Back On The Bead

My new jazzy bead boho Key Fobs, just posted
Nothing soothes my overheated summer 
self than a lovely day swimming........... 
in BEADS (in air conditioned splendor). 
BEAD FEST, Philadelphia 2012 in Oaks, 
PA this August did the trick.

I began beading for relaxation. 
Beads have become a passion, 
a source of inspiration and a major vice.  

To the gratitude of a number of exhibitors, a 
beadaholic friend/cousin joined me in cutting 
a swath through the aisles draped, stacked and 
dripping with temptation.

Each of us with an eye out for our own unique finds.
Sometimes falling for the same treasures.
But always with a different purpose in mind.
Making it all even more interesting.
