The ISGB (International Society of Glass Beadmakers) has a convention each year, called The Gathering. I love the name - a gathering is the blob of glass you put on the mandrel before you spin your beads! I have never had the chance to attend - I'm not sure if I could, given I feel intimidated as heck by all the glass talent out there! But I've always wanted to. This year, I stumbled upon the chance to do a bead swap with other members who aren't attending the gathering as well! Sign me up! Here are the beads I received! Patsy Monk Janet Peterson Cindi Brunell Bertie Beattie Tracey Alfaro Rayren Hockett Lynn Hahn Natasha Lenaghan Chris Haussler Debi Dufrene And if you know me, you know I forgot to take a photo of the beads I sent, but they were a selection of beads like these! This was fun! I'm glad I got to do the exchange, hope I remember to sign up next year!
