And it was very beady!
A friend told me that there was a trunk show in Sacramento - 2 1/2 hours drive from where we live. She said she would drive if I would go with her!
So of course I said I would love to go with her! LOL
What a day we had! I already knew a cool bead shop in Sacramento - U BEAD IT - Yvonne Rivero's shop - she is the author with the bracelet books and one ornament book. I took the 2 bracelet books I already have and bought the 3rd one. Next time I will get the ornament one! LOL
She has the most awesome bead store!!! The nicest employees and a selection of beads that knocks you over when you go in and see them all!
I have been wanting to make this cool knock off pair of earrings. I saw a pair another person designed and I liked them but she used delicas and her fringes were even and I wanted mine tapered - so I got the needed materials and I made one myself!
here is the pic.
I finished it in the car on the way to the bead show!
All I have to do is make the match and I can start wearing them! LOL
We hit Sacramento in the morning and I knew a cool bread place - so we had muffins and coffee.
We headed to the bead shop because it opened at 10 and the show didn't open till 12. We filled our trays there and decided to have them hold it all so we could get whatever the show didn't have for us after the show and add it to our orders - I buy wholesale and they have a minimum amount to get the discount - so I didn't want to have to make it 2 times in one day!
So we left there and headed to the truck show. Tables and tables of stone beads!!!! Pearls!!!! baggies of Swarovski!!! Chinese Crystal! baggies of Findings!!!! It was a huge display.
Then back to the bead shop where we filled in where the bead show left off!
Dinner at Cheesecake Factory and back home!
I was so tired I nearly don't remember anything I did after I got home. Head on pillow and had lots of beady dreams!
May all your beady dreams come true!
