We finished our third day shopping the Tucson Gem show, dragging our aching bodies through booth after booth of beads, spreading our blossoming cold/flu virus that we acquired on some plane. Chances are it was the one to Anaheim, packed with anxious kids ready to meet Mickey! We feel like Mickey stomped the heck out of us with those big black shoes. Mickey, stop already!!
There are incredible things to see here... beads from every material and every country around the world, hand carved, mouth blown, formed from clay far away and plastic polymers closer to home. Metals punched, hammered, pierced, rolled and shaped. Stone and bone, chiseled, carved, sculpted and buffed. All beautiful and the talent showcased from around the world is incredible.
We head home Tuesday afternoon. Can't wait to get started on the new ideas we have in mind. (Yes, we have written them down due to severe memory impairment and dysfunction!)
