Last weekend we had a bead show here in Tulsa.We usually only get 2 a year, Summer & Fall, this is only the second time this one has been here in the Spring.It was a small show,attendance wasn't helped by our 'First day of Spring snowstorm', but I found a few things.
My niece & I had planned to go on Saturday, but we let the weather dictate & we waited until Sunday. The crowds were small so shopping was easy. I was on the hunt for some pearls since I really enjoyed working w/ the brown pearls I got in the Bead Soup Swap. I was also looking for something small & chunky/chippy to string some of my nests into necklaces I also wanted something red to string w/ my turquoise. I think I found some real gems(sorry, I really tried to resist!)In addition to stringing supplies I was on the lookout for stones to set in a ring
I've posted some pictures , & after looking at all of them together I just have to ask myself, "Is it a defined palate or a rut?"
