I think the charms look impressive all together in this shot that Jake took. I don't mean impressive in that I have an inflated sense of self but that the designs and pieces look like a large abstract painting or assemblage. I have to admit, I am happy to be home and happier still that the day is cool, cloudy and rainy. After the heat of the convention center this past weekend; this is soooo refreshing! Many thanks to the customers, friends and fams who came out to see me at the show!
This is Jacob working hard ( ? ) at the show! No, not really; he is watching the booth before opening so we can run around and socialize. He has grown up in this business and we try to tell him that it can take him places and give him skills that will be invaluable in his life. At 12 though, you just don't want to hear these things.
This is a picture of our booth at the Puget Sound Bead Festival. It was a wonderful show and so great to see everyone that I haven't seen since Bead & Button. It is always a surprise to me how we are a bit like gypsies in this business and how we so quickly build friendships between customers at these shows.
