and is juried. I shall do my best. Note to self: read things over carefully.
