More Bead Fest Loot!

Some more of my trades and/or purchases!

Traded eggs for these with Jan Onipenco, one of the East Coast Bead Mafia girls!  Her store is Molten Mayhem on etsy and she makes amazing seascape beads!

Traded enamel leaves with Amy of Xaz Beads from Utah - this raku is amazing!

Visited the Ornamentea booth and saw Elaine Ray!  She's a wonderful woman and I got these great beads while I was chatting with her!

My booth buddies to my left were the girls behind Banyan Bay Studio in Miami.  They were incredibly nice and funny!  We had a blast with them!  These beads are made from wood!  It's pressed, colored, and hand-shaped by Katherine Worthington!  She was at Bead and Button and you may see her again this year!  Her web site is under construction right now, but if you want to get some for yourself, you can email them at BanyanBayStudio@gmail.com and please tell her I sent you!

Finally, I got some of these sea urchin spines from Theodora's.  Miss Stacy Louise was the one who introduced them to me!  I have plans to make small window wind chimes from these and some of my large focal beads!  I love the tinkly noise they make!  LOL!
