Beadfest 2013
One bead, two beads, a thousand more beads!  BUT there was so much more at the Beadfest than all those lovely beads.  There were also lots of artists and students in to represent mixed media, some displaying their beautiful creations and demonstrating  their fields.  
I enjoyed my time teaching the Petite Enamel Journal Necklace workshops with Jean Van Brederode.  The students' little book necklaces were sooo beautiful.  Unfortunately, my phone pictures do not do them justice. (sorry girlz!)  But I just loved them all! Here are a few....

But now back to those beads..... there were lampwork beads, raku beads, and beads with perfect stringers.  There were glass, metal and porcelain beads, and as well as the findings and beadworking tools to go with them.  Did I just say tools? Oh my, the tools! 
At the Beadfest vendor show, some of my favorite companies were represented, demonstrating and showing the latests mixed media products.
Among those were PJ Tools, Metalliferous, Garlan Chain, S and S Lapidary, Green Girl Studio Beads, Beaducation, among others. 
There were small windows of opportunity to scurry out and about into the Expo Hall to visit a few other artists.  Here are some pictures...
