Now That The Pasadena Bead & Design Show Is Over...

I've finally gotten a chance to blog about the show! Overall, I felt it was a great show-- lots of amazing artists out there! There were a wide variety of exhibitors who made exquisite jewelry and necklaces, vintage clothing, handpainted and knitted scarves, and even handbags! (wonder who made those?!) Of course, there were beads, beads, and more beads everywhere: Glass, porcelain, ceramic, wooden, real gems and stones, you name it... the whole place shimmered!

Here are a few pics:

I even had friends and members of my family stop by to wish me well.

I had a chance to meet some great people who had booths in the vicinity of mine, who traveled from places as far as Canada, along with very interesting customers who shared stories of how and why they were there. One customer who was staying at the hotel, was in town for a big soccer game at the Rose Bowl. Another woman was in town for business and stumbled upon the show while having lunch with a friend at the hotel.

I even ran into an old co-worker who I hadn't seen in almost 15 years! That was quite a surprise. Ironically, her face had popped up in my mind the week prior, totally out of the blue. I remember how, just for a moment, my thoughts went back in time as I wondered what had happened to her... and then she popped up at the show! It was one of those experiences where you are reminded of how life goes by and people move on in separate directions, only to be brought back together years later, sharing stories much different from when you knew one another years ago. I realized that the universe responded to what I had put out there!

Now that the show is over, it's on to the next one in September...
