I had such a nice time in Tucson this year. It is always a joy to see my friends as well as be surrounded by beads and creative people. I brought home a few cool things from Tucson that I want to share with you.
I had a very difficult time resisting the temptation of the 75% off discount in the Soft Flex booth on beads. My birthstone is an emerald. I've admired the simple cut emeralds in the Soft Flex collection for years and just simply could not resist.
Look at that happy face. I know that I will cherish these beads for the rest of my life. If you like the emeralds, we have strands just like this one for sale in our gallery. They aren't listed online, but I can connect you to the right person to buy a strand of your own. They are pretty fabulous!
Sleeping Beauty Turquoise
I love turquoise. I've been biding my time to find the perfect strand of sleeping beauty turquoise nuggets. Ta-da, I found them. Gorgeous!
Even The Sky Is Blue
My friend Bronwyn's band came out with a new cd. Ghostcow is a local band in Tucson, AZ.
Bracelet and Beads
Lisa Kan is one of my favorite people. She always has something new and fun to offer in her booth. Plus, she and I walked 60 miles together in the Breast Cancer 3-day a few years ago. I've been admiring her glass flowers for years. This year, I picked up a gorgeous bracelet from her and some two-holed seed beads to try.
