I'm just going to jump right in and give you the eye candy post now! These are all beads that I traded with various creative women at Bead Fest - one of the best parts! Click on the photos to see them bigger!
A trio of beads from Jenny Davies-Reazor. She makes yummy ceramics and I love being her neighbor at Bead Fest!
Gorgeous amulet from Diana Ptaszynski - these are new for her and so popular one even got stolen from her table!
Metal and polymer lovlies from Staci Klinger Smith - can't wait to make something with that owl! I wanted to get one of her gigantor hearts, but I didn't...
Amazing goodies from Mary at White Clover Kiln! Her ceramics are so colorful they just make me happy looking at them!
Finally some fantastic raku from Amy Mealey of Xaz Bead Company. She just gets the most amazing raku colors and I'm a sucker for hearts! She is too genergous, as well!
