The Whole Bead Show, NYC

Back from the Whole Bead Show at the Metropolitan Pavilion in NYC, where my friend Maria and I did some serious retail (bead) therapy. The selection was immense; we spent hours touching and feeling and picking up hundreds of strands of beads. Here are some that made it home with us.

Rondelles in all sizes and brilliant, gorgeous colors. They'll be great with bronze for a vintage feel, and with lots of silver for something more modern.

Small dangle charms wrapped with silver are  perfect for charm clusters on necklaces.

Lampwork bead for a pendant.

Hill Tribe Silver flower pendants and clasps.

                                            Peace. Love. Happiness
                                            For the wee, little girls.

It was the first time I went to this show and thought it was very well done and met some very friendly fellow bead enthusiasts picking their way through all the goodies just as we were. Of course we spent way too much moolah but that was the point.

I enjoyed the bead show and the company, as well. I was overwhelmed by the variety, and immense selection. I think this is my latest and greatest obsession.
