I met some awesome people there including Brenda Schweder who was wearing a most fabulous neckpiece of steel wire. It turns out that she is the talented Brenda Schweder who has authored books on jewelry design and is coming out with another one soon.
I also saw some great work, like the wonderful metal pendants by Kristi of Colliebug. Not only was her work inspiring, but I wanted to run off with her table cloth and wear it.I figured she may have noticed it missing and i would be pretty easy to spot twirling around in it.
(thats my beadie bud Melanie of Earthenwood looking over the Colliebug stash.)
Like i said its good to be home. I missed my people and my dogs.
My next road trip isn't until the end of April for the Suburban Bead Encounter. Thats April 25 in Naperville IL, so mark your calenders. Please say "Hi" if you are there. I don't bite, contrary to what you may have heard.
