The Big Bead Show '09

Yesterday was brilliant! The Big Bead Show was like one massive sweet shop. I didn't know where to start. I bought some really gorgeous beads. Not going to post pictures of them all, but here's just a few of my purchases.

My Mum and I both bought beads made by Keiara - who is lovely! I bought the set with the cupcake and my Mum bought the snowmen, which I made into earrings for her.

Not entirely sure what I'm going to use these for yet, but I couldn't resist them.

These pictures of the Blue Goldstone beads I bought really don't do them justice. They're gorgeous.

I'm surprised I didn't spend more than I did - everything was so tempting!

Aside from that, I also sold this, on the day I listed it! And the day after that I got a custom order! My first one! It's very exciting. I'm just waiting on some briolettes, then I have four pairs of earrings to make.

Off to have a play with my new beady goodness!
