As you know, my second Trunk Show ~ Fall Edition,
is this coming Sunday. So I've been the busy bee, working on new items, pricing, tagging, setting a menu, sending out reminders and alllll the stuff that goes into such an event. Not complaining...just sayin'
So, I think it was absolutely fantastic and fabulous that the Best Bead Show
and G&LW would schedule their Fall Shows this week!!
On Thursday, Debbie and I headed over to the Best Bead Show at the Kino Community Center. Here's a peek at some of my purchases that inspiring my muse....
|silky soft freshwater pearls|
|great quality headpins and SOLDERED link chain!!|
|some bezels asking to be added to a soldered pendant|
And another I call "Cupcake!" ~ rose quartz and Swarovski pearls
Sunday was the final day of the show so Kiki, Vincetta and I headed over to the Holidome to check things out there....
yummy pearls ~
GORGEOUS copper jewelry art from one of my favorite artists ~ Patricia Healey
Loving these special charms (especially the bee!)
Green Prehnite ~ Aquamarine ~ Assorted Quartz
So, there you have it....my escapades for the week. I didn't realize how badly I needed to get out from under all my work and get a healthy dose of new inspiration!
I think I'm pretty well set with gems and the "nuts and bolts" of my jewelry. Or, at least until February when the BIG MAMA of gem shows rolls around - The Tucson Gem and Mineral Show!
I can't wait for my show next Sunday and I will be here on Monday to share it with you - promise!
Have a beautiful week and just think, we're only 40 sleeps aways till the first fall holiday appears!
I'm looking forward to that, actually, since it means my sweet sil arrives too!! But, that's another blogpost!
